    Rather surprising…….I wonder if Brian Williams should be nervous. Wasn’t Jon looked to host one of the news shows recently?

    Well this sucks. Hopefully his directing career takes off.

    Late night has really shifted these last few years.

    You will be missed, Jon Stewart!

    So, do the Emmys award the end of Stewart or the beginning of Colbert on CBS?

    Is it possible that SNL could finally be dropped this year

    Locks
    Colbert
    Daily Show
    Fallon
     

    If Letterman gets a farewell hug, and the HBO campaign machine gets Oliver and Mahr in, SNL will be left on the sideline. Wishful thinking though.

    Is it too early to say that I hope Craig Ferguson gets the spot. He would be the ideal choice.

    Given that it’s the 40th anniversary, I get the feeling Mahr will be dropped before SNL

    Very sad to see Stewart leaving. I always preffered his show to the Colbert report, and I guess I’ll just have to be happy with Last Week Tonight. Even though it’s only once a week, it is a decent replacement. Stewart is getting that farewell Emmy. Obviously not because he hasn’t been rewarded enough, but because I’m sure his departure will be extremely well-publicized.

    There is hardly any chances Saturday Night Live gets cut just like that. The respect and longevity of the show (along with Lorne’s deep pockets) will ensure that NBC keeps it on the air until Lorne feels it is time to go. I see that only being after at least the 50th anniversary

    To Stewart – meh. I never really liked him too much. He did a lot of satirical shows, but I never quite made time for his show in the way I did for Craig Ferguson and Stephen Colbert. 

    I wouldn’t like Craig to replace him. Craig is a god of late night, but what made him so special was how non-conformist he was to the whole political humor thing. Also, he needs an HBO show where he can cuss to his Celtic heart’s sweet little content.

    If they are looking for a new show in that timeslot, I’d suggest No You Shut Up, hosted by the brilliant Paul F. Tompkins, or perhaps they can create something for one of the SNL alumni like Bill Hader (if his HBO show never comes to fruition) or Jason Sudeikis.

    If they are going to keep The Daily Show on the air with a new host, I’d suggest Samantha Bee. She checks all the boxes – quirky, funny, intelligent and she has been on the show for a while now as a correspondant. She would also bridge that terrible gap of not having a female late night talk show host. If not her, then John Hodgman or Lewis Black, whose “Back to Black” segments were the best part of the show, and the only reason I watched occassionally.

    Placeholder and ThemeParks4Life are merely discussing the end of Saturday Night Live as a variety series nominee at the Emmys, not the end of Saturday Night Live itself, Macbeth.

    SNL’s 40th anniversary special will likely become a lock for a Variety Special nomination.

     

    AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Jane Fonda (TNT)

    Kennedy Center Honors (CBS)

    Mel Brooks Live at the Geffen (HBO)

    Robin Williams Remembered – A Pioneers of Television Special (PBS)

    Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special (NBC)

    Stevie Wonder: Songs in the Key of Life – An All-Star GRAMMY Salute (CBS)
