Talk-show tango: 2011 debuts with Seth Rogen, Gwyneth Paltrow and Roseanne Barr

In television on 01/03/2011 at 8:18 am

Happy New Year and the best to you in 2011. Some highlights for this week, followed by the usual guest lists.

Looks like it’ll be a while before we get either film, but the promo is heating up this week for Country Strong, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw, and Green Hornet, starring Seth Rogen. And you should know Paula Abdul is back, promoting her new show Live to Dance, which premieres Tuesday and Wednesday this week on CBS.

Oh yeah. There’s also a whole lot of “tba” below since some shows appear to be keeping bankers’ holiday schedules and are a bit behind on the guest schedules. I’ll be hovering and will update later today or Tuesday.
