Just read on TMZ that Jay Leno is going to take over The Tonight Show on February 1st following the Olympics. Conan is rumored to be moving back to the following time slot.

Fuck that shit, I LOVE watching Conan at 11:30 when I'm going to bed. I've caught Jay at 10 and I just don't like him as much (at all)

Is anything on NBC actually getting ratings right now? Seem to recall Leno doing terrible at 10, only being kept because his show was cheaper to make than a drama or something, making it still profitable.

Everyone I talk to, myself included, likes Conan better. Who is watching Leno?

Leno's show is substantially worse than The Tonight Show was even when Jay hosted. Conan's leaps and bounds better than Jay.

If this is true I hope Conan will move to another channel.

I don't see how they can just kick Conan out of the 11:30 spot. I'm sure he entered into a contract that guaranteed him that spot for a certain amount of time.

Put Leno at 12:30 and get rid of Jimmy Fallon. Now that show sucks.

From what I have read leno is geting worse ratings than he got on the tonight show and that is why conan is doing bad. You put a show on that gets low ratings do you really expect people to watch the next show. That late I would go to sleep or do something else.

Didn't they want to replace conan on his own show when he first started? I read about a month or 2 ago that they wanted to replace conan on the tonight show due to the low ratings.

He appeals to an older demographic. Then again, I'm 43 and I can't remember a single time he ever made me laugh. Maybe he appeals to a much older demographic. Or he made a deal with Satan.

Yeah Conan appeals to a younger demographic, a LOT of high school/college age kids. Leno appeals to that older crowd. I find both of them funny, but for some reason I enjoy Conan's brand of humor a lot more. Dunno why.

Leno is Mr. Middle America. Easy jokes, easy laughs. Seeing him interview dumbasses on the street, reading out typo headlines etc = comfort food for the brain.

Conan is much more of a niche performer whom a lot of people just don't "get". He really changed his act for the tonight show to try and be more mainstream, but I think it just hasn't worked.

do either of those fools actually make people laugh? like audible "ha ha" laugh?

as far as talk show hosts go sure they're ace, but i didn't think anybody actually laughed at the things they said. if you wanna laugh watch its always sunny, arrested dev, the office, etc, that's "ha ha" funny. otherwise it's just a matter of charisma and likability. and ratings say the older guy has more of it.

I'm pretty sure this is how Carson Daly became famous. Oh, and how Carson Daly has managed to date Tara Reid, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Christina Aguilera, Willa Ford, and Jaime Pressly

I think Conan is hilarious. I always laugh out loud when watching his show.

Leno is Mr. Middle America.

Middle America sucks.

To be honest I always thought this whole thing was a dumb move. I mean Leon was doing great in the 11:30 time slot and I'll assume Conan was doing fine at 12:30.

How can you compare a Talk Show with a Comedy Show? Comedy shows, like you mentioned, are taped and edited if anything they can take days to weeks just to get the right laugh. If that doesnt work after they film a show if it doesn't hit the right laugh track they can have the people comeback and redo the scene.

A talk show is pretty much taped lived with little to no editing if anything you may have heard some shows say they are in a delay when it airs that so censors can do there thing. I have been fortunate enough to have been on a couple tapings of Conan and David Letterman show and I tell you it really depends who is on that night but I and the audience had a great time.

I will say this if this is true and Conan goes back to his spot I am glad cause he had to curb so much of his comedy who a different demographic.

I preferred Conan in the old timeslot anyway. If true, I hope this means Jimmy Fallon gets tossed out on the street.

NBC is denying this. I wouldn't believe everything TMZ says. And everyone knows Conan is awesome.

Oh I get it, it's funny because he's doing some work with NBC that involves contracts, now I understand. Wow, that's a funny joke he told.

If it's true, it really stinks. Leno leaving the Tonight Show in favor of Conan was in the works for years, and if Leno didn't want out, he shouldn't have left. NBC would've lost Conan, but it looks like that's what's potentially going to happen anyway.

Ah well, I think Craig Ferguson is still the best of the late night talk show hosts anyway. His contract is up this year too, so things could get really interesting.
