Comedian Talk Show Appearances: Week of Jan. 2

Happy new year, everyone! New episodes are creeping back into late night this week. The hands-down don’t-miss appearance? Chris Gethard on Fallon, Friday night. He’ll be plugging his new book A Bad Idea I’m About to Do: True Tales of Seriously Poor Judgment and Stunningly Awkward Adventure. Based on Gethard’s storytelling prowess, some segment producer probaby won a bet for the honor of pre-interviewing the guy.
