Wow, I can't stand Conan O'Brian. He is so full of himself. I guess his humor appeals to the very young? :confused:

Leno is my favorite.

Leno has got to be the most un-funny person whose show I have ever used to put myself asleep to. And I used to put myself asleep to Arsenio Hall.

CO-NAN! CO-NAN! CO-NAN!

None of the other talk show hosts are willing to make a fool out of themselves for the sake of the audience as much as Conan does. He constantly makes fun of his show as well as others for the sake of a laugh, he's not full of himself at all.

He does say that his show is the best in a subtle sarcasm, just gotta know what to lok for :rofl:

I really don't watch any of them except by accident. It's his type of humor, nothing wrong with it, but I like more subtle, adult humor.

edit:to me his humor is like Three Stooges humor, some people love that stuff.

What would be a good example of this more subtle adult humor? Just wondering.

:biggrin:

I enjoyed the humor on the series "Frasier". I almost wet my pants during the episode with the dead seal and the "clap on, clap off" lamp.

Also, the comedy series "Wings" where Tony Shalub sings "my goat knows the bowling scores" to the tune of "Michael row your boat ashore".

Now that's funny. :uhh:

I like Leno best, but Carson Daly is a good second. I can't stand Conan, he's just the guy who's on between Leno and Daly. :biggrin:

I am not up late enough to watch anything but leno/letterman, and I cannot stand letterman, so if I watch anything it is Leno.

Clearly the women have the more refined tastes around here. I really don't know why people find Conan funny. His jokes are just dumb and awkward.

I didn't say Daly was great, I said he was a good second (I don't really watch his monologue often; I tend to enjoy his interviews though...those seem funnier and are just a style I like). I really have never liked Letterman (except the day I turned his show on and caught the aramadillos mating on his desk :rofl:), and that other guy, whats-his-name, the one who does "Five Questions", is just really boring to me; I don't find him funny at all.

I absolutely LOVE Jaywalking! :rofl: And everyone copies Headlines now in one way or another.

Edit: Oh, wait, I just realized that one choice is Craig Ferguson, not Craig Kilborne (I think that's his name...the tall blonde one with five questions). I'm undecided about Ferguson still. I haven't seen too many of his shows yet, and some have been funny and some have been really rough, so he may just need to gain a little more seasoning as a late night host.

Everyone copies headlines, adn I'll admit Jay's jaywalking and headlines are funny, but its not worth watching the whole show for. His monologue is just not funny anymore, especially in light of conan's. I watch Seinfeld on Fox during Jay's time on NBC, then switch to conan on NBC.

Conan's skits are always different, he's always got different stuff going on, and I think his mock interviews on the TV screens are seriously unbeatable. I watched the archived ones on his site and they just don't get any funnier than that.

Stalking Michael Jackson's motorcade after the trial was great too. He's just the best all around. I love during his monologue when he's waving at the crowd at all sides and then turns and waves behind him as if there was a crowd there. The fake moonwalking, the star trek mocking, the donald trump impressions, the jumping at the camera. The TEXAS RANGER LEVER. Im laughing just thinking of them. Genius!

Isn't the Daily Show still shown late nights? I know it's a reshowing at that point, but I'd rather watch the Daily Show twice than any of that other late night crap. Is Jimmy Kimmel still on? I never saw his show, but I liked him when he was still doing the sports report on the KROQ morning show.

The Daily Show is on some cable channel, isn't it? I don't pay for TV, so it's networks or nothing.
