Where’s Leno?

Conan

It’s been a week of Conan O’Brien on the Tonight Show. I’ve seen like five minutes, when he brought out the year 3000 bit (seemed the same as when he was on later!), so I won’t opine on his first week, but hey, the hope is someone else has seen Conan’s first week and wants to offer up a thought.

If I had to guess, I would have found it funnier than Leno. So, what do you think of Conan’s first Tonight Show week?

    Stepping in a pile of fresh dog shit barefoot is funnier than Jay Leno.

    And Conan is flipping hilarious. His adjusting to life in LA skits are pure gold.

    I Tivo’d the first one but I didn’t watch it yet. The listing in the Tivo menu is not particularly funny.

    I liked Jay Leno, but only watched occasionally and even then usually only the monologue. I watched Conan’s first night and was mildly amused. Then I forgot to watch the rest of the week.

    Truthfully I always thought Letterman was better, and the best late night talk show host by far is Craig Ferguson.

    O’Brien is okay. I used to watch his show occasionally. But he looks so intense sometimes. Not a good therapy if you want a good night sleep after seeing his face.

    This week, being his first, was a bit awkward. I’m sure he’ll ease in to it and will do just fine.

    Conan is FUNNY. Leno is NOT FUNNY. Never was. Letterman is still the king.

    Order of preference: Ferguson, Letterman, Leno, O’Brien, Fallon. I still miss Johnny Carson!

    People like Ferguson? Didn’t see that coming.

    I love you, Bill! We are late night twinsies.

    I loved Fallon on SNL, but haven’t been too impressed by him with his own show.

    Conan is just as unfunny an hour earlier now. I’ve started watching Letterman again. Dave’s Top Ten had Kim Jong Il’s replacement named – Conan Jomg Il. Even Dave thinks it’s a joke with Conan. I know Jay was good but the show was really supposed to be Dave’s. Time to break out the dvd’s.

    I thought Conan and Dave liked each other?

    Any Kimmel fans? Haven’t watched that show in a while, watched a bit of the pre-NBA Finals game episode tonight and thought his Denzel interview was funny. If I had to watch one of the shows consistently, would probably be Kimmel

    They absolutely do. Conan wouldn’t be where he is today if not for Dave and he knows it. On his final eppy of Late Night, he thanked Dave.

    Is anyone planning on watching Leno when his show comes back at 10 every night? Personally I think its going to be the end of the 10:00 drama slot. If Leno does well, we are going to end up with talk shows on every network.

    It will probably be on here at 9 and no, I won’t watch it.

    I think it might do well in the 10pm slot, but I think it will mainly only take away from audiences of people who watch the news channels at 9pm and 10pm. I don’t think people looking for drama at 10pm will tune in to Leno in any kind of huge numbers.
