    No doubt that will be part of his legacy, but he’ll be more remembered for having the second longest tenure as permanent host…1992-2014…almost 22 years. (Agreeing that in 2014 Leno’s contract will not be renewed.)

  • kscottk11

    “Letterman booked LeBron James for next Tuesday. On the good old days, that would be a Tonight Show exclusive.”

    Diana,

    LeBron James, from Miami, the East Coast. David Letterman, New York City, the East Coast.

    Jay Leno, Burbank CA, the West Coast.

    Location, Location, Location.

    Your as annoying as Mario is from the opposite side.

    Diana, you never give up!

    You’re as annoying as Mario is from the opposite side.

  • GARebelman

    Looks like we need Dr. Phil in here. I’ve yet to figure out why some have a chronic desire to bash somebody they supposedly hate or don’t even watch.

  • Chris

    Ah…good old Dr. Phil. Every time I see him on TV offering marriage counseling to a couple I shake my head…knowing that he and his present wife are the result of a tawdry affair. And that he doesn’t hold a license to practice…yet morons come out of the blue to seek his counsel.

    An amazing quack.

  • Mark

    He may be a quack, but I’d bet he’d get better ratings than anybody in late night right now.

  • Diana Santiago

    Posting the same comment twice is really annoying in my dictionary…

    “Location, location, location” said the fox looking at the grapes. ;)

  • kscottk11

    I don’t know why I got into this “petty” back and fourth with someone who “rips” a particular host because it doesn’t affect me one way or another.

    But following Diana’s posts on this site, she never stops ripping Leno.

    No more personal attacks by me. And I won’t be seeking Dr. Phil.

  • Mario

    Chris, look what you typed psycho! You said Leno has almost zero facebook followers! That’s a total LIE!

    Jason, Bill Carter called Leno a late night legend in an interview and you’re delusional if you think anything else! Conan is the pathetic loser who couldn’t even get a network job so now he’s languishing at a cable network of sitcom re- runs! LMAO!

    Leno is the one who’ll be remembered as a late night legend while Conan will be known as a loser and crybaby!

  • Brad

    With Conan, “he’s languishing at a cable network of sitcom re- runs!”.

    Mario has a point. There is nothing very desirable about TBS except that they are part of Time Warner; however, TBS is moving up in the ratings while Leno’s network, NBC, keeps moving down.

  • Not a Troll

    Calling the Simpsons a dumbass cartoon might actually be worse than calling Letterman a pedophile.

    I’ll just chalk up Mario as someone trollin’ for kicks

  • Diana Santiago

    I have attacked Jay Leno’s character based on the evidence available to all of us. He’s an admitted liar, he’s a crybaby and he wants to appear like he’s “one of us” while hoarding money and cars. On his comedy style, I’ve never liked him, but that’s why there are 31 flavors, to each its own. The fact is (as demonstrated by this website) is that the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien demo numbers in 2009-10 were superior to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno after 2010. Conan O’Brien dominates in social media, even surpassing Jimmy Fallon in amount of Twitter followers. Conan has 1.88 million likes on Facebook vs. 437K for Jay.

    Conan O’Brien might not be your flavor of comedy, but he’s not certainly a moron. He’s a very smart, award-winner writer and performer. His fans are incredibly passionate about him. He has a talented team of people, and his show has launched the careers of several successful actors and writers (to name a few: Amy Poehler, Jack McBrayer, John Krasinski, Mike Birbiglia, Angela Kinsey, Ellie Kemper, Louis CK…) That’s how you leave a legacy.

    I made a genuine question about Jay Leno writers a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to know if they performed as stand-up comedians also. I even googled if I could find someone semi-famous that has written for Jay Leno. Is Jay Leno afraid to let his people shine?

    If you feel that you should keep on insulting me, bring it on. I speak with facts. If you don’t like my opinion on Conan, blame the Constitution of the USA.

  • Aaron

    Mario, you moron, Chris didn’t say Leno had almost 0 Facebook followers. He said he had 100k followers while Conan has 1.8 million.

  • Aaron

    In Mario’s world, Jay Leno is a comedic genius while something like the Simpsons is a “dumbass cartoon”. The Simpsons may not be your cup of tea but it’s insane to dismiss it as only a stupid cartoon. It’s had an impact on television forever and has changed the face of pop culture. If you want an example of how influential it’s been on our world, Homer’s catchphrase “d’oh” has been adopted into the English language and accepted by the Oxford Dictionary.

    The Simpsons is responsible for influencing shows that do not use a laugh track. It pioneered the use of sight gags in television. Ricky Gervais even cites at as an influence on the original Office series, which did not use a laugh track.

    I’m sure this will all just pass through Mario’s empty mind, though. Because in his world, no matter what, Leno is a comedic genius and something like the Simpsons is just a stupid cartoon.

  • André

    It baffles me that you guys still reply to Mario’s crazy-man ramblings. Really guys, if you don’t feed him he’ll go away.

  • Mark

    Would Mario agree that The Simpsons is more legendary, more relevant, and will be remembered much longer than The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

    Here’s a simple question for him to answer,

    In 2056, if there is a channel highlighting classic television from our age, which would be on…The Simpsons or Jay Leno?

    And, honestly, will Leno be remembered for anything.

    And The Simpsons has received 27 Emmy Awards.

    Jay Leno has 26 less than that…one Emmy…17 years ago.

    And, yes, Emmys are a good barometer though he’ll shriek about it.

  • Chris

    Not sure how Leno could be a comedic genius if he has never created anything original. Is that how we define genius now…somebody who has built their success on the theft of other’s hard work and material?

  • Danny

    Mario is just Gary Middleton off of his meds.

  • Brad

    When can we all come together and admit Carson Daly is the best… just kidding.

  • Mike

    I loved Letterman’s comment that when asked, nobody at NBC knew who Carson Daly was. Funny line.
