Guests of the Week: Jan. 5-9, 2009

Here are our picks for the guests who will be worth watching during the coming week. Feel free to weigh in if you have a guest to recommend.

David Letterman welcomes Ricky Gervais on Monday. Jay Leno has Adam Carolla on Tuesday, and any appearance by the Ace Man is reason enough to set the TiVo in the Talk Show News household. Craig Ferguson's strong lineup includes William Shatner on Wednesday, Amy Sedaris on Thursday and Paula Poundstone on Friday. Bonnie Hunt hosts the always hilarious Carrie Fisher on Wednesday.

Don't Bother: New "Bachelor" Jason Mesnick makes the rounds on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (corporate synergy alert!) and franchise fan Ellen DeGeneres. Of course, since the show only starts airing Jan. 5, it's not like he'll be able to give anything away. "I'm madly in love with... someone!" Boring!

This week's Iron (Wo)man Award for Publicity goes to "Bride Wars" stars Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, who will be plugging their movie on "Late Show" (Kate), "Tonight Show" (Anne), "Late Night" (Kate), "The Daily Show" (Kate), "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (Anne), "The View" (Kate), "Live with Regis and Kelly" (both) and "Ellen DeGeneres" (Anne). I'll just be glad when the film finally hits theaters so I won't have to sit through that stupid trailer again.

Update, 1/5: Kate Hudson's off and Rachel Maddow is on Wednesday's "Daily Show," and Gervais is now scheduled to appear on Wednesday's "Late Show with David Letterman."

    Jason picked the DCC cheerleader as his final lady. Its all over the bachelor boards. I wonder if Ellen already knows who he has picked.
