Leno won't be back.  Jimmy's too good and they handled this transition a lot better...

Fallon's comedy bits have been growing on me the last few years. Seeing as how I only really watch late night show clips the day after, nothing really changes. Fergueson, Conana, Fallon and the occasional Kimmel.

/This was a great bit

I remember that.
Was awesome bit.
To bad it was the best we ever got from Conan.

Let's hope Leno is done for good now.  Maybe a gig on FoxNews or something.  I'm looking forward to Conan taking over The Late Show when Dave retires.

FARK, I hate that smarmy, back stabbing sonz a beotch Jay Leno.  DIAF.  Today.

NBC will probably expand the Today Show by another hour for Leno to host.

Jimmy Fallon is not funny. I have always hated him ever since he ruined every skit he was ever in on SNL. Then he gets a talk show, I watched it once. Awful. Now he gets the Tonight show? Blah. I love Conan, and the show on TBS aint bad, it still has that low budget charm of Late Night. Leno has always been an after thought ever since Kimmel got his show, and Letterman has been stale for years.  But I would watch The Letterman with Oprah episode 100000 times before I even think about touching the Fallon shiat show.

Oh Oh, I almost forgot...He ruined Band of Brothers too.

I don't know when you watched Fallon, but he has improved a lot since he started.

/you know, Carson used to break up when a skit wasn't going right too.

'Jimmy, Jay's not going away'

Never was Conan more prescient

Fallon is terrible

NBC will give Leno a 10pm show to give Fallon a good lead in, then Fallons ratings will fall and NBC will ask Leno to come back and do his retirement home act for the blue hair crowd again. Then in 5 years or so, Leno will tell Craig Ferguson he will get the tonight show. There is sort of a pattern here. Eventually Arsenio will be on deck. Then the fat kid who cameos in every movie will eventually be promised the show.

Oh how wrong you are
 
2014-01-29 11:32:21 PM  
why was he running uptown, and past the Guggenheim?

Jimmy Fallon? Really? The guy looks like a fetus and is about as interesting.

Also, damn Conan, you got old man hands.

Yes, it was Leno's fault that Conan stunk up the ratings so bad that NBC had to come crawling back to Jay to save their sorry asses.

Did you guys know the average age of TV watchers is getting pretty high? I don't think it's too likely the networks will "shake things up" again.

Yeah, do yourself a favor and spend five minutes reading even just the wikipedia entry on that situation. Leno is exactly what killed Conan.

I was expecting that to be the Old Time Baseball skit, which stands as my favourite.
