Late Night Leaders: Leno vs. Letterman

So lately I have been thinking.  Do you watch Late night shows after your local news?  Or have you not really gotten into them?  Well today, I'm asking you,  who does it best?

Jay Leno vs. David Letterman


Some hate one or the other, and others don't care.  Me?  I have a mad deep love for Jay Leno.

I find him way funnier than David Letterman.  He hasn't had any *ahem* scandals, and he is a genuinely nice guy. 

How do I know this?  

Exhibit A:  Adam Corolla was on his show and he told a story about how they were in Vegas together heading to catch a flight.  Adam just walked right past all the fans but Jay stopped and signed a autograph for everyone.  

Exhibit B:  Guss & I actually went to a taping of The Jay Leno Show in 2005.  An hour before the show, Jay comes out and asks if anyone has any questions.  The next hour people raise their hands and ask to get a photo with him and he obliges.  

I don't know.  Just something about him.  I also find his interviews more interesting.  David Letterman goes off on these tangents and even starts talking about himself.  

I do find this Superbowl commercial from awhile back funny though.

Other Notes:   

I hate this guy.  I'm sorry, it's so horrible to hate someone, especially if you don't know them, but he just annoys the heck out of me.  When I hear him talk/laugh (promo's on TV or if someone I really really like is on the DLS) it's like nails on a chalkboard to me.

Of course there are many people who are against Jay Leno because of the Leno vs. Conan - Late Night debacle.  I like/d Conan O'Brien but he just didn't cut it at that time slot.  He reaches a different demographic than Jay Leno.  However, he is pretty funny.  I especially liked one of his monologue lines when all this was going on.  

"And I just want to say to the kids out

 there watching: You can do anything 

you want in life, Unless Jay Leno wants

 to do it, too.

Other Late Nighters I approve of?

Jimmy Fallon:  I actually started out not liking him.  He just seems like this hyper crazy man child.  But then slowly, he has grown on me.  Especially when he hosts SNL.

Craig Ferguson:  I actually don't watch him often but when I do, he is so freaken crazy, it's hilarious.  Plus I love "The Drew Carey Show" so my like for him started early.

Do you watch late night TV?  If you do, who is your favorite?  Anyone who especially bugs you?

I honestly don't have a preference - I'm not a fan of either of them! lol. I usually watch Conan or Craig Ferguson, those two are my favorites!

I prefer Jay Leno over David. I hate that Paul guy too! He just needs to go away lol. I love Jaywalking and when they do the funny newspaper clippings

I prefer Leno over Letterman, mostly becuase I can't stand Paul Schaffer! He's so annoying and useless... Even though he's a great musician. I prefer Conan and Fallon to all of them though.
