    Leno hammering Letterman in ratings...

    At least according to the Hollywood Insider Mike Evans radio blurb I heard this morning on the drive to work. Since Leno went back to 10:35 PM, there have been 23 shows, and Leno has won 21 of 23. Also, Leno is supposedly winning in all demographic areas. I didn't catch the numbers exactly, but I thought Evans said that last week, Leno was in the lower 4's, and Letterman was in the lower 3's.

    I tried to find some ratings links, but pretty much all entertainment sights are blocked here at work. The blog on Evans sight (On The Road With Mike Evans) lags the radio blurb by one day, so his commentary should be available tomorrow.

    No accounting for taste.

    I don't think this is an indication of how much better Leno has become upon his return as much as just how unwatchable Letterman has become (the iPad thing he did the other night was just not funny).

    I havent watched Letterman in a long time. His best days are behind him. I dont watch Leno either because he is kind of a *****.

    They were talking about that on the Stern show last week, and mentioned that Nightline beat both of them.

    Late night comedy like Letterman, Tonight Show and SNL has all gotten really boring over the last 10 years. I wish Craig Kilborn would come back, he had the best show.

    How do people find Leno funny? Seriously.

    We definitely need Conan back.

    In both Leno and Letterman's defense, SNL is far worse than the nightly shows. that things has been a train wreck for almost 5 years now!

    Apart from the first couple and last couple of weeks, Conan was pretty much a ratings disaster at 10:35 PM. If he comes back at the 10:35 PM timeslot, he had best come back with something significantly different than what he had previously.

    I think you're being a bit unreasonable, who doesn't think that those same sarah palin jokes are funny 2 years later?
