    Favorites: Leno, Connan, NBC, Letterman..

    A poll.....More American media farces.. Who says the media moguls are genius's. ?. Who is your favorite Leno, Connan, Letterman... Fox news sounds like it might have offered Connan a gig, hopefully competing with Late Night, NBC.?
    Your opinions. Who are the good guys. Was Connan a flop, is Leno brillant.? Who will you watch in the future, Letterman, Leno, Connan ( on Fox?.) or ABC's Niteline.?
    Your opinion of NBC management. Was not Leno moved because of his ratings.. ?. Whose funnier, Leno or Connan O'Brian... Or Letterman.?

    My favorite will always be Steve Allen repeats. He had little fear of Media management or the FCC. Allen represented the best in independent TV.. He gave FCC the finger and said what he wanted. And unlike today's personalities, he was funny..
    Don't you think after all those years, Leno got a little stale.. ?. I'll be watching either Connan out of spite towards NBC or else Letterman.
    I don't care about Letterman's sex life. That is his business. But, I do like his top 10 countdown.. That is about as funny as TV gets...

    Leno is half the host Carson was. The other guys even less. I don't bother watching anymore.

    There are a few Carson skits on Youtube, including the Copper Clapper Caper.

    I don't even watch tv anymore, but I always preferred Conan to Leno, by FAR. And I liked Letterman much better than Leno. I've only laughed at Leno maybe twice, and that was just a mild chuckle. For me it goes:

    1. Conan
    2. Letterman
    .
    .
    .
    .
    .100. Leno

    Who watches any of it?

    I've always thought Leno was a pompous poseur. I put him last and the bicycle rider first, but it will have zero impact on my TV viewing habits.

    Didn't vote, because it doesn't matter to me. At that time of night, I'm either prowling the interwebz, asleep, or otherwise engaged with the wife. But if I had to pick one...Arsenio.

    Tis True. Connan is a bike rider.?... People like Arsenio Hall, Creigh Ferguson. Are they not a different time slot.?
    I have sympathies for those who boycott and put the TV in the trash.. If not for satellite, or premium movies, we likely would.

    I like Leno and have seen him a couple of times at the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach - in fact we're going to see him on the 24th. That being said, I HATE his tv show and won't watch it mostly because of the interaction between Leno and the band leader. The band leader needs to shut the ^&*^& up.
