Watching The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon right now. Something I very rarely did with Jay Leno (who I just can not stand). Anyway, love the opening gag where Jimmy looks into the camera and says "to the one that thought I would never get the Tonight Show, you owe me a hundred bucks". Naturally you think he is talking to a childhood friend since this line has been used countless times. So, out walks Robert De Niro with $100 and drops it on Jimmy's desk. It doesn't end there. It's a parade of some big heavy hitters from the likes of Seth Rogen, Lady Gaga, Tina Fey, Lindsay Lohan, Mike Tyson and more. Funny stuff. Having Stephen Colbert come out last and dumping a $100 in pennies was.....perfect.

The History of Hip Hop Dance Moves with Jimmy and Will Smith was very funny. But I think the best moment so far was U2 on the top of the GE Building performing with a Drum Line (which sounded damn cool). But it was the scene of the band and the fans rocking out with the New York Skyline in the background as the sun was setting that made it spectacular to watch.

I saw a couple clips, looked pretty awesome (I didn't see the Aerosmith bit, I can understand why that wouldn't be online).  I couldn't help but think, though, how small the set looked.  And just now I read this interesting article on Vulture, Late-Night Wars Now Just a Battle For Survival.  I've been divorced from TV for a while now (at least three years and maybe even five), but I had no idea that the situation was this bad.

Just now getting around to checking out Late Night with Seth Meyers debut via On Demand. Watching the opening monoluge at the moment and it's.....HORRIBLE! Joke after joke dropping like lead balloons. I will stick around for Amy Poehler's spot. Beyond that, I don't think I will waste more of my time on this.

Yeah, I bailed after Amy's interview. I like Seth, but he needs a lot of work. The show needs work. I just didn't like anything about what I did see (30 minutes total).

Seth did well to invite these two on his show...


Not sure which I like more, the idea of Sir Ian as the host or Sir Patrick as the bandleader (he looked like he was having so much fun with that).

So, I just got finished watching The Jimmy Kimmel Show from last night. It started off great with Guillermo Rodriguez on the Red Carpet, basically getting drunk with stars by getting them to do shots with him. By the end, he was smashed. It was a very funny bit. But the big get for this episode was Rob Ford's guest spot. I'm not a fan of the guy. How can I be? I'm not from Canada. But he is a fascinating character to watch, given all of his oddball moments. So, I was looking forward to the interview as I was curious to see what he would say.

Having just watched it, I'm embarrassed in that Jimmy chose to basically make fun of him on the air for 3 full segments. It was brutal. He really couldn't do anything to defend himself and it was sad that he just sat there and took it. It was akin to watching a Ringmaster (Kimmel) making a monkey (Ford) jump through hoops. It's not till the very end of the 3rd segment that resembles anything like an "interview" and that only lasted 20 seconds. Wasted opportunity and the end results made Jimmy look really bad in my eyes.

The Colbert Report with Jimmy Carter (Tue, Mar 25, 2014)




What a great, fun interview. Both Stephen and Jimmy clearly were having fun doing this. I'm glad they kept it light and didn't take things to seriously as would have been the case on FOX, CNN, etc....

David Letterman Announces His Retirement from the Late Show

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9eYkpgeeI8

An end of an institution. The late night talkshow circuit is going to feel very weird without Letterman on. But I get why it's time for him to hang it up though.

IGN News : Colbert Announced as David Letterman's Replacement

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se9zL9BXDpw

Not at all surprised by the news that Colbert is being tapped as Letterman's replacement. I somewhat against this though. I love The Colbert Report and its format and really want to see it continue with him at the helm. Whatever happens, I will tune in wherever Colbert goes.

Now it looks like Craig Ferguson is going to be replaced when his contract is up.  But I could TOTALLY see him replacing Colbert's slot on Comedy Central.  Craig does some of my favourite interviews, he's very inventive with little money, and I think a shorter show (half hour instead of a full hour) could really refine what he's got.  PLUS he's super-patriotic, so you've got that base covered, you know he can talk and opine about the news and current events in an interesting way.  I would hope Comedy Central considers that, I would hate to see CraigyFerg leave TV.

I've only watched a handful of Ferguson's show, but in each case, I have enjoyed his style a lot. He's just on way too late. It's on the rare occasion I would stumble across his show. Having him on CC in a better time slot would do him a great service and the people would definitely benefit from it.

The Daily Show: Stephen Colbert Says Goodbye

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r3lEqB5vnw&list=PLp2e7UfInEgmB-5r4rtQOEsq-H-mNmQhk&index=33

I love how he has to go on The Daily Show and "put together his own video package". Haha.
