W. Kamau Bell
Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers. What do all these names have in common? They're all currently, or are going to be, late-night talk show hosts.

Late-night hosts and guests honored Joan Rivers Thursday, each paying tribute to the pioneering comedian in their own way.

Craig Ferguson, the outgoing host of The Late Late Show, is in final talks with Tribune Media for a new syndicated talk show, Variety reports.
James Corden is set to take over as host of The Late Late Show, TheWrap reports.
In April, Craig Ferguson announced he was stepping down as host after 10 years. Ferguson will end his run in Dec., when his contract with CBS expires.

In an interview with Howard Stern this week, Neil Patrick Harris revealed that CBS CEO Leslie Moonves and Entertainment President Nina Tassler also approached him about the gig.
CBS' late-night landscape is going to look a lot different very soon. Just weeks after the network announced that Stephen Colbert would be replacing David Letterman as host of The Late Show, Craig Ferguson revealed that he will step down as host of The Late Late Show...
