Leno to quit..Conan takes the helm.

In 2009. But still newsworthy.

Shame that Conan's gonna have to scale down his eccentric humor. But at least he's getting his shot. Well deserved.

Conan always makes me laugh out loud whenever I watch him, Leno is just not funny.

Leno wrote:“In 2009, I’ll be 59 years old and will have had this dream job for 17 years,” Leno said. “When I signed my new contract, I felt that the timing was right to plan for my successor and there is no one more qualified than Conan.


I didn't understand that... doesn't Leno realize Conan cracks jokes about him all the time? :-?

Anyway, Leno won't be missed IMO and Conan will get the heavier spotlight like he deserves.

;-D

I'm surprised that Letterman isn't going after the job - it's his dream job. I suppose his health would be a concern for NBC, though. Conan is pretty funny, but I like him wide-open. I'm not sure how he'd be in a G format. Oh well - I still have 5 more years to watch Triumph. That dog rocks. :)

Yeah, I've seen people that like Leno and hate Conan, and vice-versa.

I havn't watched Jimmy Kimmel alot, lost alot of interest for him when he left The Man Show high and dry for 2 bozos to take over. :,-(

Joe Rogan :-t .

All I can hope for is that Conan brings along Pimp-Bot 5000 to the Tonight Show. B-)

I hate Leno with a passion and am one of the biggest Conan fans out there. This is well-deserved, Conan is the funniest man in the universe after Dave Chappelle.

Yeah, I was thinkin' about that guy and remembered the GGW commercial, just couldn't think of his name.

Joe Rogan is just terrible though... He was on the "Great New York Boobs" Chappelle's Show episode though if I recall correctly. He's still a dillhole anyway, but that was the bright spot in his career.

Yeah when I heard Conan was taking over for Leno, I thought "Awesome, finally I can go to bed at 12:30 every night"....... then they say it's not happening until 2009 :~(

With Conan on at 12:30 still, how am I ever gonna find time to watch DL Hughley as Kilborn's replacement........ well on second thought maybe it's better that Conan's on at 12:30 :-° (BTW, love the Ricky Williams emoticon - I'm sure lots of people have made that joke but hey, I havn't been here in a while so screw you guys for judging me)
