They've ranged from death and the undertaking business in Six Feet Under to the underbelly of the 21st-century inner city in The Wire, through the seismic cultural changes that took place in the 60s in Mad Men and now, the toughest topic »

Despite the humor takes his Irish heritage seriously 2 Jimmy Fallon. Creating a new niche for himself as the next king of late night on NBC. Watch out Leno, he'll have you pensioned off in no time. His Robert Pattinson take-off is hilarious 3. Conan O'Brien. Where will the Great Big Red One end up? Everyone thinks Fox and he'll start his show 30 minutes before Leno. One other reason for Jay to retire 4. Bill Maher. Still the great one with a fresh show these days on HBO. Needs Republicans in power to show his sharpest wit and wisdom 5.Denis Leary.
