  1. I have no clue what to expect from that Community casting.

  2. Tran says:

    Two things I’m looking forward to: The post Super Bowl episode of Blacklist with Ron Perlman and James Corden as Letterman’s guest November 21st. One of the things I’m NOT looking forward to: Peter Pan Live. BTW, still no word on when Late Show with Stephen Colbert will debut but I can’t wait come March 9th when Corden takes over The Late Late Show.

  3. Angela says:

    Oh, wow, interesting casting for Britta’s parents! I am VERY intrigued about that.
    Also, shame to hear about Bono’s injury. Wishing him a speedy recovery.

  4. ArchieLeach says:

    Did Bono injure his arm patting himself on the back?

  5. HAP says:

    Wouldn’t it make some sense if CBS had both late night hosts debut on the same night?

  6. Joey Padron says:

    Great casting for The Blacklist for their post Super Bowl episode. Ron will do great on the show. Great casting for Britta’s parents for new season of Community.
