Craig Ferguson not even listed? Can't take this poll seriously.

Letterman was witty and sharp 25 years ago. I was sad when he didn't replace Carson. But over the last dozen years Letterman has become less funny, less innovative and he has not kept his show fresh. He also alienates huge chunks of his audience by being a mindless DNC propagandist. Carson had too much class for this. You never knew Carson’s politics, because Johnny knew people didn’t want to go to bed upset. In the end, replacing Carson with Leno was the best move. Letterman just doesn’t get it.

David Letterman needs anger management- the only person that thinks his recently nasty turn is comical is Paul Schaffer. Please, for God's sake, turn off Paul's mike.

People began to watch Letterman when he was funny and spontaneous- not an attack dog wannabe. Leave Regis, Palin, and all the other retread topics to others- you're about to start the countdown on your extended 15 minutes of fame.

There's probably just as many anti-unions people as there is to pro-unions people.

Unbelieveable!(Conan dumped for Jay's return) Forget 9/11 ... THIS is proof that the world's coming to an end. Couldn't NBC have given Jay a weekly hour-long show like Red Skelton and Carol Burnett once had, with the rest of his time doing stand-up in Las Vegas? Hell, if I were him I would have even moved away from 'Babylon West' to Nevada geographically favoring Vegas, and driven desert Interstate "Fear and Loathing ..." every time I had to visit Hollyweird ... he sure as hell has enough CARS!

I know "business is business", but this is one of the lowest things corporate television has ever done, AND why did Jay even quit in the first place if his heart was NOT into taking it easier?!

Learn the facts prior to spouting off. Jay Leno never quit the Tonight Show, idiot.

YES he did ... he merely thought his pre-11 PM news show would make it on a nightly (as opposed to weekly) basis, and THAT was his mistake. But you seem to think exactly like those contemporary Hollyweird wackos who secretly do crystal meth and then engage in anonymous, public gay sex with other "conservatives" like Senator Larry Craig while SIMULTANEOUSLY making TV shows like "Weeds" and "Californication" that make marijuana FALSELY look like the
real choice drug of sex maniacs to the "straight" world!

If I were Jay I'd flee into the desert from 'Babylon West' just to get away from YOUR ilk, and as loathsome as he is maybe Pat Robertson's actually on to something in that ultimately 'Babylon East'(on the Hudson) and 'West' alike will be destroyed by SOME kind of righteous hand or another.

George Lopez is hilarious on TBS. I've been watching him the past few nights when staying up past my bedtime.

I love Jay, but now that he is back on at 11:30, I never get to see him.

Chelsea Handler. She would be a great The Tonight Show host, her and Leno seem to get on well.
