CBS’ and NBC’s late-night shows will continue to air repeats the week after Thanksgiving as the Writers Guild of America and studio negotiators return to the bargaining table.

NBC is digging deep into the “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” vault with five vintage episodes featuring the first headliner appearances of five of today’s biggest stars.

“Leno” will rerun a 1992 episode with Tom Hanks, a 1993 segment with Julia Roberts, a 2000 appearance by Matt Damon and 1995 episodes featuring Jennifer Aniston and Johnny Depp.

Running out of recent episodes to repeat as the writers’ strike goes on, late-night show producers have been looking for ways to explore their archives.
