My vote? Daniel Tosh. That kid is a diamond in the rough.
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Interesting. Who are they saying?

The "Louie" eps where he was being prepped by Garry Marshall to replace Leno, shadowed by Seinfeld, were uproarious.

Never happen.

Ferguson was the worst thing about The Drew Carey Show; in every scene he was in it was like all the air was let out of the baloon. He killed the funny every time.

Someone hasn't watched Craigyferg do his thing on his own show. His character on Drew Carey was about as far from his actual personality as you can get.

"Belligerent and numerous."

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

That someone is not me. And my opinion is he's just as unfunny there. Take the amount of funny in Tom Snyder (original host of that time slot), which admittedly is not all that much, and subtract the amount of funny in Craig Kilborn (next host in that time slot) and you still have a lot more funny.

really? I had not heard that anything was definite. I like Ferguson but I am not sure hw he wuld d at an earlier hour.
I never cared for all the signatures that insult posters with other points of view.

Right. We don't even know when or whether Dave is even thinking about leaving. And unlike NBC, CBS does not telegraph when folks are being pushed out <cough> Leno <cough> Ann Curry <cough> Leno again.

Since I posted I've been trying to think of someone less funny than Ferguson. Josh Gad comes to mind, but really..........................I'll let you know if I ever think of anyone.
