1 At first I though Jay Leno was a genuinely nice enough guy. But once NBC made him the heir to the throne for "The Tonight Show" from Johnny Carson, this was the beginning of some anti-Leno sentiment and the Leno/Letterman feud. Hell, even the late Johnny Carson himself refused to even appear on any episodes of Leno's Tonight Show. Flash-forward from 18 years after Leno 1st took over from Carson to 2010 and we have the Leno/Conan fiasco, aka the Tonight Show Fiasco II. The mess NBC created during this fiasco w/ the Conan and Leno's Frankenstein of a primetime show ("The Jay Leno Show") further made Leno despised even more than he was in '92 and another embarassment notch for NBC. -- Submitted By: (markiemark6891) on August 22, 2011, 4:50 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

3 I didn't mind Jay Leno at first, but after awhile he ran some jokes into the ground. Some other bits were just stupid to begin with - a case in point would be the Wheel of Consolation during one season of American Idol. The person voted out in the most recent episode of American Idol spins the wheel, and most of the time it would stop on a dime (can you say rigged?) for some excessively lame joke/visual gag. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on October 28, 2010, 8:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 This was a guy who was really funny, then he took over the Tonight Show and about all he did was political stuff and it was all over. -- Submitted By: (Scaramouche) on July 6, 2010, 6:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Ironically, I initially LIKED Jay and was rooting for him when he and Letterman were at it re taking over for Carson. Yeah, it didn't take long for my patience with his shtick to wane and to consider the show something to be tolerated at best when nothing else was on. Oh, and I had a friend who attended a taping and he said that every SYLLABLE of the show followed a script- even the 'spontaneous' banter between Jay, the band and guests. Long-short is that by the time Jay said he was leaving (the first time), I had long since quit bothering with the show so my reaction was 'meh' to that announcement- and, though I considered Conan only marginally better, I believed he could have improved the slump had he been given a fair chance. Now? Two things: One is that I have newfound admiration for Conan for NOT playing 'happy family' when the suits announced taking off Jay from his sinking ship and insisting he pilot Conan's ship part of the time. Not only do I believe was it wrong for the suits to appearantly pander to Jay like that (instead of telling him 'too bad, you had your chance and you BLEW IT. Goodbye already!)but it was bogus that they didn't even have the decency of discussing this with Conan himself BEFORE they publically made their announcement. Good for Conan for actually publically rebuking the lot and telling them that he wasn't going to play along! I'm also wondering if there might possibly be a Mama Carlson motivation behind all this re the network ,etc. ("WKRP" fans know what I'm referring to- if that's the case here). As for Jay? I'm not giving him or NBC the satisfaction of watching him EVER (not even the opening night) and I hope there's some backlash re the entertainment industry against him (as in studios and celebs deliberately[and publically] refuse to go anywhere near his show)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 16, 2010, 4:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

7 TMZ has reported that Jay has officially stolen The Tonight Show from Conan. Anybody going to believe Jay's "nice guy" act now? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on January 14, 2010, 4:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Seth MacFarlane? A pact with Satan? Sorry Travoltron, you must be mistaken. Not only does Seth MacFarlane not believe in Satan (or anything religious, for that matter), he'll also go out of his way to publicly announce his denial of a God and degrade anybody who actually does believe to the point where he comes off as an intolerant jackass. See Family Guy and the Cleveland Show for examples. -- Submitted By: (ScottyB) on January 8, 2010, 7:09 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 The mass failure by moving the talentless Leno to 10 pm has shown what a hack he is. Bill Hicks did a great stand up comedy bit about "sucking satan's c***" about Vinalla Ice and MC Hammer servicing the dark lord for popularity- was Jay Leno far behind- enjoy the link...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lv2qLOiioPc -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on January 8, 2010, 4:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 This guy must have a similar pact with Satan to the one Seth MacFarlane has. His show fails miserably and NBC goes and gives him a better timeslot. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on January 8, 2010, 1:44 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 The guy, from what I have heard of pre-Tonight Show, was a good comic, so why he rips off some of Howard Stern's stuff, I do not know. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 4, 2009, 6:04 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 I always thought Stern was just a whiner when he said that Jay stole material from him. Then I read he had hired Stuttering John as his announcer on the internet. I immediately just wrote it off as a hoax. I mean, who would be so moronic as to hire a stutterer for their announcer? Then I saw it being reported in the legitimate news and just couldn't believe it. I guess Howard was right all along. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on July 22, 2009, 10:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Day one. I like Letterman better! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 24, 2009, 9:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
14 Leno is still a good comedian and seems to be a decent enough guy, I don't see any strong enough evidence that he's BTF though his hissy fit over his tickets being sold on ebay came awful close -- Submitted By: (gpshaw) on April 7, 2009, 10:14 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
