Great piece, LadyKen, and pretty much right on the money.  Though when I think of early game show hosts, I don't think of "funnymen" so much as wry, bowtie-sporting sophisticates who smoked one hell of a lot of Winstons.  It's still a long way from those guys to Bert Convy's luxuriant 'fro, though, so your point still stands.

Anyway, glad to see the wedding prep madness hasn't dampened your sense of humor.

Nobody thought The Daily Show would do well once Craig Kilborn left and Jon Stewart took over.  But it took off.
And no one thought The Late, Late Show would survive his leaving...and yet Craig Feruguson is doing great.

Sounds like a clear case of the Patrick Ewing Theory.

Craig Ferguson's an over-rated ball hog with slow feet who's useless outside the key?

I might have missed it: has there been a single new player to join the NBA in that last ten years who ISN'T a woefully under-talented gangster-rapper wannabe?

Considering his work on Whose Line Is It Anyway I think Drew Carrey is the best choice they could have possibly made.
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

Many thanks for the kind words, Steve-O.  What would be completely awesome was if Drew came out from behind the curtain puffing on a Winston.   I would DVR the show every single day, and all the congressional inquiries on CSPAN to follow.

"Drew Carey, America's bowling partner."  :clap: as always, LadyK.

Maybe one of those Greek or Croat players teams import when they need somebody to, y'know, play defense once in a while?

Thanks, Sharky! :)  We Ohio bowlers have to stick together.  I'm still working on forgiving Drew his general Clevelandness.
