Making a satire out of the entire Late Night Show concept Scotsman Craig Ferguson hosts his show with a robot skeleton and a "horse" as his sidekicks. The show features the stereotypical parts of a Late Show, but all in their own, raw way.

The Colin Quinn show provided a glimpse into what is wrong with political correctness, making fun of other people is funny.
Now before we all start getting up in arms about how horrible racism is, let me explain, the show generally opened with Colin's monologue talking about topical issues of the day.
Following that came the most hilarious round table discussion. Several comedians of different ethnicities would sit around on a stoop like set and would talk about different topics as Colin would call them out, moderate, and add his own spin.
Sadly this type of show would probably be more welcomed in the 1970's than the new millennium.
After the 1st episode I knew that NBC was not going to keep it on the air, it was insulting, thought inspiring and hilariously funny, and quite honestly I think if more shows had the same subject manner dealt with honesty and humor, I do not think race relations would be so turbulent as they are today.
After 3 very fresh and inventive episodes it was sadly canceled.
