The End of an Era

Well, I just finished watching the final episode of The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn. It was actually quite sad. From 1999 to 2004 Craig Kilborn graced televisions nightly with his own unique take on the late night talk show phenomenon. I know that a lot of people don't like Craiggers, but for me, his show was something special. I loved Craig's arrogance, his confidence, his goofy self-assured charm. I liked how he bucked the age-old late night traditions. On his show you'd find no band, a limited monologue, and a unique set. Also, who can forget such great elements such as "5 Questions", "Yambo" and "In The News" (a hold over from Craig's days on The Daily Show; yes, we have Craig to thank for the greatness that is The Daily Show).

Here's to you Craig. Cheers! I hope we see you in something again real soon.

P.S. To anyone from CBS, if you need someone to take over hosting duties, I'm free.
