Also there is the strong possibility CBS will stifle his creativity. The big 3 networks are famous for that.

They (the late night guys..) are all really talented. Even Ferguson is pretty good. And Seth Meyers is doing well too.

But I gotta be honest, the funniest jokes (i.e. monologue, which is really not that important anymore) is Conan's. As he is on TBS, he is allowed a little more rope in terms of getting away with stuff.

Fallon is killing right now because he knows that in this 21st century of internet, the best way to kill, is to do a funny bit (sometimes with his band, the Prez' etc.), and then stick it on You Tube, and watch it go..

Damn, it's too bad that Letterman didn't retire sooner, then Comedy Central could have given John Oliver a replacement show for the Colbert Report. Instead he is moving on to HBO.

The thing about Fallon is he's pretty terrible at actually delivering good monologues and interviewing anybody.

honestly, I think the whole late night news and late night TV is obsolete. I watch few minutes of Conan every now and then and got to sleep.

FYI, get off my lawn

Great choice. I prefer Letterman to all the late night hosts, but I liked Leno as well. Colbert will compete nicely with Fallon and Kimmel. Yes, time is flying by.

Colbert is way to edgy for main street media. Hell Comedy Central has trouble with him. Dave was to edgy as well and CBS broke David Letterman. I hope the same doesn't happen to Colbert.

IMO, you've got it backwards.....and Leno went out on top after beating Letterman 18 years straight in TV ratings.

Ya they both had their fans for a very long time.

But like someone said earlier time marches on and change is unavoidable.

Lettermen got canned because of Fallon's early success on NBC. I knew Letterman was a dead man walking as soon as Fallon tasted early success.

Letterman resigned and the writing was on the wall. They had a hard time re-signing him during the last negotiation and even then he only agreed to one more season despite the network's insistance. This isn't a ratings or force out. He's been doing this for thirty years and is ready to move on.

Did not know that. Bet it would have happened regardless.

Yes. Unless you think he plans on changing his name, I mean.
