I thought Jon Stewart was always discussed as a possible new host...

Tucker Carlson?
2004-10-18 10:32:13 PM  
i miss craig...
2004-10-18 10:33:00 PM  
Tom Green is the second best late night guy right behind Conan.

I loved Kilborn when he was on ESPN. A very funny and entertaining guy to do the sports. When he jumped shipped and went to Comedy Central to do The Daily Show, he was still funny, but not as entertaining. After that, I never followed his many career moves as I figured he was on a sinking ship and I didn't want to watch him go down with it.

How many people remember when he was on ESPN or that he was the original host of The Daily Show?
2004-10-18 10:48:51 PM  
Kilborn just isn't that funny. Jon Stewart and Conan kick his ass.
2004-10-18 10:54:50 PM  
Kilborn had models on every and night and would just talk about something stupid that happend to them on a photo shoot. While it may have been fun for Kilborn it was painful to listen to his interviews.
2004-10-18 10:55:04 PM  
Howard Stern said that permanent replacement is Michael Ian Black. I think that's cool. I wouldn't have minded Amy Sedaris either. Oh well, I don't watch talk shows.
2004-10-18 11:40:39 PM  
Anyone else is better then Craig . Except Michael Ian Black , he's the one person I could come up with that would be even worse then "craiggers". I've seen him do stand up, I didn't even have occasion to smile during it.

/In the cone zone
2004-10-18 11:41:47 PM  
Michael Ian Black???!!!! Right on!

Sadly, I doubt it. He's too good for the majority to like him.

Amy Sedaris? Was she up for that spot? I like her but can't see her as a talk-show host, having such a malleable personality. Huh.
2004-10-18 11:56:45 PM  
I haven't seen these, but I have a soft spot for Michael Ian Black and anyone else from The State. Whether or not he'd do any good as an interviewer I have no clue.
2004-10-19 04:52:03 AM  
Old and Busted - Craig Kilborn. New Hotness -- anybody else
2004-10-19 04:52:41 AM  
he sucked on cbs, he should have stayed on CC or ESPN. i never watched his show completely through.
2004-10-19 04:59:22 AM  
the late late show is garbage anyway, why does anyone care. At that hour you should be either, sleeping, watching pr0n, or sleeping.
2004-10-19 04:59:46 AM  
Who? What now?

2004-10-19 05:01:18 AM  
His smartest guy in the Hamptons thing just wasnt cutting it....

2004-10-19 05:02:08 AM  
Michael Ian Black hosting a talk show?

It could work, but there's just something that makes me think Kevin Allison would be better.
2004-10-19 05:05:48 AM  
Ahh, farkers who remember The State are the bestest farkers. I wanna dip my balls in it!

HumbleGod, thanks for the reference.

2004-10-19 05:07:21 AM  
Why did craig leave?

/not that i mind. he's a maxim-reading wank.
2004-10-19 05:07:25 AM  
I sense a pattern.

Craig does show
Craig leaves show
Show does better.

Hell, it worked for the Daily Show.
2004-10-19 05:10:01 AM  
guess losing the daily show wasn't indicator enough that he sucked
2004-10-19 05:11:21 AM  
Am I the only one who'd think Adam Corralla would be great? I still listen to loveline and he still cracks me up. Though I don't get tv so I didn't see him perform.
2004-10-19 05:12:18 AM  
Ahh, farkers who remember The State are the bestest farkers. I wanna dip my balls in it!

Top secret documents?! I wanna dip my balls in it!

Though, I challenge anybody on who saw the short lived Dana Carvey Show. Oh my god...that was one of the FUNNIEST shows on TV, even if it only lasted for four episodes.
2004-10-19 05:18:07 AM  
And two other The State alumni are on Reno 911.
2004-10-19 05:18:50 AM  
I used to love Jon Stewart's bit, but he's gotten waaay too political. If he could actually do a comedy show instead of a 30 minutes hate on somebody I don't care about I'd be delighted for him to replace that hack killborn. I think Craig should, in what passes for a joke on his show, Quit!(look at a different cammera), Quit!(look at a different cammera), Quit!!! and never be on tv or in movies again

/I don't know if killborn's been in anything but old school, but he even sucked in that
//not relevent, but Jon's been hillarious even in bit parts in "half baked", and "The Faculty"
///why the hell are you "on" tv, but "in" a movie?
2004-10-19 05:19:42 AM  
Kilborn on TDS: funny
Stewart on TDS: funnier x 1000000
Kilborn on CBS: incredibly not funny
Anyone else on CBS: funnier x 1000000000000000000000000

(mostly I just liked 5 questions, not Kilborn)
2004-10-19 05:20:49 AM  
Let's go to the zoo and watch the monkeys do it.
The monkeys don'ta do it, they makea love!
2004-10-19 05:23:20 AM  
re: the state

they need to release a dvd of the state. I would buy it. others would too. Capitalism at work, i tells ya! The "I want to sleep with the state" contest (concept) was one of the funniest things I have ever seen on tv.

re: Craiggers, Adam Carolla et al.... Craiggers can be funny here and there... or at least he would be the last time i watched him 2 years ago... but there's many reasons i stopped watching him. Adam Carolla would be a great replacement. I too still listen to loveline, and probably will for ages.

/wishes it were 1995 for SO many different reasons
2004-10-19 05:24:05 AM  
The only reason EVER to watch the Late Late show with Kilborn is because of the insanely hot women that would always show up. It's good for commercial breaks during Conan.

For an unfunny man, he must get some high-quality trim.
2004-10-19 05:26:36 AM  
With who?
2004-10-19 05:28:15 AM  
Other candidates?

One of my least favorite State sketches that became my favorite: The Bearded Men of Space Station Eleven. For some reason, it just got funnier the more I watched it.

Best State sketches: James Dixon--Power Jedi Talent Agent, "Tacos", and the one were Kevin and Kerri are driving across country, Death Fight 5000, Prom Night, and Origami (if only for the dialogue).

Bring Tom Snyder back...

Better yet, let Tom Snyder & Howard Stern host the show together... That'd be entertaining.
2004-10-19 05:31:20 AM  
Michael Ian Black is an annoying twat. I can't even watch VH1 anymore because his stupid tired deadpan is always on I love the '20s or some crap. Not that it was watchable anyway.
2004-10-19 05:33:26 AM  
Bonnie Somerville was on last night. Yowza! They should jsut keep her on all the time
2004-10-19 05:35:40 AM  
Bring Tom Snyder back...

They did already. It didn't work.
2004-10-19 05:48:30 AM  
I guess people aren't attracted to chronic prickitis. That asshat was somewhat less entertaining then having my testicles branded.

/I didn't find that entertaining.
2004-10-19 05:50:46 AM  
Christopher Walken--The Talk Show: They could call it, "Walken & Talkin'"

Maybe Harlan Ellison could host a talk show, that'd be fun to watch every night. Orlando Jones seems like he could pull off being a talk show host.
2004-10-19 05:51:32 AM  
He needs to go back to ESPN
2004-10-19 06:06:34 AM  
almost farkin forgot.

Why do you think you would make a good childrens tv show host?

2004-10-19 06:06:49 AM  
why did Craig leave, get fired?
2004-10-19 06:20:38 AM  
Paging Vince Vaughn, Vince, you're needed back at CBS.
2004-10-19 06:21:05 AM  

you had to mention that sketch, didn't you?
Now I am going to be quoting it to no one in particular for the next few weeks.

2004-10-19 06:32:02 AM  

I get points! I tell people about the Dana Carvey Show and I get blank stares...it tanked after about 4 shows but damn it was funny. And really pushed the envelope, too. I seem to remember ABC(?) pulled the plug because the sponsors were afraid of offending middle-class America.

Best (and maybe only) bit I remember--Oliver Stone's WASHINGTON. Antonio Banderas as George Washington...as a coke fiend. Great stuff, it was.
2004-10-19 06:47:36 AM  
I went to a Kilborn show couple years back. Even got a t-shirt cause I cheered obnoxiously loud. I had never seen an entire episode of Kilborn, but he was so boring. The prep comedian was way funnier. I actually laughed at his jokes. Keifer Sutherland, just starting out with 24, some chick who did some weird thing with her arms, and a country guy i think.

We also did the Thanksgiving episode. They told us Anna Kournikova was gonna be there, they lied and it wasnt even a funny clip...
2004-10-19 07:06:29 AM  
Pouring yourself a drink on camera and talking about it's aroma/taste isn't funny.
2004-10-19 07:13:37 AM  
Kilborn quit to "persue other projects".


He quit before they fired his ass.
2004-10-19 07:20:37 AM  
Wait a sec.....was there not a "SAD" thread a while back when he said he was leaving? Whats the deal? Do we hate him or not?
2004-10-19 07:31:17 AM  
He's pretty dull as a lat night talk show host.
2004-10-19 07:32:09 AM  
"I wish someone could teach me how to tie my shoes!"

/Waits patiently with club
2004-10-19 07:32:09 AM  
I guess I'm the only one who thought he was funny. I liked his smarmy prick persona over all the other kiss ass talk show hosts.
