Didn't we go through this once before already?

How long until Jimmy is ousted and Jay comes back?

I didn't like it when Jay replaced Carson but now he's an institution.

For all the criticism Leno gets, you've got to give him credit for being atop the ratings for 20 years, especially following a legend in the host's seat.

Or it just shows how stupid the viewing audience is.

And the "Finally Someone Said Something Rational" Award goes to...

From my limited perspective (having only seen Leno a few times), if you think Henny Youngman and Bob Hope were funny, you'll love Leno.

If you think Lenny Bruce or Richard Pryor were funny, Leno...not so much.

Interesting.


Quote:
In the first three months of the year, Comedy Central's "Colbert" and "The Daily Show" both topped NBC's Leno, CBS's "The Late Show With David Letterman" and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in the 18-49 demographic under Comedy Central's preferred measurement system, which excludes repeats. ("The Daily Show" scored its first winning quarter over "Tonight" a year ago.)

About time [for Leno to leave].
  1. I hope It sticks and Leno really goes away
  2. I am wondering why it takes a whole year
  3. Think this just smells like a publicty stunt to boost both of their current ratings.

1. With Fallon taking his place it will stick.
2. It takes a while because of contracts and Leno's ego.
3. Could be. NBC certainly needs some ratings.

I hope he comes back. Him and Craig Ferguson are the only two I really care for.

Can I get Arsenio Hall back?

Maybe I'm an old guy, but I liked Letterman over Leno for years but then switched. I rarely watch either, I read at night.

Jimmy Kimble is ok, Conan was good for awhile, and Jimmy Fallon looks like he just walked out of a tanning bed / salon and just got his eyebrows waxed.

I actually appreciate diversity in comedy. If you grew up in the Arsenio Hall time, with the dog pound, you know what I'm talking about.

Seth Myers has been picked to replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night.
Quote:
NEW YORK - May 12, 2013 – NBC names the versatile Emmy-winning writer/performer Seth Meyers as the new host of "Late Night" when Jimmy Fallon moves to "The Tonight Show" in 2014. Lorne Michaels will executive produce “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and Michael Shoemaker will remain with the franchise as producer. “Late Night with Seth Meyers” will originate from 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.
