Why Jimmy is the BEST show on late night
31 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

  • The late late show has never really had a good feel to it. Tom Snyder


was a snoozer, Kilborn finally got tired of interviewing shitty guests, and the only chance the show had was if CBS was willing to take a chance on a host like Adam Carolla or even Michael Ian Black to reach out to new viewers, which they weren't.

Craig Ferguson seems like a perfectly nice and sometimes funny guy and all, but network late night television is an American tradition and it just doesn't feel right with a Scot hosting the show.

Trust me, nowhere in the world was anyone like "hey, its' about time the boss from Drew Carey got his own show." Except in Scotland.

  • Conan's writers have been running on the same tank of gas for the


past 5 years, and it's NOT BECAUSE ANDY RICHTER LEFT! Everyone says "Man, the show was way better back when Andy Richter was on." Well, that may be true, but only because the self-defecating humor was original and for the most part, true. No one watched but the true fans back then, which put a type of 'early nirvana' veil on the show that continues to remain even though Andy's gone, and show gets great ratings, and Conan's set to take over the Leno spot.

  • I could watch Letterman perform brain surgery and still probably


laugh a couple times. That being said, Dave seems upset and sometimes downright bored with the show anymore.

The late show is circularly ready to collapse. The only way for Dave to be on his A game again is for the ratings to return, and the only way the ratings will return is when Dave is on his A game again.

Dave, its time to rest buddy. Stalkers, bypass surgery, kidnappers... You've paid your dues and its time to do as those before you did and go rest high on that mountain. We will all remember you as the second funniest guy to ever host late night, behind the late and great Johnny.

  • Leno, the thing about him is, he ah, JUST ISN'T FUNNY.




Which leaves The Jimmy Kimmel Show. Original, genuine, raw, talented. In 5 years the show will be competing heads up with Conan and will be winning. Unlike any other show in late night, you recognize as many names behind the scenes as you do in front of the curtain. Jimmy has assembled one of most talented clans of producers, writers, and regular guests that has ever collaborated on a show of its type.

Kudos Jimmy, the future is bright!
