Who's your pick to replace Letterman?

I would love Colbert or Stewart... but another part of me realizes if they got it their witty political comedy would go away/to waste (for the most part)...

According to Mashable Colbert is at the top of CBS' wish list and he's interested http://mashable.com/2014/04/04/stephen-colbert-replace-david-letterman-late-night/ His Comedy Central contract expires at the end of this year so the timing works out for him. With Tonight Show in New York now, I would think CBS would want to move the show to L.A. post-Letterman, but with Colbert it would likely stay in NY.

 

Personally, I think Joel McHale would be good doing a show like that.

I would kinda prefer to see Conan switch over.  For one, adding yet another face to the crowd at this point just seems silly to me, and for another, it would in many ways make Conan a true spiritual successor to Dave, in that NBC pretty much gave both of them the finger, and it would make it such that they both gave NBC the finger right back through the same major network.

Me.

AJ!!!!!

 

I am flattered by the inclusion, but I am more of a behind the scenes, head writer type -- much like I am here at S4GRU.  I liken myself to Jim Downey, the highly intellectual, Ivy League educated, longtime head writer for Saturday Night Live.  He only rarely stepped in front of the camera.

 

 

However, if Robert gets the Letterman job -- as he appears to be stumping for -- I am pretty sure I know whom he will hire as head writer after all this time at S4GRU.  Yeah, it will be Jim Downey.

 

:P

You either will be head writer, or at least a frequent guest.  Perhaps a guest host?  :fingers:

He could easily serve a role much like Josh Elliot on GMA prior to his NBC defection, with his Youtube 'Play of the Day'.

Well that interview was a waste of my time. But the trip to NYC was nice.

    • Got the update last night. Broke SCP notifications .... so yay.
    • Curious as to how SCP works with it regarding NSA, particularly in markets with n41 BW=100 and second channel.
    • Downloading now. ****DVK3, 2.3 GB in size. 
    • T-Mobile eNB 879491/879493/879494 on the keep site map is located at 40.77536940167816, -73.92011957697034. Sprint eNB 5762 is now T-Mobile eNB 306271. Located at 40.582064139078206, -74.16175767702059 Weirdly both of the new Sprint conversions that have been found in Staten Island (eNB 306271 and eNB 326459) were sites I visited earlier this summer but neither of them were broadcasting the keep PLMN at the time. In fact, Sprint eNB 5762 was completely offline when I visited. I suspected both sites were keep sites based on their location relative to neighboring T-Mobile sites so I was surprised when I didn't spot 312-250 coming from them. Glad to see T-Mobile still kept them. Also T-Mobile isn't done with non-conversion new builds in the city. T-Mobile eNB 894075 is a brand new site added this summer on Rockefeller University's campus in Manhattan. It gives me hope for neighborhoods like Red Hook and Williamsburg that desperately need sites along the waterfront.
