Australia's Adam Hills may not be a huge name in North America, but in his native country, he's pretty much as big as anyone can get. Besides hosting ABC's highest-rated program of the last seven years, Spicks and Specks, as well as the talk show Adam Hills in Gordon Street Tonight, Adam has also released a pair of best-selling stand-up DVDs.

It's a brand new week and February's right around the corner! How are all my fellow late night talk show fans doing?
Once again, there's not too much to discuss in the late night game. Conan's ratings have been solid if not spectacular, keeping up with the cable competition of The Daily Show while a bit behind Leno and Letterman on network TV.

Hello, friends! How was your weekend? Sweet, mine too! Last week saw some great late night television, as I anticipated in this very spot, but this upcoming week sees everything but Carson Daly out of repeats.
Everyone seems to have A+ guests this week, but here are the Top 5 to check out, followed as always by the complete guest listings.

How were your holidays? Have a fun New Year's Eve? Back to the grind of work once again? Well, many of the talk show hosts are already back to work, which means new episodes for all of you!
I had a great chat over the holidays with a local comic about the history and current state of late night TV.

Christmas is only a few days away! Do you celebrate the corporate holiday? The non-corporate version? A bit of both? Neither? Yes, that's lots of questions -- maybe you'll take to the comments section and answer some of them!

Hi all! It's Monday, which means another week of late night comedy to check out. But first, how did your weekends go? Have an enjoyable Thanksgiving? Get any crazy Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals? (And hopefully not trampled in the process!)
Well, enough of the pleasantries. Let's get to the listings, shall we?
First, a quick Top 5 for you:

Unfortunately, I have no time today to talk about what went down last week in late night, nor who to check out this week. Because of the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. this Thursday, the Comedy Central shows are airing repeats all week, and the other shows have repeats either Thursday, Friday, or both.

Conan O'Brien returned! Did you watch? What did you think? Many critics thought he was "too safe" -- I guess they were expecting him to re-invent the wheel, given the freedom he had gained by owning his own show on basic cable. But Conan has always wanted to be a talk show host, and we shouldn't have expected him to do too much more than that.
