HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - With the world's attention on the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio, some of the NBC's regularly scheduled programming will be a break. Even on late night Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show gets a little bit of a summer break, but they're gearing up to be back full force once the torch goes out in South America. New episodes of The Tonight Show will start on Monday, August 22nd. The first guests to come on The Tonight Show once Fallon returns include some absolutely massive names. Robert DeNiro will be joining Fallon to talk about the U.S. release of his latest film, Hands of Stone. The movie follows the life of professional boxer Roberto Duran and also stars actors like Usher and Edgar Ramirez. PGA star Jordan Spieth will also be coming on the first new episode after the Olympics, likely to talk about his decision to withdraw from the Rio games and talk about how the rest of the field played. The 22nd's musical guest will be De La Soul. The hip-hop group will be releasing its latest studio album, And the Anonymous Nobody, later in August.
