Airing after the first NFL game of the season, Thursday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” is position to attract a large audience.
It, fittingly, features a very high-profile guest list: Reese Witherspoon and U2.
The Oscar-winning Witherspoon appears as the episode’s lead interview guest; she also participates in a “Cooler Heads” sketch.
U2 performs on the episode. Photos suggest they performed new single “You’re The Best Thing About Me” as well as “Joshua Tree” Track “Bullet The Blue Sky.” It is unclear if both will air during the actual broadcast.
