Hes a little more than six months away from passing the Tonight Show baton again but Jay Leno is very much still on his game ratings-wise.

Ever since Letterman went full on lib.. it turned off his audience.
Who wants to hear that dribble every night?
Letterman still has a talk show?
Not for long if this keeps up lol!
That’s because Kimmel and Letterman are morons, while Leno is truly a funny person, and while he doesn’t always show it, it’s often enough to be better than those to flacks.
The new guy’s ratings will inevitably crash. He isn’t funny, unless you’re about 14.
Jimmy Kimmel was only good when he was Ben Stein’s sidekick on “Win Ben Stein’s Money”.
Can someone tell me where Letterman gets his old man suits from? Does he have access to Nikita Krushev’s wardrobe?!
Letterman is a moron. I’ve never thought he was funny in the least.
Or remember when he was on The Man Show with Adam Corrola.
” Letterman is a moron. Ive never thought he was funny in the least.”
An unintelligent, mean SOB. Not funny.
Made 400 million......only in America..
This one is typical:
Letterman had the ability to be very funny throughout his NBC years. During his first few years on CBS he was genuinely innovative and creative. ComedicalIy, I thought he had it all over Leno. Now, hes just a mean, old man who likes to use his show to lash out at anyone (usually conservatives). You wouldnt mind if he spread his venom among the whole political spectrum, but hes just another shill for the liberals.
just to balance it out a bit. I haven’t watched any network shows (other than reruns like Seinfeld) in years.
but you have to give letterman his due, when I was in my 20’s, we thought he was hilarious. I don’t think you can say he wasn’t funny decades ago.
things have changed, my politics, and him sticking his politics in his act.
Not counting Letterman, whose just a bitter old man now, the rest of Leno’s contemporaries just traffic in stunts designed to get passed around on the internet rather than actually doing something humorous.
They just take something hot in pop culture at the moment, add something geeky like a reference to Dr. Who or Arrested Development, and then run around for 3 minutes while the winner of last year’s American Idol sings Staying Alive with a banjo.
Letterman was funny early on much like George Carlin, but both slipped into, what? A combination of mediocrity and bitterness. I saw Carlin in person later on and he was almost unintelligible. He was reading off of cue cards he held in his hand and seemed unconnected to not only his audience but to where he was. They are two peas in a pod to me.
So, I tried to watch his show. I really, really tried. Watched it a number of times, particularly when WBill Jr was little, and I was up with him anyway.
I wanted to like it. Really, I did. But it stunk. And not just a little bit. Not just, "Wow, that last joke was a real clunker." The entire thing was just bad. Writing was bad. Fallon's delivery was bad. The skits were bad. Music was bad. It was just.......bad. No redeeming qualities whatsoever.
Dunno what NBC sees in the guy, unless they're like me, and really, really want to like him. I give him less than a year before he's toast.
Arsenio Hall is getting a late night show back on Fox pretty quick. My guess is that the timing is not coincidental. He's going to eat all the other late night hosts for lunch.
Now, he's "old".
Leno was funny. He made fun of hilary the red queen challenging her to come on his show.
Her people called his bluff. She went on and took over withed canned q&a.
He looked like a POW on camera under duress
Went in for an emergency coronary bypass the next day
Been a hareful lib spokesman ever since. Never before
He went over out of fear it seems.
I dont know how people, Americans, can do that
Hes been a failure and will go down in history as a bitter fool
People dont want to hear whom a celeb prefers personally. Equal opportunity mockery is the only acceptable position
Johnny carson did it
