Talk-show Tango Nov. 21-25: Jerry Seinfleld cohosts, Jamie Oliver cooks, Feist plays and – gah! – Nickelback is back

I’ve been worrying about you. How are you? I mean, you know, without Regis Philbin holding forth on Live! with Kelly? I know. My eyes are still puffy from all the tissue dabbing since his last show, on Friday. But be brave. Jerry Seinfeld is filling in for a couple of days. We’ll get through it together. And it’s American Thanksgiving this week! Sure, it means absolutely nothing to Canadians, but I’m feeling a bit festive and Jamie “I Enjoy Looking Like a Rumpled Bed” Oliver is lounging about on a few shows this week with some turkey-trussing secret or other. Surely I’ll remember by Christmas, which is a shocking mere five weeks away. And Nickelback? I wish they’d stay back wherever they were, but they’re on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Strombo this week. Couldn’t both shows just give more stage time to Feist? Though she does get one lovely spot, also on Kimmel. Ah well. Enjoy.
