Everyone wants to be funny on a late night show, but only a handful of comedians are known for making every talk show appearance they do a work of art. Anytime you see someone like Bill Murray or Louis C.K. on the docket for a late night interview, you know it's going to be something to watch that'll become a big YouTube hit the following day.

Will Ferrell and Adam McKay's production company Gary Sanchez is developing a new late night talk show for the USA Network, TV Guide reports, and the series sounds like it'll be pretty different from anything else on the late night dial.

Maybe it was one of his recent guests like Punk'd's Dax Shepard or MMA champ Ronda Rousey? As Huffpo accurately points out the whole thing feels a bit like Charlie Rose mixed with Kevin Pollak's Chat Show and Alec Baldwin's Here's The Thing podcast.
