I can't stand Leno and never have. Letterman is still king of late night although his shows aren't nearly as good as they used to be (I really miss the good ol days where he would go out on the town and make fun of people). Anyway I agree that Conan would have to change a little bit when he takes over the 11:30 spot but it wont be anything drastic. Be interesting. All I know is its 5 more years that I wont be watching anything on NBC from 11:30 - 12:30. :)

All talk show hosts chill as time goes on. When's the last time you saw Letterman throw a bunch of watermellons off a 5 story building? His show is totally lame for innovative stuff now, but Dave is still Dave and the show rolls on.

 

NBC will just fish around until they find someone new and edgy to fill Conan's old time slot. That's what they did to find him in the first place.

 

I'm sure Conan will be fine on the Tonight Show, though the humor will change.

Not watermellons, but he is still throwing stuff off of the Ed Sullivan Theatre now and then. I think the last one I saw was 100,000 golf balls or something like that...it was cool.

I guess that depends on your taste, I like the "Pat and Kenny read Oprah Transcripts" -- it's freaking hilarious. I also like the one writer who comes out to impersonate various stars or public figures...he's great. I happened to watch last night when they sent Bif Henderson out onto NY streets with a Tuba player, they ran around blasting the tuba in people's faces, it wasn't genius, but it was pretty entertaining.

I actually remember watching the Tonight Show when Leno introduced who was going to be the new host of Late Night! I remember thinking, "Who is this guy!?" Now he's my favorite late night host by far.

 

While I can't wait to see Conan take over the Tonight Show, I do think his material won't be as good since they will point him in a more mainstream direction.

 

I loved Letterman when he hosted Late Night. When he made the move to CBS, I gradually started to watch the show less.

 

I'm just hoping Conan will keep as much of his old self as he can.
