KILBY IS STAYING AT CBS
Craig Kilborn will continue to work late. Kilborn, host of “The Late, Late Show” on CBS, has signed a contract extension that will keep him on the air for at least two more years, the network said Monday.
He has been host since March 1999, and the network is up 25 percent in viewers at his 12:35 a.m. time slot since then.
The former ESPN sports anchor is best known for his “5 Questions” feature, posing quiz questions to his celebrity guests.
“Craig has done everything we expected since taking over `The Late Late Show,'” said CBS President Leslie Moonves. “He has attracted more young viewers to the time period and his show has proved to be a terrific companion to David Letterman’s `Late Show.'”
