My vote goes for Leno.

Does anyone remember Jack Paar...how about Steve Allen?
Jonny has my vote.

I remember Steve Allen and Jack Paar. As I recall, Jack Paar used to cry a lot on camera - sort of an early Glen Beck. But I loved Allen, particularly in the Steve Allen Show, where Louis Nye, as the Man In The Street, coined the nickname Stevarino (as in Hi Ho Stevarino).

Of course, Johnny is and forever shall be the consummate master; however, in my opinion, Conan blows Jay right out of the water without even trying.

Jay Leno is yesterdays news! I hope he fails as miserably at 11:30 as as he did at 10:00. In my opinion he's not especially funny or entertaining. Hopefully Conan will go to Fox or another network where he's wanted... NBC is in LAST place for a reason! They suck! Twisted Evil

I have to agree, the few times I've watched was to see a special guest (like Bill Cosby recently), I found Leno to be boring Sleep .
I still have found memories of staying up with my Grandma and watching Johnny Carson, she loved his show and watched every night.

I've never really been a Leno fan. He just doesn't bring any personality to the late-night time slot. Steve Allen was droll and situational, Carson was folksy with a wicked streak, Letterman is sardonic and loves to milk a running gag, and Conan is surreal and self-effacing.

Johnny Carson was a total dynamo: comedian (both standup and doing bits), magician, ranconteur, and a classy guy who was easy to talk to. He knew exactly what he could get past the censors, and he used a light touch and an innocent expression with it. Johnny always seemed very in-control but not uptight, toastmaster style.

Conan is very different--his bits are all about crazy stuff going on around him, and how powerless he is to stop it. I can understand why that's too different for Tonight Show audience... a little too weird and scripted (which makes sense, since Conan's background is a a comedy writer.) But better that than a failed, flopsweating attempt to be Johnny. Leno, to me, has never really progressed beyond being a standup comic on a big stage who's very needy for validation.

The late night king will forever be Carson. Leno and Conan are too shallow.
I agree with Mark. Penn and Teller will change the face of late night TV forever and Lewis Black will blow it into orbit Laughing Laughing

I've never watched anybody who even comes close to Johnny Carson.

John Stewart and Stephen Colbert are making all those guys look dated.

Go to bed at a decent hour and you won't have to be concerned with it. Very Happy I am waiting on Obama to suggest that the whole nation convert to East Coast Time. Laughing Laughing Laughing
