Who would replace Letterman?

Watching the late night changes at NBC and catching up on The Late Show, I'm wondering who CBS might be grooming to replace David Letterman should he decide to retire?

Would Craig Ferguson be the automatic replacement?

I hope not. I have a really hard time with his accent unless the TV is turned up rather loud. My wife and I already argue about how loud the TV should be in the bedroom.

As I mentioned in another thread, I doubt Ferguson would even want the 11:30 slot. I know he likes his current gig, but I don't know if he is in it for the long term.

I somehow think that when Letterman retires, it's going to go to someone completely unexpected (i.e. none of the current late night-ers). I don't get a good idea who that might be though.

I do not say this very often, but Ferguson feels to me like a creepy lecher whenever he is talking to attractive women.

Comedian Jimmy Pardo.

Because it seems like having the name "Jimmy" is now a requirement for having an 11:30 talk show on a broadcast network.

Jerry Seinfeld, but Louie CK would be a long shot.

Didn't you see that episode?

And Louis is outside the Ed Sullivan Theater cursing at Letterman.

I thought Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter made a good case for Colbert:

In the Leno/Fallon thread, someone said that Ferguson has it guaranteed in his contract that he will succeed Dave. Anyone know if that's true?

Prince of Wales clause.

But there is no such thing as "guaranteed" because they can always just pay him off.

You have got to be kidding. The smarmy git's ego has no bounds. (Not to mention, his version of the Late Late Show was virtually un-watchable.)

Looks like Letterman isn't going anywhere for a while.
He reupped through 2015.

Nope.

http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.co...s-on-cbs/?_r=0

Ferguson's contracts with CBS have included what amounts to a “Prince of Wales” clause, giving Mr. Ferguson the right to inherit the late-night show in the 11:35 p.m. time period should Mr. Letterman decide to leave.

I grew up watching Kilbourn host SportsCenter, so I was probably predisposed to liking him, but I enjoyed the daily show and his Late Late Show purely because of his (seemingly) limitless ego. Though I agree that put me in the very small minority.

He called his last week of shows his "Countdown to Obscurity" so I'm pretty sure the cocky arrogant attitude was at least partially an act.

And who didn't like 5 Questions?

Wow - you must have searched to the far flung edges of the internet to come up with that info. Well done!

David Letterman is unparalleled. Johnny Carson knew what he was doing when he hand-picked him to succeed him. (NBC misinterpreted and put Leno in - one of the worst moves ever made in network television.) <---just my very strong opinion.

The only person near Dave's quality is Jon Stewart, but I thought I read somewhere Jon has no intention of leaving his current top dog position at Comedy Network (although money is money, of course.) I would go anywhere if that was the only way I could watch The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
