Now that the Sochi Olympics are over, NBC is back to its regular schedule. Late Night with Seth Myers made it’s not-bad debut last night with its Fred Armisen-led indie-all-star house band, and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon has been on since last week. Have you checked out either? Myers seemed a little stiff, still trying to get out of ‘Weekend Update’ mode, but there were some good comedy bits I thought.
SNL returns this week (3/1) as well with Beck as musical guest and Jim Parsons as host. Next Saturday (March 8), Girls creator/star Lena Dunham will host with musical guest The National. Way to go, guys!
The National continue their world tour and will play two Celebrate Brooklyn! shows in Prospect Park in June.
