Jay Leno will be reclaiming "The Tonight Show" with help from Sarah Palin, Lindsey Vonn and Jamie Foxx.

They will be among Leno's guests next week when he returns as host of NBC's late-night show.

Foxx, Olympic skier Vonn and musical guest Brad Paisley will appear on Monday. Palin is scheduled for Tuesday, along with Olympic snowboarder Shaun White.

NBC said Monday that other guests set for Leno's first week back include Olympic champion Apolo Anton Ohno (ah-PAH'-loh AN'-tahn OH'-noh), Avril Lavigne (AV'-ril la-VEEN'), Morgan Freeman and Matthew McConaughey (mih-KAH'-nih-hay).

Conan O'Brien exited as "Tonight" host after NBC sought to move him to a later time slot.
