Live from New York, It’s… ‘The Tonight Show’!

Jun 5, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Lorne Michaels is now longer producing Conan O’Brien’s late night antics– but "The Tonight Show" is planning to showcase a number of "Saturday Night Live" alums in coming weeks.

No less than three ex-"SNL" cast members are scheduled to visit with O’Brien over the next two weeks, according to a guest lineup for "Tonight" released by NBC. The wave begins Monday when Eddie Murphy is set to be O’Brien’s lead guest.

Later next week, former "Weekend Update" anchor Norm MacDonald has been booked for the June 11 edition of "Tonight." And the next night, June 12, longtime "SNL"-er Kevin Nealon is scheduled to stop by.

O’Brien, of course, did a stint as an "SNL" writer before he took over "Late Night."

"SNL" isn’t the only sketch show supplying guests for O’Brien. Jamie Foxx, who first came to fame on "In Living Color," has been booked as both a guest and a musical performer on June 12.

Here’s the full list of guests who’ve been announced to appear on "Tonight" over the next two weeks:

Monday, June 8: David Duchovny and Anna Friel
