Did you hear that big thump yesterday afternoon? Yeah, that was jaws dropping at CBS when Late Late Show host Craig Kilborn told his bosses that he was quitting after five years to focus on a career behind the scenes. The popular chatterbox isn't expected to take his final bow for about a month, but already speculation has begun that the Eye network will try to steal Conan O'Brien when his NBC contract expires in late 2005. That, or they'll try to steal Michael Ausiello, who everyone knows will work for Diet Raspberry Snapple.
