California politics are enjoying a heyday on latenight television, with David Letterman welcoming all opponents of governor-elect Arnold Schwarzenegger to the fold, while Jay Leno continues to camp out with the actor-turned-politician.
Tonight, defeated Gov. Gray Davis will show up on “The Late Show With David Letterman” to personally deliver his “Top Ten List,” one of the show’s regular segs. Via remote from California on Wednesday, gubernatorial candidate and actor Gary Coleman brought his own top 10 list of “Ways California would be different if I, Gary Coleman, had been elected governor.” No. 10 on the list — “Pretty much same as Schwarzenegger, but less body oil.”
Over at the competish, Schwarzenegger was cozying it up with Leno all week, both off stage and on.
It became quite evident the night of the election that Leno and Schwarzenegger aren’t just host-guest; Leno personally showed up at the victory party to welcome Schwarzenegger to the podium. On Wednesday, Schwarzenegger turned up on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” — surprise, surprise.
