Talk-show Tango Nov. 28 – Dec. 2: Zooey Deschanel, She and Him, Jeremy Piven, I Melt with You and more

There’s a little bit of everything being promoted with guest appearances this week, but my two faves are Jeremy Piven, stumping for a dark little bit of business called I Melt with You and the luminous Zooey Deschanel who is doing double duty promoting her TV show, The New Girl, and her new holiday album via She and Him. Here are a couple of aperitifs and then the usual list. Ciao baby.
