With the Olympics winding down, Jay Leno will be heading back to late-night next week and his first guests have been announced. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sarah Palin, Simon Cowell and the cast of Jersey Shore will be among the first guests on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Leno will also welcome American Olympians Apolo Anton Ohno, Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn to the program as well in his first few weeks back. It was also announced that stars such as Dakota Fanning, Kim Kardashian, Jamie Foxx and Morgan Freeman have been booked for Leno's first two weeks back in his old stomping grounds.
The ratings for Leno's primetime experiment The Jay Leno Show were down throughout the show's short run and Conan O'Brien's ratings with The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien were down compared to Leno's numbers as well, except for his final week on the show where O'Brien's popularity skyrocketed.
