There are more winter storms on the horizon this week, which means that you’ll more than likely be snowed in and housebound for a little while. Conveniently, all of the talk shows are back on the air with new episodes this week, so you will have an endless amount of celebrity interviews, comedy bits and live musical performances to warm your darkened living room while the ice builds outside. The best place to start is “The Late Show With David Letterman,” which will feature visits from Justin Bieber (Monday, January 31), the National (Tuesday, February 1), a rare appearance by Howard Stern (Thursday, February 3) and Martha Stewart (Friday, February 4). That’s an awful lot of heavy hitters for one show, and that’s not even including the “Top Ten” that will be delivered by Mitt Romney on Tuesday, the musical performances by Naughty by Nature (Thursday) and Robert Plant (Friday) and another “Top Ten” care of Bieber (Friday).
Meanwhile, “The Tonight Show” has Adam Sandler (Monday), Jeff Bridges (Thursday) and “True Grit” star and Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld (Friday). Jimmy Kimmel will welcome Jamie Foxx (Tuesday), David Arquette (Wednesday) and Kim Kardashian (Thursday) to “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” while “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” will feature Ice Cube (Tuesday), Samuel L. Jackson (Wednesday) and Dana Carvey (Thursday). Mötörhead frontman and metal legend Lemmy Kilmister chat with Carson Daly on “Last Call With Carson Daly” on Monday, and Bill Gates (Monday) highlights an otherwise quiet week on “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report.”
Elsewhere on cable, “Conan” will have Jennifer Aniston (Tuesday), Los Angeles Lakers star and reigning NBA Finals MVP Kobe Bryant (Wednesday) and former “Guts” host and current “Glee” star Mike O’Malley (Thursday). Kevin Smith visits “Chelsea Lately” on Monday, while “Lopez Tonight” has Jamie Foxx (Monday) and a musical appearance from OK Go (Thursday).
