I'm trying to remember the events that led to Craig Kilborn leaving the Daily Show back in 1998. Wasn't there a sexual harassment complaint by one of the producers against him? (Lizz Winstead, perhaps?)I'm not having any luck with Google, so I was wondering if anyone can fill me in.
And on a side note, Stewart & Co. have been fantastic during all the war coverage last week. The show has really become the measuring stick for news parody.
I wish they made chocolate Advent calendars for WrestleMania, although I'd skip the Mark Henry day.
He said (in Esquire) that there were a good deal of creative differences, but that she'd blow him if he let her.
The article also talked about how Winstead and the other female producer (I forget her name) used to give him hard things to pronounce on purpose just because they thought it was fun to make a "frat boy" look stupid.
Not defending either party, but just showing that there was quite a barrage of dislike on either side before the BJ joke came out.
Good riddance I say, then and now. I have never liked Kilborn, he always strikes me as thinking he is too good for everybody and comes off as an ass. Stewert just seems so much more likable and his delivery is funnier too.
A shark on whiskey is mighty risky, a shark on beer is a beer engineer.

Don't think it's a gimmick LoL. But I do get a kick of his pompous self-centered attitude especially that I'm pretty sure he's #4 out of the 4 Late night network guys one NBC & CBS (don't know how Kimble is doing). But I do like Kilborn more then both 11:30 guys, always hated Leno and Letterman is getting a bit repetitive.
But Jon Stewart is the man, Daily show is the only can't miss television show on my schedule.
cause there's limits to our liberties. 'Least I hope and pray that there are, cause those liberal freaks go too far.
I'll crush all opposition to me And I'll make Ted Kennedy pay If he fights back, I'll say that he's gay
In Bulworth (1998, Warren Beatty, Halle Berry), Bulworth drunkenly flips through cable channels while contemplating suicide early in the movie and watches a few seconds of Ric Flair wrestling Ricky Steamboat.
