I read in the newspaper today that Craig Kilborn will be wrapping up his tenure hosting “The Late Late Show” within weeks. I guess he was looking for new and exciting ways to show the people of America just how wonderful he thinks he is.
Not that I’m ragging on him … completely, anyway. Part of the reason I watched his show was to marvel at the depths of his self-absorption. He really is very impressed with every single thing he says and does. I’m surprised that he took the step in recent years of having an actual announcer (he had previously done it himself), because that meant that he got to hear the sound of his own voice JUST that much less.
I wonder what’s up next for him? He certainly can’t go back to “The Daily Show,” as Jon Stewart is comfortably snuggled into that job.
I’ll have to catch an episode before he calls it quits. No doubt he is giving himself a moving tribute.
