Except for the monologue

.... the main purpose for these shows is for actors to plug their new movies.

The host, of corse, must be skilled in saving guests who cannot put together a sentence without a script.

Otherwise, any of them will do.

I have, on sleepless nights occasionally seen the fellow on ABC late night. I thought he was different and funny.

All network is geared toward the 18-49 year-olds.

None of them hold a candle to Johnny Carson

Late night talk just hasn't been the same since he left the Tonight Show in 1992. I used to think Leno was funny before he got that show; ever since then I think he's played it way too safe and broad. I'm never up late enough to see them much these days; if I hear of a guest I really want to see I'll record the show and just watch that part.

Craig Ferguson is really funny, and he can also hit serious subjects well. He did one monologue that you can see on YouTube, in which he talks about his alcoholism and why people shouldn't be making fun of Britney Spears. It was quite a confessional, as if he was speaking at a meeting. Pretty funny in parts too.

Carson was very good.
