i’m glad Jay still has a show. at least more people would tune in because it’s earlier at night. it might not be a godd NIGHT SHOW time slot, but it’s a good ratings time slot.

*good and yay! i’m first (sorry never been first before)

I’m so glad that Jay Leno is not permanently leaving. I really like his show and think its the best one out of all of them. I like his sense of humour and his guests. I also like his interviews with his guests. ANd I really hate Conan and Kimmels shows because they act like such stupid idiots.

I’m glad he isn’t completely abandoning stand-up. I’d be quite sad if he dropped off the face of the earth.

I also plan on watching it; it’s even at a reasonable time for people to watch not just on weekends. Besides, I doubt I’ll ever tune into the Tonight Show with Conan… unless of course he has a good guest. Otherwise, no chance.

Jared, I think you mean announce, not announced.
Yay, hopefully this means a continuation of headlines. Those are my favorite. He’s a hunk!

Yes, I will watch Jay – but never Conan. Well, unless Gerry Butler is a guest.

I’ll cry of happiness if this is true!

what kind of show?

I love Jay Leno! Kevin Eubanks better stay with him too!

I like Leno. It’s not that I hate Letterman(which sometimes seems to be a requirement), but I just think he has better interaction with the guests. Oh and I really hate Letterman’s band leader. Ferguson is the better of the late late shows, but Conan isn’t bad.

eeh i prefer Conan.

I’ve never really liked Conan but I really like Jimmy and Jay. That was a bad move on NBC’s part for Conan. They’ll regret that, Johnny Carson wouldn’t agree with this.

I watch Craig Fergerson I think that is his name he comes on after David Letterman, and he will make you laugh.

YESSSS! this is so ironic because i JUST commented today on NBC keeping Leno over Conan! I Love Leno!

Jay Leno ROCKS! I was hoping he would stick around on tv in some form and my wish came true.

I’m not a fan of Leno, I just can’t handle how he always goes for the gay joke. I tried watching here or there – cause I do like Jaywalking and if a celeb I like is on but he just has to go for a gay joke and it’s offensive. I’m not saying he’s homophobic but I remember he was talking to Julianne Moore on time and she was talking about her son and she mentioned he liked watching her in her gowns and he made some cheap crack about oh that’s a shame.

anyways- weird to think that all other shows now will be before 9pm ct on NBC now

I will not be watching Conan. And I still don’t understand why NBC gave the job to Conan. May be Jay is staying as a standby in case Conan tanked and he can “step in”.

I don’t watch Leno now. I’m not about to start after May 29th.

what’s wrong with you people? he’s retiring so of course conan and jimmy is gonna move up. jay is good at being fake. he can’t entertain a guest for more than a minute. conan is like colbert…just purely smart and hilarious! he’s not afraid to be himself.

JIM CARREY as jay leno is the best there is, folks!!

Conan sucks, seriously. He has horrible hair and the beginning of the show, with those stupid squares, is enough to give me epilepsy! I LOVE JAY LENO! He cannot be replaced by Conan. I think Fallon should go in place of Conan, and just keep Leno altogether!

thx

Both Leno and Conan are good. Each in their own way. Conan is just better at playing the crowd.
