I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

Talk-show tango Aug. 24-28: Anna Wintour on Letterman’s Late Show and Jay-Z on Bill Maher’s Real Time

In late night, talk show, television, tv on 08/24/2009 at 9:22 am

There’s a bit of a lull before the fall TV season starts up and that includes talk shows, with many still coasting in reruns. New this week are Letterman, O’Brien, Kimmel and Handler. Of those, I’m looking forward to: Anna Wintour on Letterman Monday night, talking about the doc made about the making of Vogue’s biggest annual project, called The September Issue; Bill Maher visiting O’Brien Monday night; and Jay-Z and Bill Moyer in one-on-ones with Bill Maher on Friday night.
