It’s the final week of March, and though we have a fresh few days on our hands, the late night lineup is looking suspiciously like last week’s. It’s not surprising, as Miley Cyrus hits the shows hard in support of her new film “The Last Song” (which hits theaters this Wednesday, March 31) and Justin Bieber continues his publicity rounds for My World 2.0 (which is expected to top the Billboard album chart this week).
Bieber visits “The Tonight Show” on Thursday (April 1), wrapping up a music-heavy week for Jay Leno that includes Joss Stone on Monday (March 29) and OneRepublic on Wednesday (March 31). Meanwhile, Cyrus will take her act to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Tuesday (March 30) on a show that will also feature a performance by Erykah Badu. (Miley will also drop in on “Ellen” on Wednesday.) Kimmel will also welcome Matisyahu on Wednesday and OK Go on Thursday.
David Letterman has an excellent music lineup this week as well, highlighted by She & Him on Friday (April 2), the Whigs on Wednesday and Usher (celebrating the release of his new album Raymond vs. Raymond) on Monday. But the best music lineup goes (as always) to “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” which will feature sets from Julian Casablancas (Monday), Drive-By Truckers (Wednesday) and Liquid Liquid (Friday).
Finally, Snoop Dogg makes another round of talk show appearances this week — he’ll be on “Last Call With Carson Daly” on Tuesday and “Lopez Tonight” on Monday.
