Jay Leno or Conan O' Brien

    Both JL and CO have nothing on Letterman and Ferguson. Leno was funny but too 'scripted', and Conan is more a writer than a comedian. Letterman and Ferguson are naturally funny, and while keeping an interesting conversation with guests, they can be funny too.

    Ferguson is very crazy, funny. He can be hysterical I don't smoke dope but if I did, I'd watch him and laugh my ass off more!

    I tried to watch it (normally I'm with Colbert) it came off as painfully not funny. I liked leno and I'm a fence sitter when it comes to conan. Sometimes he's slightly entertaining for the most he's geek schtick. Dave will hand him his arse tho.

    I guess O'Brien's numbers were huge yesterday. I call it the curiousity factor. I hope Leno does well at 10.

    They're different type of comedy. I find both pretty funny. Leno is more a traditional comedian, Conan has silly gags and so forth. I love the characters Conan comes up with.

    I don't think Conan will do as well as Jay has on the Tonight Show because it's a different audience and requires a different type of comedy.

    I miss Johnny Carson's facial expressions. Nobody was better than him!

    Back in my day, we had real comedy MEN and not these wild haired, hyper, obnoxious assholes that the tube is filled with now!
