Way to screw up a good thing you've got going, NBC.

Letterman and Conan blow Jay out of the water.



It's a story for me because of the issues we face in this world that you've mentioned, and for the many more painful parts of our daily lives that we need to take an occassional break from during the day/night.

You need laughter in this life or you'd go insane.
You might not like Jay, but he's always had number 1 ratings over Letterman while on the tonight show. I hate Letterman, he's so corny, and those top ten lists are so stupid, Jay's headlines are better :P

I always liked Conan more than both of them, but Conan is more for younger people, he's cooky and weird, and older people just aint gettin it.

NOT true ... when Jay started it was all Letterman and stayd that way till some actor ( don't recall his name ) got cought with a hooker, like 1 or 2 days before he was to be on Daves show so he called it off . then showed up on Jays show like 3 weeks later or so . and after that Jay has had the winning # s on late night .

IMO Jays not that good he gets a lot of his stuff from other shows . TV and Raido alot of the stuff Jay has done came from Howard Stern .

IMO most of the headlines are made up ... not be him or his staff , but by the same person sending in the headline so they can be on TV ...

The masturbating bear. Who thinks up these things?

I read that part of Conan's stipulations to leaving would be that he could retain the rights to that bear and a few more of his trademark creations, and NBC obliged.

Looks like he's officially off late night - wonder if another network will pick him up?

I just can't picture him not having a show.

Hugh Grant. yw

but the thing is, one of the biggest mistakes NBC made was giving the Tonite Show to Conan.

And Dave's top Ten's aren't made up? lol

And fact is, you can look it up, Jay led the ratings against Letterman for 14 straight years. And it wasn't just because of one guest, its because people never got Dave... He's as cooky as Conan, just he's older. But in general all of them have writers, and most of their jokes aren't even ones they thought up, they are all just faces with someone elses jokes put in their mouths.

Even during the writers strike, Dave and Conan tried having their shows go on without writers, but their ratings dived to their lame duck jokes and they stopped. So don't bring that up....

Even most of what they say during interviews is thought up by writers. Most of the interview itself is scripted.

I looked it up at the start Dave wins
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Letterman

The main competitor of The Late Show is NBC's The Tonight Show, which was hosted by Jay Leno for nearly 16 years, but since June 1, 2009 has been hosted by Conan O'Brien. In 1993 and 1994, The Late Show consistently gained higher ratings than Tonight. But in 1995, ratings dipped and Leno's show consistently beat Letterman's in the ratings.

now for the writers strike Dave came back and one of the funnyest things was his face he had a beard . dave was the frist show to make an individual agreement with the Writers Guild of America . and his writers came back, he never went back off . yes writers do most if not all the jokes for the host .

as for the top ten of corse its made up .... . I was talking about Jays theft of bits like headlines . a Lettermen gag he was doing on his morning show in Indy it was and still called Small Town News,. Jays interviewing ( Jaywalking ) of the homeless and porn starts is from Howard Stern along with "Stuttering John" Melendez .

interview are scripted for the most part they are preinterviews done and ? are made up from them so to give a opening for the gust to tell a hopfuly funny story . and keep things moveing along .

I predict that when Jay returns he will get worse ratings then Conan, I'm sure a decent amount of Conan fans used to watch Jay while they waited for Conan (I did) and after all of this a pretty good chunk of them will boycott Jay Lenos new tonightshow.
