*Noye: Repeats air until the replacement show The Wilton North Report is ready to air. Show was to premiere Monday November 30, 1987,
but the opening of the show was not up to par with The Late Show opening with Arsenio Hall.

*Note: Wilton North debuted on December 11, 1987, and was a disaster on all fronts. Fox canceled it after only 21 episodes on January 8.
It started airing Late Show repeats with both Hall and Rivers on January 11, 1988, and scrambled to revive the talk show.

The Late Show with Guest Hosts (1988)

[Santa Ana Orange County Register 06Mar88]
"The Late Show" bags the reruns and returns to the air with original product on Thursday featuring a rotating coterie of stand-up comedians as the hosts. It airs weeknights at 11:30 on KTTV/11.
First up on Thursday and Friday is Boston comic Jeff Joseph.
He's followed the next week by Houston funnyman John Mulrooney.
The other change in the "Late Show" will be in the house band. Providing the sound will be Jack Mack and the Heart Attack.
Having nothing to do with this "Late Show" is Barry Sand, who developed and produced the ill-fated "The Wilton North Report".
The former producer of "Late Night with David Letterman" is said to be developing other projects for FOX.
