Very few names are as revered in the world of comedy as David Steinberg. But when you've amassed the resume that he has over the last 45 years in television, it's hard to find many people to compare him to.
I'll try not to write too much about Conan, since he's pretty much dominated this spot the last 2 weeks, but I'd be remiss if I didn't talk about his final Tonight Show just a little bit. Even if you're not a fan of his style of writing and performing, you have to admit (okay, maybe not everyone, but most do) that his final show was a spectacular hour of television.
Well folks, it looks like we're gearing up for the final week ever of The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. Launched less than 8 months ago on June 1, 2009 (check out our interview with Conan staffer Aaron Bleyaert posted that day), the show will most likely air its last original episode with Conan O'Brien as host this Friday, January 22, 2010.
Yes, we follow late night television a lot here on ShowbizMonkeys.com.
Boy oh boy, do we have things to talk about! This past week has brought late night TV into the top headlines, as NBC is looking to shake things up once again by moving Jay Leno back into his old post-news slot, potentially screwing over Conan O'Brien in the process.
Aren't you excited? A totally trivial list of the top 3 shows/hosts in 5 different categories, picking from a genre of no more than a dozen total shows.
Not only are almost all the late night shows back from the holiday hiatus tonight, but the start of the new year also means ShowbizMonkeys.com is looking back at both the 00s and 2009 itself. We begin that look back tonight, as I present our 2009 Late Night Awards!!!!!
Okay, so they're not that exciting... but here they are anyway.
I don't have very much time to write a lot before posting this week's late night talk shows listings.
It's time for some great late night television!
Hey everybody, it's Thanksgiving week (well, in the U.S. anyway -- us Canucks ate our turkey and pumpkin pie over a month ago). Surprisingly, though, the entire late night schedule ISN'T repeats this week. Some shows took the whole week off, while other shows are airing 3 or 4 days of new episodes, and a couple are even airing a whole week of new shows.
