Once again, about half the late night and talk shows are on vacation this week. Almost everyone should be back after the Monday holiday.

And in the meantime, this week doesn’t find too many comedians in the lineup of our usual shows. I’ll still be posting video clips daily of the funny stuff that happens, but for my weekly rundown of what you should TiVo, we have slim pickins.

  • After what I think was a solid Emmy performance last night, Jimmy Fallon (and his writing team, most likely) look to be taking tonight (Monday) off. We have what sounds like a clip show in store, but a possibly very funny clip show, featuring recent Late Night parodies of tv shows (and featuring the cast of those shows) ranging from Lost to Glee.
  • Comedian Adam Goldberg is on Craig Ferguson tonight.
  • Comedy legend Rob Reiner is on Tavis Smiley tonight.
  • Whitney Cummings will be on the Tonight Show tonight.
  • Then we have to skip to Thursday night, when Billy Gardell is on Craig Ferguson.
  • Also on Thursday, Greg Proops is on Chelsea Lately.
  • And Will Arnett is on Letterman, Thursday.
  • Finally, Louis CK is on the Tonight Show on Friday.
