Many popular current late-night host are coming up for contract renewals by 2015. Comedy Central host Jon Stewart’s deal expires next year, and Stephen Colbert’s agreement expires this year. CBS’ Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson is also up this year. Also on cable: TBS late-night host Conan O’Brien and Bravo’s Andy Cohen are through next year. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel? Yup, 2015.
Oh, and a certain former Tonight Show host has a lot of free time on his hands, as well.
