There is no easy way around saying this, but we are almost at the end of the fun time in which to watch TV. Wednesday was the last day of May sweeps, and while there are a few shows that are still to end (“Bones,” “iZombie”) that were a part of the 2014-15 season, there are more that are now in hiatus. “Empire” is one of them, as is “The Last Man on Earth.”
So while you wait, you can at least see the stars of those shows in Taraji P. Henson and Will Forte take on a very different sort of act: Clearing off a desk. In a part of a new “Late Night with Seth Meyers” video, you can see the two actors engage with some other celebrities like Patton Oswalt and Jay Leno in completely cleaning house on a desk. It’s the sort of thing you always see angry lawyers do on a legal show, so why not include it here in some shape or form? It is completely silly, but that is also a part of why we enjoy it.
Also, we like how Taraji channels her “Empire” character of Cookie for even just a second.
The only positive reassurance that we can offer fans of shows like “Empire” and “Last Man on Earth” is that at least Fox is not making you wait until midseason again to see what happens next. Both of these series will be back in the fall, and are hopefully going to get a chance to run for more episodes than they did the first season.
Obviously, this late-night clip does not hold a candle to the exit of David Letterman from CBS, but it’s still worth a quick watch and a laugh.
