I can't believe how Conan's getting screwed.  He's the best show HANDS DOWN in the late night timeslot.  If the NBC executives would get their heads screwed on straight, they would realize that.  Leno had a great show, and I like him, but it's time for him to either retire or move on to something else.  This is Conan's time and place, and he should stay at 11:35 pm EST.  He's earned it.

Oh, by the way, it's not Conan who's getting the low ratings, it was the Jay Leno Show (due to the 10:00 time slot).  Also, NBC has been struggling mightily anyway for some time now.

I'm a little surprised that the question about who is responsible for Conan's low ratings doesn't have an option that says, ummm, "CONAN". 
Everyone is all over his jock like he's something special.  I don't find him appealing in any way, and don't think he's all that funny, honestly.  Perhaps if he was bringing in the viewers, this whole thing wouldn't be going down the way it is.

I was expecting this comment from a 50 year old diner waitress who loves Jay  Leno and the way he does the headlines, and just "doesn't get" Conan or his awkward brand of humor
But something DID happen, and both shows are way worse than they were before.. What it was? I don't know

And sweet god, the first time I saw the preview for "The Tooth Fairy" I threw up in my mouth then broke my TV..  Why people waste their money on that garbage is beyond me

Amen Janet - I don't find Conan funny. To be quite honest, I actually kind of find him annoying. I "get" him, I just don't "like" him.

Letterman shoulda got Carson`s spot hands down. NBC hasn`t had  a good talk show host since those 2 left.

That's true, but Conan is losing the 11:30 time slot to Letterman.  Leno use to beat Letterman in the ratings.

If Conan was beating Letterman, they'd have just let Jay walk to another network.  But Leno tops Letterman at 11:30, that's why they want him back there.  At 10 o'clock, Jay's ratings suck.

Touche, and you are right.

I've just been talking to so many Conan fans, it never dawned on me that he could be the problem.

Of all the late night hosts, all networks,  Conan is seriously the worst.  Humor, stunts, jokes.  He's sad.  Johnny Carson was the best there ever was.  Leno is ok,  Better in the 11:30 time slot than 10:00.  I'd rather go to the proctologist than watch Conan.

Letterman is getting way too old, and he's using his slimy sex scandal to gain ratings.  I'll take Conan anyday over Grandpa Letterman.

How is there this many people who don't like Conan?  He does a great job, and I think he's incredibly funny -- one of my favorite shows.

My friend....Are you serious? I was shocked to find out they picked Conan to replace Leno.  I want Jay back.  When I see Conan this pops into my head:

How the heck does Conan even remotely remind you of Pee Wee?  They are absolutely nothing alike in any way, shape, or form.  I like Jay, but I like Conan better.

I have never seen any of them as they are usually on here at 3am and years old.
#18 | 1708 days ago

I have never liked Conan either.  I like Jay pretty good, have never cared much for David.   I used to watch Johnny Carson all the time and after him there is no other.

The Rock makes me mad with another one of these, I thought The Gameplan and Race to Witch Mountain was enough for that "crossover" identity.

I haven't seen The Princess and The Frog yet, but I was/am a little hopeful on the movie only because in trailers it looked like the first "classic" Disney movie in a long while. Me and my sister have also made sure to watch pretty much every damn Disney movie there is (minus the recent sequels, I can only go through so much pain), so disappointment in Disney movies hasn't really turned me off completely yet.

I don't watch much of the Late Night slot on any networks, but I do find some of what Conan does to be funny. I probably should've gone with "Other" because that takes care of the "I really don't care" option, but I guess I like blaming NBC because of what awfulness they've produced recently too.

And as for the multiple people who said "I only watch/ed Johnny", I understand, the man was funny, I own a few DVD's of seasons for whenever I want a laugh, but the man did die 5 years ago already...Was "Late Night Television" just supposed to die with him?

Last I heard FOX was offering Conan a contract and time slot for him to move his show, but 2/3 of the viewers in a large public opinion survey don't want it to happen. He could be funnier on FOX's anything you dare network, as opposed to NBC's clean cut comedy.

I REALLY doubt that anything can help that dude.  First off, he looks like a constipated turnip...his humor is drier than a used BOUNCE sheet AND that hair needs real help.

Jay just needs to move on to his own variety show in Vegas - he's done also.  Maybe he can bump off Neil Diamond at The Lucky Horseshoe Lounge...

I don't understand why these two are being trashed, while Jimmy Fallon gets off easy. If anything they need to revoke his contract. We (at the Q) knew beforehand that this was going to be a bad move, as indicated in earlier polls. NBC needs to get it's head out of its ass and pay attention to what the viewers want.

 Eh, Dwayne Johnson's (it's just not The Rock anymore, folks, and how many among you watched him in his WWE career?) last three movies were made because they were cranked out by the Disney machine, which can (almost) do no wrong.

I always thought Conan was kind of funny; Letterman, not so much. Leno is on a higher plane than either and of course Carson owns the genre.

We could always bring back Arsenio Hall. Or The Chevy Chase Show!

I loved "The Rock" on WWE and once he quit, we quit watching it, so I will see any movie he makes.  I find him funny, and I don't care if he is a Disney machine, making kid movies - the kids love them too.

Haven't seen the Princess and the Frog although the kids have that movie as well - nothing about it appealed to me.

Never have watched late night TV, except occasionally - the genre also never appealed to me, so it pretty much doesn't matter who it is - don't like Jay Leno (except his cars) or David Letterman or Conan.

Personally, I always felt that Leno was the weakest of all the late night folks.  His Tonight shows just weren't funny.  And yet it had the higher ratings.  Go figure....

However...  I am also confused with NBC during this whole affair.  Why did they not give Conan the same chance they Gave Leno?  When Leno first started he went against Lettermen... And the first two years of the show, Letterman cleaned Leno's clock in the ratings.  It wasn't until after Leno had his "What were you thinking?" (Hugh Grant) show when his show took the ratings lead, never to let go. 
The point is, they Gave Leno two YEARS to improve.  They gave Conan like two months!  

Further...  If NBC was so in love with Leno, why make the change at the Tonight Show?  It was winning.  I have heard some claim that NBC had felt that Conan was the heir apparent and really wanted him there, so they sort of "forced" the deal on Leno.  Appeasing him with that ill fated 10pm show.  And if NBC was really so high on Conan, why did they not give him at least the same chance to succeed they gave Leno?

The entire affair made no sense and made NBC look like the ding-a-lings they are.

Besides...  Letterman is getting up there in age...  But he is still the King of late night TV.  He is today's Johnny Carson.

In fact, at the Emmy's years ago when Letterman came out to do the tribute to Carson...  He finished and was about to walk off when Jon Stewart told Dave on stage "Dave, everything you said about Johnny, we all feel about you."

I don't think that Conan is very funny or entertaining at all. In fact- I find him annoying..... I'd rather see somebody like Jon Stewart doing that show.
