The Late Night Fix: April 9-14, 2012

Pulp

As might be expected during the first week of festival season, we have a generous bounty of great acts on late night. Jimmy Fallon managed to score Pulp before they head out to the desert for Coachella. He also has White Rabbits and The Ting Tings. Belgian-Australian electro-pop star, Gotye, makes his American TV debut on SNL. Conan welcomes M. Ward and Arctic Monkeys. The week's best overall slate may belong to Letterman, who hosts Tennis, Kaiser Chiefs, Alabama Shakes, and Bonnie Raitt. Carson Daly will show live footage of Foster the People and Dr. Dog. Esperanza Spalding pulls double duty on The Daily Show and The Tonight Show. Leno also has Feist and Neon Trees. Even Jimmy Kimmel got in on the fun with his booking of The Civil Wars and The Shins.
