    I myself am a huge conan o'brien fan. david letterman is alright, jay not so much. i'm bored out of my mind now and carson daly is on, but alice cooper is on so it's alright.

    Definately Conan. Nobody else does a better Ahnold skit.

    I don't care for his skits and his interviews are hit and miss, but I think Craig Ferguson's monologues are pretty funny. I'd never seen his show before about two weeks ago but I've seen a couple since.

    Overall I'd say either Conan or Letterman but I don't watch late night TV often enough to really be a good judge.
     
  4. hmm, its a tossup between Conan and Leno

    i dont think leno is funny at all, and is a terrible interviewer.

    i love letterman and everythign about him...so dry and great when it comes to interviews.

    conan is very funny but the show gets stale to me because it is so predictable and always the same thign over and over again.

    i think craid ferguson is great and have recently watched him instead of conan when i watch tv that late....i really liek hwo he does about 15 minutes of real standup in every show as opposed to corny monologues.
     
  6. Actually I kind of prefer the Daily Show and the Colbert Report.
     
  7. ooh, i forgot about the daily show.

    different beasts, but defintely great.

    gotta love colbert
     
  9. Well, besides the Daily Show and the Colbert Report (which I absolutely love, especially Colbert), Conan's my favorite. I do enjoy Letterman too, though, but sometimes he's a bit too slow for me.
     
  10. im not a big fan of colbert to be honest. much less..... "classy" than stewart.

    guess that's why i love him, oh and he's much funnier than stewart.

    here's jim gaffigan (the hot pocket guy)and conan o'brien doing the great show pale force.


     
  12. I am not a big Late Night Show fan, but I make an exception for Conan. His stuff is just hilarious.

    I only get Leno, Letterman and Ferguson, my preference in order:

    Ferguson
    Leno
    Letterman
     
  14. We don't get Conan here but he has bands performing so I guess I like 'em.

    But my fav is who's line is it anyway if that counts.
     
  15. Leno!

    Conan is my favorite, then Leno. I usually fall asleep during Carson. This seems like it would make a good poll.
     
  18. Singapore.
     
  19. In order, I like:

    Colbert
    Conan (can't wait till he gets the Tonight Show)
    Daily Show (I still miss Corddry, but am a big Rob Riggle fan)

    I'm neutral towards Leno, but I rarely find Letterman funny.

    Kimmel kills all of the above! He the only one doing edgy material any more, all the rest are censored hacks IMHO. The best new host, Spike Feresten, only gets 1 night a week currently, but I expect that to change.

    But different things make different people laugh I guess...
