I don't understand why they don't just get someone funny.

I'd rather watch The Daily Show or Colbert.

Rev.K: Mugato: Leno's audience isn't going to like this whippersnapper replacing Leno. They just recently got over Carson.

That and Fallon is a talentless hack.


It seems to me you're making that statement based off his movies and/or his time on SNL. I agree that he wasn't funny at all in those instances.

His show however is quite good and way better than Leno.

Why would they replace him? A much easier transition would be to give Leno his own show 5 days a week at 10pm. Then he stays with the network. His show will boost their 10pm ratings and save them on new show development dollars. It'll work as a great lead-in then to the nightly news and Fallon's new show. Everyone's happy and making money hand over fist.

As talk show hosts go, Fallon is the closest to Carson I've seen since Carson quit. Fallon is one of the few who doesn't make the show all about him. He does a great job of including guest in skits and doesn't try to make them look foolish for playing along.

I think Fallon is ready. I know the Tonight Show is.

bulldg4life: Of course, I just want Craig Ferguson to hurry up and get a bigger gig, too.


Craig's got a sweet gig. He's popular enough that CBS keeps him happy but no so popular that he can't be the quirky guy he is now. If he were to replace Letterman say, he would be in the same boat Conan was when he took over the Tonight Show.

CipollinaFan: I'd rather watch The Daily Show or Colbert.


THIS oh so THIS. Colbert has been on a non stop slaughter of jokes in the last 4-5 months, pretty much since the election went into the final throws. His show has been extremely hilarious and enjoyable to watch.

Just give Leno a car show on Speed and be done with it. He's not funny, but he does know and enjoy cars.


Or let Leno be the lead on an American Topgear, without help from the executives. Jay Leno's garage is great.

I know he declined, but he knows that he has to tow the line and knew he couldn't be allowed to do it right.

What a brilliant plan, it can't possibly fail.

Yet infinitely better than Leno.


A bunch of dead fish super glued to a suit is better than Leno.
