Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Late-Night TV Hosts of All Time

See who managed to top David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Jimmy Fallon

10. Magic Johnson

Whoever voted for Magic Johnson must have been screwing around. He's one of the greatest players in the history of the NBA, but his three-month stint as the host of The Magic Hour wasn't exactly a career highlight. It's hardly his fault: The man simply had no background in comedy. It would be like putting David Letterman on the Cleveland Cavaliers and expecting him to compete. That said, the show did give Howard Stern some amazing material to mock over the radio. On July 2nd, 1998, Stern actually appeared on what surely stands out at The Magic Hour's greatest episode. It's the sort of thing that YouTube was invented to preserve.
