Leno Taps Cluster Of Comics To Act As Celeb Correspondents On New Show (VIDEO)

Jay Leno introduced some of the correspondents he'll be relying on for laughs this week before the Television Critics Association. Comedians D.L. Hughley, Mikey Day, Rachael Harris, and Jim Norton will all be regulars as will "NBC Nightly News" Anchor Brian Williams. Williams is no stranger to late night with his frequent appearances on the "Daily Show" and "Saturday Night Live." Hughley is returning to TV after the cancellation of his CNN show "D.L. Hughley Breaks the News."

Leno has always used celebrities as reporters, most memorably Dave Chappelle at the winter Olympics, Mo Rocca at the inauguration, and Tom Green at a ice fishing hole. His new show premieres Monday September 14 at 10p ET.
