U2 perform five nights in a row on ‘Letterman’

Because Bono and company don’t understand the concept of overkill, U2 will follow up its high profile gigs at the presidential inauguration and the Grammys with an unprecedented five nights of performances on the Late Show With David Letterman March 2-6. The gig coincides with the the release of the band’s 114th album No Line On The Horizon.

U2 isn’t the first rock ‘n’ roll group to act as house band for a late night television show. Remember back in 2003 when the White Stripes played four nights on Late Night With Conan O’ Brien?

Fittingly, the blues punk duo will come out of hibernation on March 2 to play Conan’s last show before he heads out to Los Angeles to take the reins at The Tonight Show.

So, here’s the question: on March 2, do you watch U2 or the White Stripes? Or neither?

Rachel Maddow on ‘The Tonight Show’ last night

Delightful, whip-smart MSNBC host Rachel Maddow was one of Jay Leno‘s guests last night on The Tonight Show. I love the fact that Rachel is so comfortable in her skin, she wears her everyday dykey clothes and nerd frames to be a guest on a talk show. Rachel rocks!

Interesting fact: Rachel was the first openly gay American to ever win a Rhodes scholarship.

Let me hear from the Rachel Maddow fans. What is it you like about her?
