I’ll start with my big miss of last week. Helen Mirren was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, to promote her movie Eye in the Sky, which is a military film reliant on drone technology. Thankfully, that episode will be the Friday night repeat. In other repeat news, Conan will repeat the recent appearance of two jetwing pilots, Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet, on Wednesday.
A program note for those watching the late night programs live this week. The NCAA college basketball tournament starts this week, with games on Thursday and Friday affecting when Conan, The Late Show, and The Late Late Show will air on those nights. Expect most, if not all of these programs to be delayed from their normal start times by some amount. Probably with this in mind, the only new episode from all three of those shows Thursday or Friday will be the Thursday edition of The Late Show.
A couple of items from last week that weren’t on the schedule. On the March 9 edition of The Daily Show the program noted that Flint, Michigan is far from the only town with a contaminated water supply. On March 10, Attorney General Loretta Lynch was a guest on The Late Show. The interview covered a number of topics, one of which was the ongoing conflict between Apple and the government over installing a so-called backdoor through the encryption of the company’s latest phones.
That’s all for this week. Expect a higher percentage of repeats for the next couple of weeks, as some shows are taking a production break this month.
