so he’s not retiring? yay!!

Jay Leno has always done stand-up and plays to the audience. That is his bread and butter. I do hope Kevin stays with him as I think they have a good chemistry. I will continue to DVR the show and do as I do now – watch them back to back. Conan can stick it! Letterman sucks! Kimmel is pure stupidity as he was on “The Man Show”.

Leno rules the roost and will continue to do so. Good move NBC!

I’m glad Leno is sticking around longer! Conan can be funny but I wonder if he will tone down the hyperactivity for the Tonight Show. Very different audience.

Yes…will definitely watch Leno…. but NOT Conan. I had actually decided I would no longer watch NBC late nights- guess I will at least be sticking around until Leno goes off….but they should really just give him back his show.

of course!!!
jay leno is so funny!!
i can’t believe NBC fired him and now they want him to have his own show at 10!! well, i least i don’t have to stay up and watch him!!

AGREE, NUMBER # 30….I will always watch Jay, but NOT Conan !!!….What a mistake this is !!!

I like Leno, but I am so surprised that people don’t like Conan. Maybe because I’m still in college and am part of his target demographics, but Conan is witty, better at improv, hilarious, and intelligent. There are certain unique edges to both Letterman and Conan, but Leno just seems like an average, easy-to-relate-to dude (which works if that’s your cup of tea). I prefer the creativity and spontaneity of Conan (Ive been to a few shows and he’s even more hilarious off-camera…visit LateNightUnderground.com for a taste of what he’s normally like, since he has to censor himself for his show..I’ll miss him when he leaves NYC). Long live Conan!

oh, but that is also to say, congrats to Leno and I will probably catch his show whenever possible :)

I love Jay and will keep on watching him only, long live headlines! =)

I will watch the new Jay Leno show. He is so funny with his guests, he deserves it.

What is going to happen to the shows that currently air on NBC at 10pm? Namely, Law and Order and L & O SVU??????

Sounds to me like it worked out for everyone.

Jay originally felt as if he was being kicked out of NBC, and thats why he began the rumors of starting a show with ABC [as he admits to having started the rumors in a recent press confrence].

Now, Conan gets what he has been wanting so long for [which I dont know if I agree with the original decision of cutting Jays Tonight contract], and Jay gets his own self titled show.

Even Jimmy is getting a benifit out of this, joining the ranks of the late elite.

CBS better think of something to keep up with NBC; Does Ferguson cut it?

I Never Liked Jay Leno and Never Will The Hell With NBC To They Screwed David Letterman In The Early 90′s When Johnny Carson The Legend Himself Promised The Tonight Show To Dave In The First Place! If I Had The Chance I’d Spit On Jay Leno!

Well NBC, your program people have blown it again. Leno has turned out to be a great follow on from Carson. He is a lot better than Carson. Carson reminded me of the snotty nosed high school kid that always wanted to get a laugh out of cutting down he classmates. He was really rude to his guests and I did not like that !

Now for Conan, watched a few minutes a few times and a big huge YUCK, he is much worse than Carson and Letterman put together. So make the decision to make your ratings even go much lower. Oh well just another BOZO move.

This seems classical from Networks, when they wanted to kill a popular show they would change the time then sure enough people would always look for the show at the old time and sure enough the moved show would die, Well guys it’s time to KILL the JAY LENO SHOW and change the time. Watch the ratings drop and bingo Leno is GONE…

I will watch Leno, then the news, then a nice movie from Netflix.

Regards
