He should still be doing this
10 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Later" is the best thing Bob Costas ever did and it's a shame he's not still doing it.

"Later" is the only interview show I've ever seen in which the guest is asked probing, insightful questions. Numerous times while watching "Later" I stood in awe of Costas for asking a brilliant question. I even enjoyed the interviews of the people I didn't care much about (such as Shelley Fabares) because Costas was so well prepared and so good at what he did.

I don't bother with Letterman, Leno, Rosie or Regis and Kelli because their interviews are 5-10 minutes long, superficial, formulaic, undisguised plugs for a movie or a book.

Bob Costas may enjoy doing sports play-by-play more than he did interviewing actors, writers, athletes, et. al. on "Later", but he's one of many as the former and one of a kind as the latter.

In my opinion, Costas is wasting his career in play-by-play and should get back to in-depth interviews such as he did on "Later".
