Colbert Report – 2009.04.06

colbert_100x100Johnny Carson didn’t die. He just changed his name to Tom Brokaw.

OK, maybe I’m exaggerating, but it would be interesting to see Brokaw take over The Tonight Show once he moves into the next phase of his career. He’s always shown that sly charm that would work very well in that setting. I know some of that is what’s been required due to falling ratings in network news. But he takes to it like a natural.

And you might wonder why I’m not suggesting Mr. Colbert for the job insted. I like him right where he is for now. And when Stephen does move on from this show I hope he will change to a new character. I’m sure it’s fun now, but it would be sad to spend an entire career in a role like this, even if it is a wonderfully well crafted and nuanced one.
