Outlander season 3: Essential TV stops for Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan


TV stopsFor today’s Outlander season 3 article, we’re here to talk about TV stops and hopefully what will be an extensive press tour for the cast. This will happen in the fall leading up to the show’s return to Starz, and we’re sure that many shows will have an interest in booking Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan, or the two of them at the same time.

So what shows would we like to see the two appear on? We’ve compiled a list below of five U.S.-based talk shows, whether they be daytime or late-night, that could be a lot of fun to see them appearing on. Some are focused on zany comedy, whereas others get you into a venue where you can have more in-depth conversation. Ultimately, though, any TV appearance they make is a win for the show since it attracts more viewers and adds to an already powerful fan-base!

Ellen (syndication) – This is the talk show that most celebrities out there want to appear on, given that it’s such a fun, lighthearted experience with a big reach with one of the most-talented hosts in the business. Plus, you know that she’d get Sam and Caitriona to do a little dancing! It’d be a lighthearted breath of fresh air.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (NBC) – Imagine them doing charades or one of the other fun games that Fallon plays on the show. It’s a chance for them to have some fun and show a different side to what fans tend to see in standard interviews.

Conan (TBS) – Technically, Balfe has appeared on the show before, but what Conan O’Brien does exceptionally well is group interviews with large casts. Can we get the entire Outlander gang on there for a special edition of the show? Think of the stories and the hi-jinks!

Talking with Chris Hardwick (AMC) – The newest of the shows mentioned, and also probably our favorite as someone who loves the long-form interview format. You get an interactive TV environment with fans both in-studio and online getting involved with various questions; plus, there’s a podcast edition after the fact for those who want an extended version of the interview with Hardwick.

The Daily Show with Trevor Noah (Comedy Central) – Noah’s also a skilled interviewer, and while Hardwick’s show would enable more of a chance about Sam and Caitriona’s comprehensive work as actors, this could be more of a venue for some of their political beliefs. We know Heughan and Balfe to be socially conscious, so this could be an opportunity to both talk Outlander and speak to current events.

What TV stops would you like to see Heughan and Balfe make for Outlander season 3? Share in the comments! Meanwhile, be sure to head over here to get some further news when it comes to the show. (Photo: Starz.)
