    Good call but as post above describes. That was an entirely different show.

    Heroes was the same show.

            Well, I'm going to miss Jon Stewart of course but I did check out Trevor Noah's debut and I thought he was fantastic.

                  I watched about 10 minutes of the Muppets tonight. That was enough. They'll never match the original.

                    I watched most of the episode tonight, missed last week's show. It's not much of what I was hoping to see, but I did like the bit with Fozzie and Jay Leno, and the bit where Kermit unveiled the new billboard.

                        Deliberately avoided that show last season, but I watched Quantico, and so far, it's been my favorite of the new season's shows.

                            In 20 years we're all going to look back on this era as an incredibly talent-rich time for late night shows (maybe across all genres): John Stewart, John Oliver, Colbert, Craig Ferguson, Conan. Hell, you can probably throw Letterman in there as well. All are terrific.

                            The new guys though? Yeesh. Whatshisface who took over for Ferguson, Fallon, Larry Willmore, etc. None do anything for me.

                              It's the golden age of television. Which was really improbable, given just how terrible things had progressively gotten from the 80s through the 90s. It's as if TV divided roughly into thirds starting in 2000. One third is the same mediocre pablum that's always been (sitcoms, family dramas, cop shows). One third embraced garbage and raced to the bottom of the derposphere (reality TV, irritainment, 24-7 "news") and one third stopped worrying about the average viewer and shot up into the stratosphere (late night shows, adult comedies, prestige dramas, weird stuff).

                              The average show is probably just as stupid as ever, but the top rank, which is all that matters, is better than at any time in television history.

                                A television historian was doing the morning radio talk show circuit to push his new book a while back. He seemed to be of the impression that TV networks hit their relative peaks when new networks start establishing themselves. He noted that various shows from over the years, going back to the 70's and early 80's with Hill Street Blues as one network's effort to retain viewership due to new competition, along with others, and they were all tied directly to the advent of one station or another. He called out Married... With Children and The Simpsons on Fox in the late 80's and into the early 90's, and then a whole multitude of various cable stations launching original content and their shows' quality over the past ten years. Basically, in a panic, network execs would actually take chances on shows that might not have had a known demographic, but they liked it for whatever reason. Most of these were on the new networks, but some would come along in the old stalwarts, too.
