Stephen Colbert Gets Craig Kilborned

Does anyone here remember Craig Kilborn? That’s right, you don’t remember him.

He left The Daily Show to get a late night talk show on CBS. He was funny for a niche audience on basic cable, but his act didn’t appeal to the wider audience CBS required. He struggled for a couple years on CBS, his show was cancelled, and nobody ever heard from him again.

Colbert is probably going to have the same problem.

It’s a shame, I liked his show. The censors at CBS are probably going to require him to be less extreme and more mainstream, which means he won’t be funny anymore.

    • I don’t watch Jimmy Fallon. I DVR The Daily Show and The Colbert Report and watch it during the day, skipping the commercials. (Magnavox 515h DVR, much better than a Tivo, no monthly subscription)

      • Can you come back on IRC we miss you and I have my own server now and it is TOR only! You can find me on the big network where we met. If you even remember me!
