    Re: Farwell to Jay Leno

    I'm a big Leno fan. Sad to see him go but at the same time I'm excited to see what Conan brings to the table. I gotta admit, I've missed him the last couple months. I'm glad Jay will be returning in the Fall with his new show.

    Re: Farwell to Jay Leno

    I don't really care as I don't watch any of them that often. But I've never liked Leno, not funny. Conan is much better.

    I'm just glad Conan will be on earlier. Our here on the east coast it was difficult staying up until 1:00 am to see some Conan.

    Re: Farwell to Jay Leno

    I never liked Leno and really liked Conan, but I am worried that moving to the earlier timeslot will kill Conan. At least he gets to keep Max!

    On one of his last shows he made a very emotional statement that he would not change just because he was moving up to the Tonight Show. I'm expecting it to be a little bit diluted, but I'm hoping he keeps the same style in genera.

    Re: Farwell to Jay Leno

    Never been a big fan of Conan. I hope that either Jay with his earlier program or Conan on the tonight show, continue with headlines. That is my favorite part of the tonight show.

    Yet, you both opened up and apparently read the entire thread AND chose to respond.

    Conan/Leno: The Tonight Show

    Friday night is Jay Leno's last show as the host of the tonight show after 17 years. Starting Monday Conan O'Brien will be the new host and will be Leno's last guest on Friday. This should be an interesting transition.

    I'll admit that I can't wait for Monday. I've tried to watch Leno this week and I just can not get into his humor. I've missed Conan over the past 3 months and am looking forward to the earlier time slot. How's everyone else feel about this transition?

    Re: Farwell to Jay Leno

    I can not wait for Conan to be back. I tried to watch Leno this week and his humor is just not my taste. The whole "the economy is bad, how bad is it?" bit tonight was just awful IMO. And Kevin Eubanks' band couldn't carry Max Weinberg's jock.

    Conan's had 3 months to cook up news ideas and it should be epic.
