Awesome TV programming alert! Make sure to catch The Battle for Late Night on A&E this Tuesday, April 27th at 10pm EST. It’s a two hour documentary on all the behind-the-scenes action from the beginning of late night television until today.
The doc will focus on everyone from Don Rickles and Johnny Carson, to David Letterman and Jimmy Fallon. The show will focus on the drama and business aspects of what goes on behind closed doors in one of the most popular formats in television history. And yes, Conan and Leno will be discussed. The show will also explore the successes (David Letterman) and failures (oh, hey there, Pat Sajak) of just about everyone who’s made an attempt in late night.
The special is scheduled to air two more times; check out the listing info here.
