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:

 

Robert

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.

Exactly.   I mean why would late night want to hear Robert talk about Sprint LTE all the time :P

    • Mine is still working fine here in Raleigh.   There were some outages related to the snow storm.    I have seen it take a couple of days to recover from storms.   It is not among the highest priority services.  
    • Looks like my MB gold at my office was finally decommissioned sometime last week. It was working the previous week and I was out of town last week. I came in today and it was powered down. I unplugged it and plugged it back in but it just keeps looping through trying to establish a connection. Looks like it's time to add it to our ewaste pile.
    • I did spot some NRCA in Crown Heights last weekend. Sadly because I'm using an iPhone I can't see the exact carrier combo but it did report that it was seeing 2 NR carriers. At first I thought it was a glitch or some weird stale data because my phone was still reporting NSA 5G and the primary NR carrier was the 80MHz n41 carrier but reading Sascha's article it's quite possible that my phone was using B2+B66 +n41+n41.  — — — — — On another note, it looks like someone found n5+n77+B2+B66 on Verizon:   
    • This entire FAA argument is stupid with no evidence at all that there is an issue with C-band.  You may be right that there is some conspiracy nut involved. The guard-band between what aircraft altimeters use and cellular C-band is 220MHz.  If any safety critical aircraft altimeter is reading signals from 220MHz away from the frequencies it is designed to use, that is a very broken safety critical device and should have been replaced it long ago.  Everything in an aircraft is designed and certified for precision and is checked regularly.  The aircraft is not designated as airworthy for instrument flight if the systems in it are not certified to be precise and in good working order.  If an altimeter is so broken that it is off by more than 220MHz from the frequencies it is designed to use, it could just as easily be off by 1GHz or more which would likely cause it to fall into other frequencies that are also already in use. 
    • https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive-we-found-t-mobiles-secret-weapon-against-c-band Seems like he's seeing: B2+B66 +n41+n41 n71+n41 Not that it really matters, I suppose:
