    Craig is the best interviewer of the bunch but his show wasn't for everyone.

    Butthurt that he didn't get Letterman's job. But that bonus should ease the pain.

    He was only given this job after a bunch of other people declined it, right? He was a little too different to last so long. Even having a late night host with an accent is still a tough sell.

    I liked Craig's show because it didn't feel so forced and scripted like the other shows. Letterman, Leno, Conan, it was all just questions that they ok'd before the show and then they make it seem like it's all off the cuff and the host would bring up some stupid question that nobody would ever ask about in natural conversation.

    Most times Craig was just sitting down to talk with his guests rather than a strict interview to promote a movie or whatever.

    I heard about a week ago Chelsey Lately was taking over his spot.

    I also heard he there was a clause in his contract paying him between $5-10 million if he didn't replace Letterman.

    I also wouldn't mind seeing Feherty get a nightly show. His show on Golf Channel is awesome

    I'd love to see the Sklar Brothers host a late night show in this time slot.

    I said that to my husband a few weeks ago when we saw a guy coming out of Hy-Vee wearing them. So glad that only a few people get that joke, or we might have had an altercation. :wink:

    Which is a shame. Graham Norton puts all the current American late night hosts to shame. Better interviews, skits, improvisation. just a higher tier of quality.

    His interviews could just be hilarious. Especially with some of the actresses.

    Eh....I listen to their podcast (which is a good listen) and let's just say that interviewing is not their strong suit. They'd have to be given a lot of leeway to really change up the format to work.

    His interviews with Alice Eve are some of my favorites of his.
