“On Monday, Latifah’s new syndicated talk show premieres (check local listings for times). It’s the reason for her whirlwind media tour, which includes appearances on David Letterman and morning shows. She retains an upbeat demeanor about it all, but you sense a bit of prevailing frustration. She’s ready to wrap up talking, and get to, well, talking. Her first guest on Monday is John Travolta, followed by Will Smith, Sharon Stone, Jamie Foxx and Jake Gyllenhaal. She’d love to have the president on, as well as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Coldplay and Kings of Leon.” -USA Today
