Almost 2 weeks and still no post about Craig Kilborn leaving CBS (eonline.com)

I like Craig Kilborn, always have early on. I think it's because his show was different than the other late night shows. First off he never had a band, and his show just had a different feel to it. The whole show seems a lot more of a relax feel to it which I like.

I know a lot of people don't like him as they find him smug & egotistical and usually that would be a turn off for me, but I always felt like he was winking at the camera while doing it. Which I think plays perfectly to my favorite alter-ego of his Sebastian the Asexual icon

I think he has the best "Desk piece" in network late night shows with "In the News" which I always think was consistent funny. I Also like To ____ With Love. "What Up" is pretty good too... His guest quality isn't great but again he tries to be somewhat unique with 5 Questions or Yambo.

I'm going to miss Kilby. Out of the 5 network late night hosts, it's close but I think Kilborn is my favorite. Letterman, I still like him but he's kinda showing his age these days. O'Brian is good, but at times too goofy for my taste. Leno, his headlines are good but I can't watch any other part of his show. I can't even remember the name of the guy on ABC (does quick search, Kimmel), I still don't know how ABC is keeping that show on the air & Kimmel is as unfunny as he was in the Man Show... Which leaves Kilborn on top for me, he's got charisma and confidence that really makes me want to watch him.

Oh well, It's Friday (if you are late reading this)... and all I want to do is dance, dance, dance!

Good riddance. Amazingly arrogant even for a talk show host.

Of course, the whole "Snipers Wanted" incident sorta soured me on him(especially given that if it was a Democrat, he would've been arrested or at leastinvestigated).

Two weeks and nobody posted, probably because all 34 of his fans were busy with something else.

Fuck him, in his stupid smug ass. At least when Letterman started and was snotty and arrogant, it was, funny. He did it to make a joke. Kilbourn does it because he is truely a prick. I hated him on Sportscenter, I hated him in Old School and I hate him on his show. Fuck him, good bye!

I never cared much for Kilborn, but he never really bothered me. What intices me, though, is that Amy Sedaris of Stangers with Candy, and sister of David Sedaris, is being rumored to be his replacment. Now, *that* would be an interesting show. If that happens I'll be looking forward to checking it out- too bad it will be on opposite of Conan.

That would be interesting, but I heard they were going to try to lure Conan away from NBC with the promise of Dave's time slot when he retires. (Logically, he's probably first in line for Leno's spot as well, but he plans on being unfunny for a great many years still, whereas I'd be shocked if Dave is still on the air five years from now.)

EDIT: Oh, and even with Jimmy Kimmell, Jay Leno and I'll even count Colin Quinn out there, Craig Kilborn was *still* undeniably the worst late night host on television. His show was a testament to the talents of The Daily Show's writing team.

Can't really comment, as I never watched his show (Gotta' watch the Cone-Zone!). However, I liked him on the Daily Show, although I think John Stewart has done a better job.

It'd be interesting if Amy Sedaris ended up being his replacement. Has a woman ever hosted the Late Show (or Late Late Show, or Late Night, or Tonight, or whatever the fuck this one is)?

I don't know what Jon Stewart's contract situation is, but perhaps CBS will try to lure him for the slot.

John Edwards is going to be unemployed in January, if they can wait that long...

The only female late night talk show host I can remember was Joan Rivers in the 80s. And that only sticks out 'cause she had Pee Wee Herman guest host for her a couple times.

He just one-upped at Comedy Central through 2008, though of course Viacom owns both CC and CBS, so who knows what corporate shuffling could take place.

The irony of that, of course, is that Stewart was Tom Snyder's regular guest host, and when the old man stepped down from the Late Late Show he should have gotten the regular hosting gig. Instead, CBS stole the host of the Daily Show, and Stewart got that job instead. We know how that turned out.

Oddly enough, I also liked Jon Stewart best of the three as the host in the 12:30 slot on CBS (back when he used to pinch hit for Tom Snyder before he took over TDS).

Although really, Conan lapped Kilbourn some time ago as being the better show of the two...so the fact that he's leaving is almost like a tree falling in the forest.

I think his Owen Hart joke, and of course this is in reference to the death, just about ended any chance of me ever watching Craig Kilborn's show, or ever giving him a chance.

Leno takes cheapshots and is often quite classless with his choice of material (Uday's corpse face need not be shown on television, whether he deserved to die or not), but what did he do when Owen died? He mentioned it at the end of the monologue and told everyone to day a little prayer for the Hart family.

Ugh. I dunno, but when that happened I was pretty broken up over it. I can't imagine what anyone would find funny.

Didn't Whoopi have a late night show? It was like Arsenio, in that it was syndicated, and, at least around here, it was on late night.

Whoopi's was more like Costas in that there was no studio audience, IIRC. I remember watching her show in my freshman year of college. She had some cool guests on there. I don't think I've ever seen Stephen King interviewed on a talk show before.

I totally agree, man ... I've hated that sumbitch ever since the extremely tacky and tasteless Blue Blazer comment right after Owen's passing ...

I hated him in 'Old School' and, for some strange reason, loved it when he bit the dust in the end.

I agree about the Owen Hart thing. I don't mind these guys poking fun at anyone. However, I feel that someone's (ANYONE'S) death should NOT be touched.

I think I remember reading somewhere that when Stewart took over The Daily Show, it's ratings went up by like 40%. Ouch.

This is the perfect time to sign up Vince Vaughn (Who, IMO, was the best of the Dave-sub hosts) and give him a show to run with.




There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

I don't know what his quote is at but I'm pretty sure that he would be taking a paycut to take that slot.

Letterman has control over the slot and he notoriously hasn't wanted to put someone on who would upstage him. (Snyder? Kilborn? Come on.) Plus Conan just signed a new deal with NBC not that long ago.

The Amy Sedaris rumor seems plausible because Letterman is a huge fan of hers.

Kilborn being a douchebag is his on-camera persona, though, that's his style of humour and it always has been.

Kilborn's character in Old School must have been REALLY easy for him to play (since he really is a douche). I love to hate Craig though, so I would put him above Leno at this point (Leno is just horrible).

I was actually upset though that I missed Kilby doing Sportscenter Old School on ESPN. Craig was pretty decent as a SC host (the only thing he's good at apparently).
