TiVo Party Tonight: Morrissey, Mark Olson & Gary Louris

Ever wonder what will happen during the last five minutes of late-night TV talk shows? They let musicians onstage! Here are tonight’s notable performers:

tivomorrisseydJimmy Kimmel Live (ABC): Morrissey
No offense to Sarah Silverman’s ex, but first reaction: Why is Morrissey doing this junior-varsity late-night show? According to this fan site, it’s actually part of a live outdoor mini-concert in Los Angeles. The obvious joke about a Morrissey “mini-concert,” of course, is how blink-of-an-eye brief that show would be for the 45-minute wonder.

Late Show With David Letterman (CBS): Mark Olson & Gary Louris
The reunion of these two ex-Jayhawks resulted in a recent album, Ready For The Flood. We were hoping for a dramatic storyline to be revealed about the Jayhawks’ breakup, but none seems to be forthcoming from this mild-mannered alt-country camp. It’s like if the cast of Northern Exposure got back together.

Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC): The Bird And The Bee
Slow night for the TiVo! The Los Angeles duo of singer Inara George and multi-instrumentalist Greg Kurstin played “My Love” (from new album Ray Guns Are Not Just The Future) on Leno last week; we think they’ll do “Love Letter To Japan” on Kimmel.

Super Bowl (NBC): Bruce Springsteen And The E Street Band
The band, which is reportedly doing this show for free, isn’t saying what it will play in its allotted 12 minutes, but Vegas oddsmakers like this set list best: “Glory Days,” “My Lucky Day,” “Badlands” and “Born To Run.” We say: Don’t bet on it. And here’s hoping Little Steven doesn’t have a wardrobe malfunction; no one needs to see that.
