Reader Picks ’08: The Late Night Beard Battle
Not three full days into the new year, yet it is already time to vote on a pressing topic! David Letterman, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, Jay Leno and Craig Ferguson returned to live television last night, although the WGA strike is not over. Dave and Craig had writers; Jay, Jimmy and Conan did not. Dave and Conan had beards; Jay, Jimmy and Craig did not, though it should probably be noted that Craig wore and later removed a phony beard as part of his opening skit. (Refer to our rudimentary yet informative venn diagram of beard and writer sets after the jump if you are confused.)
Let us not discuss monologues, guests, WGA strike rules, writing or the painful lack thereof but focus instead on the most important aspect of last night’s television selections: magnificently groomed ’80s beards. Who had the best?
As previously mentioned, informative talk show host venn diagram follows the jump.
