    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    There have been quite a few over the years. I don't really watch them much anymore but I really loved Dennis Miller's talk show. He had the best bands and I like his commentary on what was going on. I think he was ahead of his time. I think a lot of what he says goes right over most people's heads.

    I wish David Letterman had taken Jonny Carson's spot. That would have been awesome! Jay Leno isn't bad but he's not good. I can't get myself to watch his show all the way through. I think, however, David Letterman should've left the air a couple of years ago. He is still funny but he (imo) has been kinda going through the motions.

    Remember Arsenio Hall? He was annoying. Jimmy Kimmel's not bad. Conan O'brien is ok.

    I used to like Arsenio a lot, he was fun. Conan is my favorite.

    Arsenio had a good show. Sad that he became something of a parody.

    If we're including past and current, then there's only one:

    Jay Leno is extremely lame in my opinion.

    Jay Leno is extremely lame in my opinion.

    Half his recurring bits seem to involve showing how stupid people are. I don't care for it at all.

    Craig Ferguson. His monologues aren't the usual "what's in the news" one liners. And bits like "Michael Caine in Space" and "This Day in History With Sean Connery" are flat out hilarious in their absurdity.

    Does the Daily Show count? If it does, that's mine.

    Leno’s writers are better than Letterman’s writers, that being said, I haven’t watched either in years.

    I'll weigh in for Ferguson. His monologue is the sharpest writing of late night. I am a long-time Letterman fan, but the show is turning into one big inside joke. Leno has one redeeming feature: "Headlines" on Monday.

    Definitely Conan. I prefer Leno to Letterman, but neither one is as good as Conan.

    Bill Maher is the only late night comedy show I can tolerate.

    The Daily Show and Conan.. although I never watch Conan. The Colbert Report is good, but it doesn't have the same polish of The Daily Show. Too many mistakes by Colbert which make for too many awkward (and not funny) moments. And the guests suck, usually, since they don't understand how satiric the show is supposed to be.

    I prefer Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, the NPR Quiz Show. But pre-exile I liked the Daily Show then Conan. Particularly the "What in the World?" and "In the Year 2000" segments... and most of all the Walker, Texas Ranger lever.
