Fallon definitely improved though which is awesome.

What does Fallon do? Like, I know he does the singing thing and impressions, but is he good with jokes and skits?

Same will go for for Late Night when Seth makes his debut.

I don't have high hopes for Seth and I imagine NBC feels the same way. Seth is older than Fallon, comes from literally the same background and is ugly as poo poo, so his hire clearly isn't a succession plan. Meyers is there to fill a spot and I'm wondering what, if any, value he brings to late night. All things considered, it wouldn't a surprise to see Seth replaced either in the next year or the second his contract expires.

Meanwhile, apparently Chelsea Handler is ending her E! show:

Handler said on Stern’s show that she’d like a forum like Netflix. Broadcast networks probably are out, given Handler’s raunchy brand of humor.


Yes, her "raunchy brand of humor" and not her failed ABC sitcom or the fact that her ex-boyfriend runs NBC.

This poorly worded article makes it sound like CBS was considering Handler for Craig's job even before Dave's retirement announcement.....unless they were actually referring to what would happen if Craig did not renew after this year.

Wow, if Handler's people think leaking that poo poo is going to get her that job she's going to end up hosting Sunday nights at Yuk Yuk's.

The only person who remembers the Craig Kilborn days is, possibly, Craig Kilborn.

Well, a long time ago people actually watched The Daily Show for the jokes and not just to have an unfunny liberal blowhard reaffirm their political beliefs. Those who enjoyed the jokier Daily Show still fondly remember Kilborn's run.

Yeah, not a household name like Conan O'Brien, Craig Ferguson, Pete Holmes, etc. were when they got their gigs.
Maybe "Win Ben Stein's Money" was the "name recognition" that got Jimmy Kimmel his show?

I'll give you Conan, but Ferguson was on The Drew Carey Show for years and Kimmel had The Man Show in addition to Win Ben Stein's Money. No clue who Pete Holmes is or why he's part of this discussion.

It was a bad appearance and Conan wasn't helping with his lazy set-ups ("I hear you watch TV"), but you'd have to be insanely thin-skinned to consider his light ribbing of the woman in the audience a take down.

Tonight's episode was really incredible, too. He absolutely hijacked a segment with Mackenzie Davis 2 or 3 times with weird non-sequiturs.

Not to diss Norm or anything, but Mackenzie Davis talking about picking up roadkill and owl pellets to make "art" shouldn't have been interrupted. I would have loved to learn how far down the rabbit hole her madness goes.

Maybe, but Colbert out of character is kinda of a wooly-sweater kind of guy, so it could be a very different show than we're used to.

Just because he's not doing the Colbert Report character doesn't mean he won't do a character. Johnny Carson was a hard drinking poon hound, but he still played folksy on his show. Colbert would be an imbecile if he didn't do at least some variation of his 'clueless but ardent broadcaster' character because, let's face it, vanilla Colbert is a loving bore.

Also, Morena Baccarin is very attractive, and the actress from Hercules is stunning enough that Craig kind of forgot how to talk (should be tonight's show) and he made a point of talking to the studio audience between segments to marvel about how dumbfoundingly stunning/scary she is.

I will say that as bizarre as this pick is, its nice that CBS is getting someone who isn't a Hollywood insider for the position. All the current hosts have the same voice and style so even if Corden is terrible, at least he's bringing something fresh to the table.


VVV Kilborn was about as well known then as Colbert is today.

MacDonald wasn't just offensively unfunny, he's the kind of guy that makes you kinda nervous and uncomfortable and twitchy just to watch him.

That's his schtick. To his credit, MacDonald talked about wanted to change the format of the show to something more like Tom Snyder's Late Night. It might've been a terrible idea in execution, but at least its something a little more interesting than having a sixth late night host doing the same tired poo poo night after night.

What makes you think James Corden won't keep Geoff and the horse?

I think his question was more why is Craig choosing to leave given he's basically doing the same thing in his new role. It wouldn't have been difficult to sort things out for him to stay on as Late Late Show host and it sounds like CBS was willing to keep him there.

It depends on the contract, but if he owns a piece of his new show, he's got a lot of that sweet syndication money coming his way. Also, being a more public face (late night vs early evening) will lead to more opportunities for product endorsements and the like.

I think Corden's fatness makes him seem more genuinely human and likeable than those other hosts. His fat face has a childlike quality to it. I don't know, I also like Kimmel, so maybe its just me.

-He needs a sidekick. While he does a great job on the face-to-face segments from behind the desk, everywhere else it feels like hes drowning and there's no one to throw him a life raft. Armisen arguably made the show worse, so I'm not sure what they could do to help here. At least a little more banter with the band or camera crew, anyone, really, would help I think.

Who's the best late night sidekick: Geoffry Peterson, Guillermo or Andy Richter?
