    Out of the hosts that everyone knows I'd have to say Conan. I have tickets to see the show in November and it seems like it can end up being an awesome night.

    Out of everything that can be remotely considered a talk show I'd have to say, no questions asked, Stephen Colbert. The mocking, sardonic tone his character was developed upon is just hilarious, even if it's not strictly a talk show.

    Edit: I screwed up the poll somehow.

    Conan & Jon Stewart on most weekdays, but by far on the weekend it's Bill Maher. I love the dude's approach.

    Conan by far. Lettermen & Leno are about as funny as cancer. As far as cable shows, Jon Stewart and Bill Maher are superb.

    Letterman has been my favorite since I was about 10.

    But in terms of who's the best, Bill Maher, definitely. His show 'Politically Incorrect' was brilliant. Colbert amuses me, but Jon Stewart just seems so much better, and more... poignant, I guess. Colbert's great at 'taking the piss', as our British friends would say.

    Do you watch Real Time With Bill Maher, Friday nights on HBO? It's 100x better than Politically Incorrect... no Carrot Top on the show :lol:

    I watch basically no late-night talk show TV, but I AM a fan of both Stewart and Colbert.

    I want one of those Stewart and Colbert In '08 t-shirts. :D

    No. No HBO for me, unfortunately. I've seen it a few times though, and you're right.
