I like Craig Ferguson because when he calls the audience a "naughty monkey" I like to think he's talking to me personally.

Leno and Letterman both suck! In TV's most wanted 18-35 year old demographic they get beat by Family Guy reruns. They both need to retire.

When Jay does "Street Walking" it's hilarious and infomative to see how ignorant ppl really are about the simple facts of life. Most do not have a clue of the simple questions asked.
Jay all the way.
I could watch a whole show about "Jay Walking". I saw one where he was showing pictures of the presidential candidates in California and I was shocked at how many had no clue who they were. Even Hillary Clinton's picture was not identified. We wonder why our nation is in the shape that it in. When people don't know who is running for president, they certainly don't know how each one feels on the issues. How can you make an informed vote? I guess that was a studid question, they probably don'e vote at all and thats even worse. Yea, I say Jay! The Fruitcake Lady was hillarious too.

I disagree with you, "Family Guy" is 1 of the most funniest sit com's on the air.

I can't stand to watch David Letterman because Paul Shaffer gets on my nerves. How in the heck did he get that job? He can't sing and most of the time, when he talks, he makes no sense.
Letterman has been on the air, since 1982. when he used to be on NBC. since 1993 he's been on CBS.

It's so stupid that it's funny. People like things that are so stupid you can't help but to laugh.

I might be able to appreciate Leno more if he could tell just one joke without looking seven times at the que card. Come on, he had been a comedian for years, can't he even remember one joke? He does get the better guests, but Letterman is still my favorite. Oh, one more thing, let's keep American Late Night TV to the Americans...get the "not funny" Brits off.

Leno reminds me of a "yippy" Jack Russell terrier.

His voice gets whinny and his hands fly all over the place. And when he has a guest sitting next to him that is "high profile" he seems nervous and over exaggerated.

When they show him on the streets he always wears that stupid blue long sleeved shirt and blue jeans. What, he can't afford a different wardrobe of his own?

Don't get me started on his wimpy annoying bandleader, Kevin, who enjoys making references to his pot smoking and saying "...man" when he opens his trap...and that equally annoying woman in the band throwing that "gourd" looking instrument up in the air trying to screech out a tune! And the way they drag out the opening music to that high pitched drone of messy notes..I have to mute it until the Leno does his monolgue.

Melendez is useless, too.

They only thing I do enjoy is Monday night Headlines.

Give me the days of Johnny and his cool laid back ways of interviewing and the style of Doc Severson and his fill-in, Tommy. The only thing that annoyed me was Ed McMahon.

I think Conan will do fine if the studio heads will let him make it his own.

Time to go Leno.

Conan is by far the best, but I like Leno too. I just hope that Conan keeps his same format when he takes over for Leno.

I can't stand Letterman, Stewart, or Maher.

It will be a sad day with Jay Leno leaves NBC tonight show in 2010:
With Conan O'Brian taking over I feel the raiting will drop big big time!
He is different and is not even close to Jay's show or ways!
I know there will be only one Jay as it is with Jonny Carson but Jay is the best and with his street talk and other stuff with real people:
Just my two cents:
Jay is pretty good but johnny carson was and still is the very best!
