Though D.L. Hughley wasn't chosen to replace Craig ("How's my hair?") Kilborn as host of CBS' Late Late Show, he made enough of an impression to ink a pilot deal for his own show on Comedy Central. Hughley's varied résumé ranges from network TV (The Hughleys) to Hollywood (Original Kings of Comedy) to the talk-show circuit, where he traded barbs with conservative columnist Andrew Sullivan on Real Time with Bill Maher: "I believe in Jesus too. I just don't believe he only lives in red states." Amen to that.
