(Publisher’s note – next week’s Late Night post may be delayed due to travel schedule.)
The summer doldrums continue. While the breaks for Independence Day are over, there are few guests of note in the repeats or new episodes. Kumail Nanjiani of Silicon Valley is once again in the listings, though this time it is not for his current new film The Big Sick, but the forthcoming Lego Ninjago film. He’ll be on Conan this Saturday night (the show is broadcasting from the Comic-Con in San Diego later this week) along with the rest of the main cast, which includes Nanjiani’s Silicon Valley castmate Zach Woods.
This appears to be it for this week. However, The Late Show has yet to announce guests for its shows on Wednesday through Friday. This might have something to do with the program’s planned ‘Russia Week,’ which features footage shot in country earlier this summer. Perhaps there will be some science or technology related content from Colbert’s trip?
