I've never liked him, but he killed my Dave for 17 yrs, and at this hour I want to chill with whatevever beyond our heavy duty pundits.

3. He never
should have left the Tonight Show, and Conan should have stayed in NY.

15. Right. NBC certainly miscalculated
They were afraid that Conan was going to jump ship. Don't know whether he hinted at that, and, five years ago, Conan was apparently king. But Leno stayed popular. I have yet to watch a single Tonight Show with Conan.

16. Bingo. And that is basically what is happening. Leno's
ratings are going to hurt Conan. I don't know what they were thinking?

4. I've enjoyed watching him
Otherwise, what do you have? A bunch of shows that make all cops look like principled scientists (CSI)?

5. I read that his viewership dropped off by 7 million the 2nd night
If it turns out to be knockoff of the Tonight Show, maybe he won't be as big a threat.

6. I will tune him in every night
All the other channels have those crap 'law' shows. I never watch those.

10. Jay Leno wouldn't know funny if it bit him on his big, fat chin.

11. Kill off the 10pm lineup, lets hope,as of now
I usually watch 1970's Emergency reruns at 10pm. How many CSI and CSI clones can one stand? His show is so bad I don't think we need to worry about him more than a few weeks anyway.

14. The new season for the other programs begins next week.
What is airing now are just reruns.

Next week will be the test and there are many shows that have dedicated viewers who might TiVo Leno but they won't give up their programs. That is why NBC has been in last place for so many years, the other networks offer better programs.
