jj325: My favorite Bryan Cranston before Walter White clipLink
browntimmy: He's not stupid, maybe the reason he doesn't live off any of his Tonight Show money is because he's partially ashamed of that type of comedian he has to portray.
freetomato: jj325: My favorite Bryan Cranston before Walter White clipLinkI had forgotten how great Malcolm in the Middle was. Must revisit the re-runs.And is it just me, or is Bryan looking pretty handsome there on the couch?

mechgreg: StrikitRich: strangeguitar: Why is Leno still on?Please...tell me why?He's blackmailing the network execs with compromising photos?NBC has unfortunately put themselves in the position where Leno doesn't even need to bother blackmailing them.They know from the last time they tried to get rid of him, that if they do, ABC will be setting up for The Jay Leno show, to run before Kimmel, pretty much the next day. And since people (even though they are old) watch Leno, it will hurt them in the ratings. Plus I think his contract says that when he is off, substitute hosts aren't allowed, so it is pretty much impossible to try replacement hosts out or groom someone to take his place. Plus considering how Conan's tonight show couldn't really bring in the older viewers (and lost a ton of viewers overall), imagine the trainwreck if Jimmy Fallon took over the tonight show? So really they have no one to take his place, and if they get rid of him he will go somewhere else and take most of his viewers, so what exactly is NBC supposed to do at this point.
ThatBillmanGuy: I just read Late Night Wars after being recommended to after our last Leno thread. I now think he's less of a douche than before, but not by much. And NBC doesn't know what the hell it is doing at all. And they really farked Conan over from the beginning. And he took it hard and a little too drama queen-y, but it's understandable and it worked out for him in the end at TBS. And really, the only ones who got screwed totally in the end were Jeff Zucker and all those dumbasses at NBC who apparently don't work there anymore after all that. It also gave me some respect for Jimmy Kimmel.
carrion_luggage: Anybody else notice the Preparation H was blue?
Allansfirebird: I think Zucker holds 90% of the blame for the entire situation. His desperate 5-year plan to bench Leno so that they could hold on to Conan was shoddy (to say the least). I think it might've been a better career move for Conan to move over to Fox when they offered in 2004 and 2001.
Walt_Jizzney: The single best NON Walter White Cranston role...ever...Bryan Cranston in Babylon 5
praymantis: Jay Leno's has higher ratings than Letterman or Kimmel. Stop your whining and deal with it. Why does does FARK continue to greenlight these articles. Leno kicks their asses in all categories not just old people.
theorellior: carrion_luggage: Anybody else notice the Preparation H was blue?I think ad people use blue fluid for products relating to the human body because very few organic secretions are blue.
tetzy: Why are you still riffing on this shiat? The final Tonight Show with Conan aired January 22, 2010.Think: you're still crying like a biatch over nonsense that hasn't been newsworthy for years. Worse, it didn't effect your life in any way whatsoever.Grow up.
KrispyKritter: Leno, Letterman & Conan may suck but no are worse than no talent Kimmel.
