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.

IIRC, Kilborn said in a magazine interview(Maxim? Vanity Fair?) that Winstead had sex with him to get her job.

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.

Also, CBS really did think he would be perfect for the Late Late slot. Wasn't a part of it the "Bristol" incident? Didn't ESPN threaten to sue?

Am I the only one who thinks/thought that Liz Winstead and Jon Stewaert are related/seperated at birth?

I just thought it was a weird coincedence.

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.

Lizz was the creator and exec producer at the time. She didn't have to have sex with Kilborn to get that job. If anything, it'd have been the other way around.

I do miss Lizz, but here's why Jon Stewart is a TV legend:

What five questions? I remember he pared it down to four, but this is the perfect job for him. And no Coke commercials yet that sound smarmy, either!

Kilborn's entire gimmick is that he and his show are the greatest things ever, which makes him the polar opposite of Letterman and Conan.

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.

I'd rank it

1) Conan
2) Letterman
3) Craiggers
4) Leno
5) Kimmel, who I say is funny in small doses but is too obnoxious to have a full show.

Jon Stewart would top this list were it not for the fact that his show isn't really the traditional talk show.

I second Big Bad's list; however, according to what I heard on Boers and Bernstein (Turnip), Kimmel's M18-49 numbers are killing Killer.

In all cases, the original sounds identical or better. Is that just an online vote? Because that's how ours works - you have to vote on the 12 flavours without trying them, and the winner in each category is released.
