Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, talks to reporters as he emerges from the Senate Chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington after his overnight crusade railing against the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as "Obamacare." (Sept. 25, 2013) (Credit: AP )

Ted Cruz, the Texas Republican senator who forced the recent government shutdown will appear on "The Tonight Show" Nov. 8 to"discuss the recent government shutdown, the debt ceiling, the gridlock in Washington and the current state of the Republican Party."

Maybe Jay wants to get out that old hourglass he used when Bill Clinton first came on the show nearly a quarter century ago.
