Did the Tonigh Show Just Spam Us?

Not sure what the proper term is for in-show advertisement, but both
the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the show that comes after (the old
Conan show, since last week with the guy from Saturday Night Live),
had long segments about Twitter. Coincidence?Is the recession so bad
that comics are including ads in their jokes?

Mercifully, the Scotish-American guy on CBS only complains about his
low budget. Although there was a potential plug for the Scrable iPhone
app, but I think I'm just being paranoid.

By the way, this blog does not include any paid for plugs, honest. The
only advertisement on this blog is clearly identified as such and
generated by the good, albeit cheap, folks at Google.

Speaking of Google, since I am using an iPhone to write this, I was
able to Google Late Late show to figure out the name of the host:
Craig Ferguson.

Jimmy Fallon, the new Conan on NBC's Late Night makes CBS's Craig
Ferguson sound like Picasso. Actually, I don't know what Picasso
sounded like but I'm sure he didn't shake as much as Fallon. Or maybe
he did.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that Craig Furgusson is high art
compared to Jimmy Fallon. Furgusson has especially mastered the
monolog. Talks straight into the camera, even taps it, and in 7
minutes tells us a great timeless story. Furgusson's monolog is worth
recording if not staying up for. Fallon? Not so much.

CBS's Late Late show with Craig Furgusson is to NBC's Late Night with
Jimmy Fallon what iPhone is to Blackberry: Infinitly superior.
