Jimmy Fallon is the one that sucks at hosting a talk show. This guy is in his mid 30's and still acts like a little nervous butthead.
Agreed. Fallon is horrible. Late Night will be the one that suffers a slow death, not the Tonight Show.

With Leno's jokes, they were based on real life.
O'Brian is just "Slap Stick" Bathroom humor.

I'm sorry, but the absolute worst has to be Craig Ferguson. That man is not funny at all! Letterman is the King of Late Night!

I thought the opening bit of him running from NYC to Hollywood was pretty funny... the rest of it seemed to be pretty much the usual Conan schtick.... the set looked great though!

The opening bit was quite funny. I think Conan runs the risk of turning off tons of Leno viewer, but he has certainly gained his Late Night audience, so it may not even matter.
