Craig Kilborn on ESPN, Women in Late Night, and His Comeback

With FOX’s trial run on The Kilborn File winding down, we could all do better to spend a little more time getting to know Kilby. Fingers crossed that FOX decides to renew the show.

// We Are All Witnesses, Sadly//

"Only in America could we keep inventing reality TV that fantastically outshames the previous low mark. A prime-time event? To announce a free-agent signing? And don’t point out that some proceeds go to charity. You want to give to charity, quietly write a check. Don’t get a network to do it for you so it gets to pump its shows and you get to shower yourself in international coverage – while calling it philanthropy."

In Defense of: Craig Kilborn

Kilborn is smug, sarcastic, probably likes the sounds of his voice too much and isn’t always fully engaged with the people he is interviewing. I have to point out here that I think these are positive traits, not shortcomings. He’s doing his own thing, and I appreciate that.

 Kilborn is not another cookie-cutter host, one who is going to come out and do a monologue, then go to a commercial, then come back and do a sketch, then interview two celebrities and then have a band play a song. Kilborn’s talk shows are talk shows as sort of performance art. Kilborn controls everything and the camera is almost always on him. This would be disastrous with most hosts (and most hosts wouldn’t even welcome it), but Kilborn is in complete control.
