Olympic Stars Making The Late Night Rounds
Gold in Vancouver means gold in TV ratings, and Team USA's top athletes will be making their rounds on the late night circuit starting tonight.
Alpine skier, Julia Mancuso, who won two silver medals in the Vancouver games (which she can add to her 2006 Turino gold) and the always entertaining Johnny Weir will be joining CNN's Larry King tonight at 9PM ET. Though you will have to endure more rehashing of the tragic Sea World trainer death. Enough already!
Greedy Jay Leno, who returns to his original spot on the Tonight Show after pushing Conan O'Brien down a flight of stairs (or something like that), will have gold and bronze medalist Lindsey Vonn as a guest this evening. Expect awkward moments and a large chin.
Speaking of Jay Leno, Tuesday he will have everyone's favorite snowboarder, and of course, gold-medalist in the half-pipe Shaun White. Also appearing on Tuesday will be Sarah Palin and musical guest Adam Lambert. ?????
Apolo Ohno, the sexiest and most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian ever (eight medals) was promoted as appearing on Wednesday's show, but right now he's not listed. Surely just an oversight. Better be.
U.S. men's figure skater and gold medalist Evan Lysacek will be appearing on David Letterman on Tuesday, up against Shaun White on Jay Leno. Hello DVR!
We already missing Scott Lago, half-pipe bronze medalist on Jimmy Kimmel, but you can watch the show here.
Missing in action is men's alpine skier Bode Miller, who took three medals in Vancouver, a gold, a silver and a bronze. Miller's pretty reclusive so it's not that surprising.
Also missing is our men's 4-man bobsled team, who took the gold first the first time in 62 years. Driver Steve Holcolm, and team mates Steve Mesler, Justin Olsen, and Curt Tomasevicz deserve lots of recognition, so let's get on this late night dudes.
The U.S. Men's Olympic hockey team may have won silver, but their craptastic attitudes while receiving the silver was totally lame, so eff them. We'll keep you posted of any additional appearances - or leave a comment if I missed one.
