Late-night notes: Jay Leno visits Craig Ferguson; Obama returns to ‘Daily Show’

Even though we are not yet in the November sweeps just yet, late-night TV is still rolling out some big names that are not just coming onto their shows … they are also appearing on other people’s shows.

The biggest surprise of all at the moment comes to us courtesy of “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” who is going to be welcoming Jay Leno on the show for the first time later this month. Ferguson previously appeared on “The Tonight Show” back in 2011 to promote the latest “Winnie the Pooh” movie, and he had appeared once before that all the way back in the late 1990s. Considering that Ferguson’s show is at least partially produced by Worldwide Pants, otherwise known as David Letterman’s production company. We’re sure Dave will not come up as a topic of conversation on the night, but we are pretty sure that it will still be awkward.

Meanwhile, we have also learned that President Barack Obama is going to be returning to “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” for an interview that will air on Thursday, October 18. This is the sixth time that Obama has visited with Jon Stewart on his late-night program, but only his second since entering the Oval Office as President. Then again, this is also two more times than any president before Obama decided to appear on the show while in office. (We also doubt sincerely that George W. Bush, who has shied away from giving many interviews at all, will ever be stopping by.)

Which of these interviews are you more excited for, and which do you think actually has the great potential for laughs? We want to hear some more of your thoughts below! Stay tuned, as we will have highlights from both next week.
