Every network looks to book talent first: NBC Universal is taking the concept to a new level with the singer Jon Bon Jovi.
Over the next two months Bon Jovi, whose new album, “The Circle,” will be released on Nov. 10, will be seen exclusively on shows on outlets owned by NBC Universal. These appearances will include the “Today” show, “The Tonight Show,” “The Jay Leno Show” and "Satuday Night Live" — and even an interview on the "NBC Nightly News” with Brian Williams. Bon Jovi also will appear on “Inside the Actors Studio” on the Bravo channel of NBC Universal.
Bon Jovi is being called NBC’s “artist in residence” for the two-month period.
