    I wish disease and death upon Jay Leno. Letterman for life!

    I can't wait until Conan is doing The Tonight Show. I just hope they don't try and ruin him. He's awesome.

    And I'm with Monorail Man ... nobody on at 11:30 compares to Colbert.

    Where is Jimmy Kimmell? He's really come into his own. I'm glad they didn't can him after his shakey start.

    I didn't vote for Leno. It sounds like he has marbles in his mouth when he talks. He is decidedly lower-concept in his jokes and the way he delivers them to the masses. It makes me feel stupid to watch Leno. Letterman used to be the guy, but I'm just not compelled by him any more. Still love him, just don't stay up to say good night any more. Love Conan. Funny guy who has gotten better with time.

    Bring back Ted Coppel!

    There's a true American 11:30 option I didn't see:

    Steven Colbert

    Re: Leno or Letterman?

    I dislike many of the late night talk shows. Sometimes I'll watch the monolouge and they get into the interviews and I just stop caring and turn it off.

    I grew hearing a lot of Letterman's show, as my grandparents would watch it every night before going to bed, and I've watched the show myself and it was okay. I did watch a whole night of Leno to see Brian Setzer perform and just about gouged my eyes out it was so horrible.

    I never got into Conan either. The only late night guy I really like is Craig Fergueson.

    I enjoy Conan as well, but the reason he isn't in the poll is because he isn't one of the 11:30 choices. This is why some folks can say they watch Letterman AND Conan, because, they aren't on at the same time. And this sounds exactly like I'm explaining a joke that Leno told... Anyway, thanks for coming to answer the poll and leave comments. I appreciate it.

    Conan for the win. Letterman for the sometimes decent musical guests.

    Leno? Are you guys kidding me? Why not just squirt some lemon juice in my eye.

    No offense, but Leno SUCKS. Jesus Christ could be a guest, and he wouldn't ask him any cool questions, like 'What's it like to walk on water?" Leno is the worst interviewer ever.

    I agree that Conan is the man. Letterman is cool too, but Leno is a mess.

    I agree: Absolute Comedic Genius, playing off of Doc Sevrenson and Ed McMahon - too funny, every night. Even when he had an 'off' night, one look at the audience and they would crack up...

    I do like Letterman over Leno; I hate the fact that Leno explains every one of his jokes - like a so-so joke will get a laugh the second time if he just gives a little more info...

    "Congress - as part of its refurbishment - is asking to double the size of the current bathrooms to accomodate more people, wheelchairs - and Senator Craig's 'Bon Voyage' parties..."

    (little response)

    *looks over at Kevin Eubanks*

    "see, Senator Craig got caught in a men's room in an airport...

    (very little response)

    ...oh, never mind"

    (crickets)


    But like everyone, Letterman has lost his 'edge' (age? fatherhood?), and has become rather middle-of-the-road; it's too bad that he did not get the show when Carson retired as he always dreamed - and Carson wanted.
    Of course, Leno has held his own; the ratings are always close.

    Pshaw to both.
    Conan O'Brien. TiVo it every night.
    I don't even bother with the other two.
    Watched Letterman, until his heart attack mellowed him out.
    Watched his spot on Oprah (she was in NYC to start her season), which was pretty good.

    Can't go to bed until Letterman is over.... I think NY'ers tend to like Letterman more. Do watch Leno when Letterman is a repeat.

    there arent enough choices in this poll>

    I enjoy both. however, I do have a problem with leno: if he would stop with the political bull****, and stick to actuall funny monologue, his show would be more enjoyable. (could be why the show was reduced to 1 hour from its original 1/1/2 hour-2 hour format.)
