In the long feud between Team Jay and Team Coco (that would be Conan O’Brien), ugly remarks were thrown back and forth, incessant jokes were made, tempers flared, and essentially, NBC wants us to pretend like nothing ever happened.

So, whether you like it or not, Jay Leno is coming back as the host of The Tonight Show (although NBC would prefer us to think he never left and we were dreaming during the months of Conan’s reign). If you hate Jay, sorry. But, there’s still a reason to watch his opening show…and the one after as well. Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White will be on. Apolo Ohno too! Lindsey is Jay’s guest on his first show, Monday March 1st. Pretty nice honor for Lindsey to be invited on his first show back!

Shaun will be on Tuesday March 2nd, along with Sarah Palin. Lindsey will be joined by Jamie Foxx and Brad Paisley.
