which US chat shows are worth watching?

bit of a dry patch with US drama shows at the moment, so was thinking of filling my time up with some of these

I've watched Letterman & John Stewart on and off over the years but I think they're off air at the moment.

Caught some Leno last week, and didn't like it at all.

Anyone got any recommendations?

I've found you can't go wrong with Jimmy Kimmel or Craig Fergerson. Though Craig's opening can go on a bit and be very random he's the best of all them with the guests. Kimmel has the best opening chatter and random items, he's okay->good with the guests.

I have not found a US chat show I like. They seem to spend too much time on the host and not much time on the guests.

Don't you watch The Colbert Report, BigH??

I was a massive Conan fan when he was on CNBC but he's off-air until September

Incidently. If anyone one wants to watch these chat shows you don't have to go illegal. Jimmy Kimmel and Craig Ferguson are uploaded to youtube, all official like.

The complete previous night's show is there and broken up into pieces, so if you want to watch the guest bits, you can very easily skip the rest. I have them in google reader and you just get last nights show delivered every morning
