Demetri Martin explains the Viacom/Google/YouTube controversy - VIDEO

Demetri MartinThe Boston Phoenix makes an interesting suggestion on one of their blogs: maybe NBC should give the Late Night slot to Demetri Martin in 2009 when Conan O'Brien takes over for Jay Leno. Hmmm...

In this Daily Show clip, Martin explains the whole copyright controversy involving Viacom, Google, and YouTube. It's a great clip, with Martin asking at one point if viewers are watching him right now on YouTube (yes, it's a YouTube clip). He even freezes his body and says "buffering." Funny stuff. Both videos after the jump (YouTube version and Comedy Central's, just in case...)

Everything aside, I am failing to see the issue with having that clip up on youtube when it's already available free online.

Martin, as much as I adore and appreciate him, would be abandoned in a late-night slot.

YES YES YES! I agree, give him the job. I want to see him put Carson's head on a stick. Carson's real head. On a larger and much sharper stick.

Demetri is one of the few comics I like. Id love to see him have a late night show.
