I couldn't believe that decision at the time, I felt like I was missing something about Larry Wilmore - Like he was famous in things before the Daily Show or something.

On the surface (and not to give myself credit as a talent observer or anything) he appeared to be a weak correspondent who showed no signs of being able to host a show at that point in his career.

I decided to let him actually start and see if he transformed behind a desk into something different then his fairly remedial, slightly chuckle worthy Daily Show character, and he was just as he was.

Really weird choice.

Conan was in Berlin this week. The whole episode was good, but this was probably my favorite scene.

It's really incredible what James Corden has done with that show. I thought Stephen Colbert was a shoe in to be a late night heavy weight.

My only reservation was if he could transition from playing a character to playing himself. At the time I thought it was a silly reservation, but now it seems he really is struggling to engage and entertain as himself. He often just freezes when A list guests give him softball conversation set ups. It's really weird to watch after watching an uber confident actor on the Colbert Report.

Corden on the other hand has the perfect demeanor and skills for American late night TV and apparently has an all star writing and production team.

But Corden is late, late night and for whatever reason that freedom and originality doesn't translate as well to an earlier timeslot. I'm sure a lot of that is the networks fault but it could also be the added pressure.

My wife thinks I have a man crush on James Corden. She may be right. ��

Colbert’s Late Show topped Fallon’s Tonight Show in ratings for the first time

I just watched some Colbert for the first time in quite a while. His interview with DeNiro was both hilarious and kinda awkward.

Smashing the Trump stuff in the gift shop had me laughing pretty good. It was kinda hard to tell if DeNiro was into the weirdness or annoyed by it.

Colbert is pretty much just on full Trump BS watch. He hardly talks about anything else. He brings it up to almost every guest.

That said, he eviscerates Trump most of the time.

After going viral on Letterman a couple of years ago, Future Islands return on Fallon:

Hard to believe Meyers has been doing his show for three years already.

Jimmy Fallon pressured to be more political to compete with Stephen Colbert

http://www.avclub.com/article/jimmy-...ocialMarketing

I don't think political commentary is Jimmy's thing. He is fine at light comedy and musical parodies. Of all the talk shows, his must be the most popular with conservatives, in its blandness.

Late night has become really stale. Conan does a good job still but I miss the days of the masterbating bear. Clueless gamer is a good segment. I like Corden (been a fan since his time in UK comedy series Gavin and Stacey) but I don't think he is made for late night. His hosting (awards shows) is not very good either. This is where he really shines:

Regina's own Andy Shauf was on James Corden last night. I'm guessing Reggie Watts was responsible for the booking as he is a huge fan and has gushed about Andy in the past.
