Lame left political propaganda hour.

This guy totally recked late night comedy. Not sure why he is still on TV. He is the beginning of the sinking of CBS.

Democratic lover

He is a one sided democrat. Everything on his show just slams the Republican side of political views. I don't think he and the producer realize how many viewers he is offending and I just switch to another late night show. I've tried watching this show several times and Everytime it's one sided political bullshit on his opening act. He's a joke!!

This title has:

Too much consumerism
