So who will replace Letterman?

He really needs to step down too...he looks awful for his age. Sometimes I fear he will die on stage. You'd think he'd want to move to Montana full time and raise his son.

I love Dave, but the writing for his show has been godawful for years.

Conan should

Agree. Conan.

Leno & Lauer

That'll show them.

Seacrest. After Dark.

Does Seacrest know what to do after dark?

Conan blows. He has always sucked. Never ever could see the appeal in this unfunny jerk.

Some say Howard Stern wants it.

It's going to be Craig Ferguson. And he'll be great.

Has he been at the helm of his show as long as Johnny Carson was at the Tonight Show?

by Anonymousreply 1304/04/2013

NO way!!! I love Letterman and I hope he keeps on doing this for at least another 10-15 years. No one ever criticized the insufferable Regis Philbin, so why fuck with Letterman. No one can do what he does. If you've seen him with Shia LeBoeuf, Madonna, Joaquin Pheonix, Paris Hilton, etc. and how deft he is, watch him deal with the out of control Joan Rivers, etc. the guy is horribly underestimated. I think he's a genius.

Yes, he has. Johnny went from '62 to '92. Letterman started with a morning show in '82 and quickly got his late night NBC gig. He went to CBS in '92 when Carson retired (and he was pissed because he did't get Carson's spot, Leno did.)

So Letterman has been on the air for 30 years now, too.

I agree with R14. He's still the best and smartest interviewer on late night TV.

I know of not ONE person who confesses to watch "Conan", but his rabid aged fanbois seem to be everywhere and constantly insist he replace this person or that person.

Fucking Conan O'Brien has been around for decades. He's old, stale, tiresome and must resort to poorly executed gorilla style marketing on college campuses to make it appear as though he's got a 'hip', young audience.

I have nothing personal against the man but have never understood his appeal. Those who keep insisting he take over this show or that show, etc. need to get a clue. He's had his peak, just like Leno and Letterman, and no number of late 30s fanboys are going to be able to make him happen again.

Sorry R12, but Kathy is good as a guest. As she has shown us on her own show, a good talk show host... SHE IS NOT.

Letterman stays. He's got good years left in him.

Oh, dear.

David Letterman will stick around, just so he'll have the satisfaction of having survived Jay Leno.

by Anonymousreply 2304/04/2013

Dave was a genius, but he's been phoning it in for at least 5 years now. It's time for someone fresher.

by Anonymousreply 2404/04/2013

I'd love Amy Sedaris and Dave loves Amy Sedaris, but I doubt she'd ever do it (or do a show with such a traditional format)

I'm rooting for a big London Lee comeback!

Not everyone has no life like you, R27, and has the luxury of spending 24/7 here or remembering every fucking thread that's started here.

I wish Bernie Mac were still here. I'd have loved to see him in this format. He was really crossing over when he died.

by Anonymousreply 2904/04/2013

I'm not ready for Letterman to go, maybe when he is 67? Why the hell would his kid want to be raised in Montana...sounds terrible to me. Montana is for vacation, not for real life.

by Anonymousreply 3004/04/2013

Yeah, I'm still thinking Conan.

by Anonymousreply 3104/05/2013

I wonder if a late-night show is something Ellen would consider. She's made a fortune with her daytime show, and it would be interesting to see if she could translate to an evening show.

(But I still think Ferguson's the heir apparent to Dave, and Dave will leave when Leno is gone for real).
