Oh, those dog days of summer! Both of CBS’ late-night shows (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden) and NBC’s Late Night Night with Seth Meyers will be airing “best of” episodes this week.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel will be welcoming cast members from Disney’s The Lion King all week as well as Tracy Morgan, who will no doubt be talking about his emcee duties for the ESPYs award show airing this Wednesday on ABC.
