But the biggest surprise may be Sarah Palin, who appears next Tuesday.
Leno is back with all new Tonight Shows starting one week from today, and the guest list is a mix of Olympics stars, celebrities, and yes, a very well-known former VP candidate.
Jamie Foxx and Lindsey Vonn are on night #1, while Palin is a guest Tuesday night. This isn’t Palin’s first Tonight Show appearance – she made a cameo on the Conan O’Brien version (with William Shatner) in a hilarious bit in December. One show she probably won’t be showing up on – the new (old) head-to-head Leno competitor, Late Show with David Letterman.
Joining Palin Tuesday will be Shaun White. Other notable guests include Simon Cowell, Morgan Freeman and Matthew McConaughey.
