    We talked about Daily Show alumni in a previous thread (Samantha Bee). I just had a sighting of Craig Kilborn on my TV. He was on screen and narrating a Kraft Mac-N-Cheese advertisement.

    He was the first guy that CBS took from the "Daily Show" to use as a late night host, right after Letterman to replace Tom Snyder. Based on various articles, behind the scenes at the "Daily Show" were not a fun time while Craig was there.

    Craig started out as a late-night SportsCenter co-host back in the early 90's.

    Craig would suddenly leave the "Late Late Show" as his five year contract ended without renewing, even though CBS stated that they wanted him back. He would come back with a syndicated talk show called "The Craig Kilborn Experiment". It was cancelled after a few weeks.

    How is this Howard related, Craig was once on Howard's show and classic Howard put Craig's girlfriend (Victoria's Secret model Amber Smith) on the phone. What was a boring interview became interesting as Craig would not say that Amber was his girlfriend. Amber Smith was on Dr. Drew's Sober House a few years ago.

    Ted Williams no longer the voice of Kraft Mac-N-Cheese?
    Anyway, as I recall in that interview, Wigs couldn't understand why he isn't still
    in show biz. It was alien to him, but Craig doesn't have that show biz grind. Which is funny, since he would love Wigs schedule now.

    Kilborn was on Bill Simmons podcast a few months ago and I couldn't last 15 minutes, and looking at a Reddit thread about the podcast it seems like nobody else could either. He just rambled on and on, digression into digression. His schtick isn't an act; he's just an insufferable bore.

    See how long you last:

    I heard that interview and it was a train wreck. I'm guessing he was off his ADD medication or suffers from some sort of autism or mental illness.

    I heard he's an obnoxious wierdo in real life. Viacom had to settle a sexual harassment lawsuit because of him and the guy dawgshed interviewed recently said he was a huge condescending jerk

    I thought his show was 10x funnier and better than any of the network shows currently on
