    So – shocker, I know – Stewart can’t be a successor to Letterman.

  • Mario

    Leno’s deal would shame the others…he’ll be on The Tonight Show for life. Networks don’t replace kings.

  • Danny

    Thoughts on this analysis?

    http://blogs.westword.com/latestword/2012/07/aurora_theater_shooting_craig_ferguson_jay_leno_videos.php

    I happened to be in the hospital watching both, and think this spot on. I could not believe Leno’s approach…

  • Aaron

    Haha. Mario, you are so delusional. At this point I cannot tell if you’re just a troll or someone really naive who makes other Leno fans look bad.

  • Mario

    Danny…Jay was the only host on that night who showed anything resembling class.

  • Diana Santiago

    Jimmy Fallon will be Jay’s lead-in tonight…

  • Aaron

    I wonder how Jimmy being the lead-in will affect Jay Leno’s ratings tonight.

  • Keanon

    Love Craig F. but the show hasn’t gotten really stale. Every night on Jimmy F.’s show I can expect something new or different like a new game played with the guest or a funny sketch. I hope Late Late show with Craig F. improves, I really really like him, but I just don’t watch every episode like I used to.

  • Chris

    Super Mario’s been doin some more ‘shrooms….

  • Brad

    Happen to be watching Leno lately and have been enjoying it. Very curious how Jimmy will do in the ratings and what boost it will bring to Leno. I can only think it will good and man do I hope so.

    I’m with Keanon comments 100%!!!

  • Brad

    Chris, Letterman and Ferguson haven’t been renewed to surpass Leno, only to match him. CBS and NBC are trying to figure each other out, trying to decide what to do depending on who does what first. Does CBS let Letterman stay up against Fallon? He won last time when up against Conan (even though it wasn’t a fair fight). Does NBC let Leno stay on if Ferguson gets moved forward? (Similar logic). Or… do they both just leave it the way it is (which I doubt) or they both have totally new hosts come in (which is what I will do).

  • Aaron

    Great show for Conan tonight. “Local News Roundup” is a skit that previously gave the feeling that the team just wanted to rush through the show, but tonight it felt like a comedy bit that Conan and Andy were actually having fun with. The Voledemort vs. Mary Poppins vs. Tiny Tim fight was also pretty funny.

  • Chris

    How wasn’t it a fair fight between Dave and Conan? You thinking the so-called sex scandal?

    It made for great television on CBS and NBC. Dave was back to putting his A game on, and Conan was trying to do some neat stuff and restore the luster of The Tonight Show, which had 17 years of mold and mildew covering it.

  • Chris

    And the Fallon special helps show why he needs to be the flagship face at NBC at 11:30…now.

  • Brad

    Well Conan didn’t get all the hottest stars in LA. Those would go to Leno at Primetime. Letterman would always get the hottest stars over in NYC. So Best of NY vs 2nd Best in LA, that is not a fair fight.

    I think Letterman’s sex scandal helped him create buzz. It got me interested in him. Plus, once he got that buzz and had a new competitor, he was on fire!

  • Chris

    That makes sense…indeed many of us recognized right away that when they announced Leno’s 10PM show it took the sails right away out of Conan’s sails. Plugging a film in primetime potentially could get more eyeballs than late night.

  • Brad

    And it did. If I recall correctly. 1.2 Leno. 1.0 Letterman. 0.9 Conan.

  • Chris

    But then Leno started sinking, and took Conan down the drain with him.

  • Brad

    Well all of those ratings I listed were towards the end of Leno’s Primetime run. Leno would still beat Letterman and the res of thwm while Conan would only beat Kimmel, Fallon, and Ferguson.

  • Brad

    Fallon’s Primetime Music Special got a 1.6 in the ratings! The best out of all the networks at 10pm. 4th best in all of the primetime broadcasts. Congrats Fallon!
