    Leno and Kevin Eubanks had some great chemistry but yeah, it was mainly just for jokes and punch-lines during the opening monologue and some occasional bits. Conan is in a league of his own, he and Max Weinberg and then eventually the rest of the band and then eventually his entire staff from his assistant to Pierre Bernard to Jordan Schlansky to etc, etc, he really uses his whole crew and frequently too. They're some of his best bits. Fallon and the Roots do tons of bits together, from thank you notes to slow-jamming the news to family feud to etc, etc, they're a big part of his show too. Kimmel doesn't really use his band that frequently I find. It's just mainly his staffers.

    Letterman, James Corden, Craig Ferguson and Seth Meyers I don't/didn't really watch much of so I can't really comment. I guess it really does vary from show to show, but the shows that play to their band/staffer personalities really shine I think.

    Craig never had a band. He got Geoff towards the end.

    Really warming up to Colbert being out of character. He can seriously call people out on stuff without acting like a goof the whole time. Like before, he would've just let it go when Cruz doesn't answer, but here he forces a yes or no answer out of him about disagreeing with Reagan.

    This was an amazing clip. He didn't pander to Cruz or even the audience. Called them both out

    Seems to be playing it safe with Trump so far.

    Both of them seemed to be playing it very light and safe.

    A huge amount of props to Colbert for stopping his audience from booing. I'm not a fan of Cruz, but that's a huge move and will build trust with people who would be hesitant to go on the show.

    Haven't watched Trump yet. Biden show was legit. Also enjoying how the interviews with the first guests are shorter and they do a bit with them at the end.

    Yeah, it feels like he only really has the band involved when he asks a question and they all answer at once.

    I really want Tucci to be on the show soon so the matter can be discussed.

    Also, I do not have a very large TV, but really, the full size Trump picture they use is fucking terrifying when it pops up, ans I don't think it ever won't be.

    I expect sooner or later they are gonna do a Hunger Game segment and when they cut back instead of Colbert it will be Tucci.

    Didn't feel like making a new thread so I figured I'd bump this one, Trevor Noah made his debut on The Daily Show tonight. I thought it was actually pretty good. He did try to be a little too much like Jon at times (mainly when he was making funny voices) and it did feel a little forced, but when he was doing his own thing it worked really well. His style of comedy is definitely more vulgar compared to Jon's, and while that might turn some people off, I liked it.

    Like Colbert on the Late Show, it'll probably take him some time to get into his own groove, but I thought it was good for a first episode.
