    Incredible .... they spoke about cannibalism for a full three minutes.

    A must watch, even funnier than he normally is.

    Damnit... can a moddy put this on AG?

    I liked the part where Colbert had to look at a card that had the name of Paul McCartney's first big band on it.

    Colbert is consistently funny. Every night. I pray to God that show is NEVER cancelled.

    The Daily Show and Colbert Report will never be canceled. The only way either leaves is if Stewart winds up on one of the networks after Letterman retires. I still think both will be on Comedy Central 10 years from now.

    Paul didn't really seem in on the joke, did he?

    McCartney is exceptional with the deadpan.

    I think he was in tune.

    If memory serves, Letterman wanted Jon Stewart to do the Late, Late Show after Tom Snyder was axed. But Letterman's clout with CBS was a little low at the time and CBS insisted on Craig Kilbourn. Comedy Central picked Stewart to replace Kilbourn on TDS and the rest is history.

    Has Kilborn done anything since leaving CBS?

    Awesome cameo in "Old School." That's about all I can think of.

    I think his smarmy attitude kind of played itself out. Can he do anything else?

    He the tall Spade. And Spade does smarm much better.

    I don't watch Colbert often, but I was at the gym on the treadmill and just left it on after TDS went off. It was a couple nights ago when he was talking to the French tightrope walker, and that guy gave it to Colbert as good as Colbert gave it. It was fun to watch him kind of give in and laugh and lose himself for a second.
