ELN Throwback: With All Due Respect James Corden, We Brought Back Boy Bands First

"We all love James Corden.  He's an adorably charming talk show host who has won over our hearts with multiple karaoke sessions in cars.  But yesterday he proudly proclaimed that he wanted to make the return of boy bands a priority on his talk show when he brought out the Backstreet Boys to perform on his stage.  

Which would be great if we hadn't of started the trend first."

"Jimmy Kimmel is kind of an acquired taste.  On the one hand, he's one of the few hosts to hold Hollywood's feet to the fire, often times acting like the snarky everyman who has some gripes about the way the show normally goes (not in the audience, we're giving the award to someone else!).  And unlike the slew of his late night contemporaries, Kimmel does not seem obsessed with appearing likable at every second of the telecasst -- which can sometimes make his act gentle roast act appear a little fearless."

Background: This was the third full length show for the cast and crew.  It was during this installment of our show that I really felt we were starting to hit our stride.  Our first show was magic, the second had some kinks, but many would later call this one the very best show we ever did.

"However, the most specific of testimonial love was saved for Wilmore himself, as Stewart told Wilmore that "a wise man once told him that cancellation does not equal failure," reminding the host that comedic legacies have a way of outliving a show's expiration date.

A series of words that really seemed to touch Wilmore."
