Letterman's Plan For Leno's First Week Back? Jerry Seinfeld!

The Late Show
So Jay Leno is coming back to 'The Tonight Show' on Monday, and he has some big guests lined up, including Olympic athletes and Sarah Palin. David Letterman will be back on Monday with new episodes too, and he's planning some big guests as well. One of those guests will be Jerry Seinfeld.

Now, this isn't completely surprising, since Seinfeld's new show 'The Marriage Ref' premieres on NBC March 4 and he's doing press for it and he's a regular guest on 'The Late Show,' but the timing is a little interesting. Seinfeld is a good friend of Leno's and was even his first guest on the doomed 10pm show. Seinfeld has even sided with Leno in various interviews. But he's going to be on Leno's rival the very first week Leno returns, which will be interesting. Joel tells me that Letterman usually takes off the first week of March but this year he isn't because of Leno's return.

In the next couple of weeks Letterman will also have Tom Brokaw and Mitt Romney.

I've heard Leno will have some great guests all week too.

Saw a Seinfeld show recently (late January) and during the Q&A at the end, someone asked him about the Leno/Conan fiasco. Without naming any names, I thought he was suggesting that Leno should bow out. I'm sure that whatever he says at an NBC panel is going to be in support of the network that's employing him (especially since the decision's already been made). This might be a more subtler way of supporting what he thinks is right.

Considering Leno and Letterman made up. I don't see Seinfield being on Letterman as a problem.
