After asking "Whatever happened to Craig Kilborn?" in a post that's become the #1 most viewed on this blog, I finally succeeded in tracking down Kilby's representatives so I could ask them for a statement on what the former "Late Late Show" and "Daily Show" host is up to these days. Here's the news, and it's not looking good for fans hoping for a comeback.
When Craig Kilborn gracefully exited late night he referred to it as "early retirement" and he wasn't bluffing. Mr. Kilborn spends his days restoring his 1927 Spanish home in the hills, listening to Miles Davis, and drinking moderately priced red wine. "Is $70 a bottle expensive?" asked Craig. "I've kinda lost touch."
