    Kinda looks like Mr. Indiana can't come through with the goods, though he's able to chuck objects* at other's claims.

    *Such as barbs with sharp ends, or soft brown stuff.

    Once again, people are not reading what they post links to. Ferguson already has a deal. I've never been wrong before and I'm not about to start now. You kiddos have fun debating your own silly falsehoods.

    The only deal that Ferguson has is the one that I and others have clearly linked to ... renewal of contract to match Dave's contract. When Dave's contract ends Craig's contract ends.

    You have provided absolutely no proof that Craig has a contract beyond Dave's last day. You have provided absolutely no proof that Craig will be taking over for Dave. And as for your claim that you have never been wrong ... well this thread isn't about you so I won't waste time proving that beyond the proof already offered.

    Craig is not the replacement for Dave. I wish he was ... and if the facts ever change to support Craig replacing Dave I will be happy. But at this point in time there is no truth in the claim that Craig is the replacement for Dave.

    When it comes to Letterman retiring, I kinda liked this speculation:
    Personally, I'm not sure that Letterman will retire before Les Moonves, but they're close to the same age.

    If you actually took the time to read the articles at the links posted you'd see that he does NOT want Letterman's spot at all. Oh but wait, if you read then you'd have to admit you're wrong, something you could never do.

    I enjoy Craig's on air comments about his live appearances ... warning people that he actually swears and that in concert the little flags don't appear in front of his mouth and the words are not replaced.

    He does the show as if he wouldn't mind losing it ... not worried about the network or advancing his position. He is the true anti-host. Constant bleeped words, profane puppets and baudy humor. Not what one would expect at 11:35 but fine for the after show. And while Conan and others walk on the wild side a little it seems Craig is all in.

    Craig says and does what he wants and if the network doesn't like it the network can bleep him -and they do. And it all works well.

    I agree with you. I find myself laughing at him and his show more than at any of the other late night shows. I also like his sidekick Geoff. I don't know what it is about that skeleton, but I think he's better than any of the other late show sidekicks.

    I like Craig Ferguson, and I have watched his show from time to time... but I also agree his style works better in the later hours where he can get away more with being his wacky self.

    First there was an imaginary girlfriend.

    Now an imaginary source.

    Lots of imagination in Indiana.

    I debated about posting this interview, but it is one example of why I think John Stewart would be the best replacement for Letterman:

    I saw that Tuesday and thought about posting it too. :)

    I'm not sure his current show is "safe" for broadcast TV ... and I would not want to see Stewart / Colbert changed from their current shows to "safe". It would be nice to see Stewart get more exposure and a longer show but there are nights where 22 minutes is enough.

    I'm glad you did -- I've not seen that before. IMO, Georgia Carlin was a national treasure.

    Carlin was brilliant, insightful, droll, but I'd stop there! Miss his wit.

    Step 2: Seth Meyers gets 'Late Night' host gig
    http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/12/showbiz/seth-meyers-late-night/index.html

    (CNN) -- "Saturday Night Live" writer-performer Seth Meyers will take over NBC's "Late Night" show next year when current host Jimmy Fallon moves to "The Tonight Show," NBC announced Sunday.

    SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels will also be the executive producer of "Late Night with Seth Meyers." He was also named executive producer of "The Tonight Show" earlier this year when the network announced Fallon would replace Jay Leno.

    No premiere date has been announced, but NBC has said Leno's exit and Fallon's debut will coincide with the Winter Olympics coverage in 2014.
