Leno may want his old job back

I didn't think it would be a hit. But I expected it to fare well with his regulars. The Jay Leno Show, that is.

Leno took his act to prime-time television earlier this year after giving "Tonight" responsibilities to Conan O'Brien.

O'Brien's show is doing great. Leno's new prime-time show, well, isn't.

Now Leno says he wanted to stay in the "Tonight" slot, but NBC wanted to move him to prime-time. He also told the AP he'd go back to the "Tonight" show if NBC would let him. Fat chance.

I was never a big Leno fan. Always watched Letterman. O'Brien is a good TV show host, but I guess I just don't get his humor. The big surprise to me, though, was Conan's "Late Night" replacement, Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon's show keeps getting better, and I never though I'd be saying that about a Fallon show.

Jimmy Sucks!

I wish they would redo the lineup that way it was and kick Jimmy Fallon to the curb. I like him on SNL, but as a host he's horrible. He seems like he's nervous or something. I don't see them keeping him around for much longer.

Your right, he does seem

Your right, he does seem nervous. Probably, somewhat, because he is. He was the same way on SNL. In my opinion, that's part of what makes him great on late night TV. He can't keep a straight face through half of his stuff, which makes it even funnier to me.
Eh, to each his own!

None of them

will ever hold a candle to Johnny Carson. None of 'em. I'm not old enough to remember Johnny much-but I do watch him on the 'net from time to time. I do remember coming home late when I was a kid and remember hearing "heeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrreeeeee's Johnny".

I like Jay. But can't stomach Jimmy Fallon. When Johnny quit the Tonight Show, I hated Jay Leno. In a few years I got a little more used to Jay's style and began to watch the Tonight Show more. Perhaps people will get more used to Jimmy and perhaps Jimmy will loosen up a little. I think he's a cool dude, but he's a little too up-tight on the show, IMO.
