Craig Kilborn Returns to TV (VIDEO)

Craig Kilborn Returns to TVYou know what's been missing from television? Our daily fix of Craig Kilborn. "Who?" you might be saying. Well, shame on you for not remembering, but Craig Kilborn has had an odd and checkered TV career, so you are forgiven.

Mr. Kilborn started out as the original host of 'The Daily Show,' but then left the comedy series. He was replaced by a more popular host who you might remember -- a Mr. Jon Stewart. Then, Kilborn was the host of 'The Late Late Show,' before suddenly quitting that job. (He was replaced by Craig Ferguson.) It's been an strange decade for Kilborn, as he has hosted some immensely popular programs, only to leave under odd circumstances. But those of us who recall his unique brand of sarcastic humor have never quite forgotten him.

Now, Craig is back! He has a brand new comedy show titled 'The Kilborn File' (weeknights, 7PM ET on Fox). And as one of his first guests on the series, Craig welcomes Sam Jaeger, star of 'Parenthood.'

As part of his conversation with Jaeger, Kilborn asks his patented '5 Questions' -- a set of random queries that he first introduced on 'The Daily Show.' Sam is a new father, so this is one of the questions: "Give me your go-to face for making your kid laugh."

Sam responds with a truly creepy and freaky stare that might terrify any actual child. Still, Kilborn approves. "Tough love," he says. "Tough love." Ah, Craig, we've missed you and your weirdness.

Some of us do remember Kilborn, but still don't want to see him.

Just to clarify -- the program is currently only on the Fox owned-and-operated stations, NOT on the Fox network, and from what I've read some of the stations are airing the show at different times.

I'm hoping they'll start putting episodes on the web site so that folks like me who don't have access to the show can at least watch it online.

Fox has given shows summer runs in the past, before choosing to go national, or just cancel it. Some of those shows were Wendy Williams and the short lived revival of A Current Affair.

I wouldn't expect any episodes to legally show up online unless its picked up for good, and that probably wouldn't happen until Winter or Fall 2011.
