Talk-show tango Aug. 3-7

David Letterman is in repeats, joining Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, Bonnie Hunt and George Stroumboulopoulos. But take heart. Highlight of the week is sure to be Meryl Streep on Colbert on Thursday, promoting Julie and Julia, which opens Friday and in which she plays Julia Child. Second will be either Eli Roth (Kimmel on Wednesday) or Quentin Tarantino Kimmel on Friday), both stumping for Inglourious Basterds (opening Aug. 21). Here’s a trailer for Basterds.
