Smile Tonight show without Jay Leno (new host Conan O'Brien)

After all those years of seeing Jay Leno on the tonight show, there is now a new host Conan O'Brien taking over.
So will the show do well without Jay Leno - was it just the script or did Jay Leno really bring something to the show. OR is this Conan guy way way better than Jay, both on the show and off the show with his car collection
I have added a poll on whether the show was good with Jay or is better now with Conan.

Tonight show with Leno was one of the best shows ever.

Late night with Conan sucks, he isn't funny, his monologue is just a way to use up 60 minutes. I don't know how it was on the air for so long.

Everyone is using the same lame technique including Jimmy kimmel

Monologue+some videos+celebs advertising their movie/show = Hit Show

Jay Leno was the show and the fans are going to go to his new show that is coming.

Yeah, Conan sucks royally! But the poll should also have had Johnny Carson, he was the best, though I did like Jay Leno too.

Jay Leno is the best, he is a genuine comedian and is a natural. Conan is a very poor replacement.

Conan o Brien reminds me of Jim Carey. He has make stupid faces in order to be funny. Jay Leno was a natural, his speaking style was just awesome.

Ultimately its the scriptwriters and the jokewriters that will make the show a hit but IMO Conan is a poor replacement.

Thumbs down

I too saw the show with Conan on tv last nite & it was not funny at all. The only guy one saw laughing was Conan himself.

Poor replacement for Jay.
Now waiting for Jay Leno to return to TV with another show.

I wonder how our desi JaY Leno - Shekhar Suman would fare. I think he would be a good replacement.

conan is someone who's comedy will probably grow on you.It was not that bad actually.His reminds me of jim carrey in his early days
yes agreed Jay was a legend in his own way.But thats what the tonight show has being doing.
I would say give conan some time he wont disappoint us.
Jay Leno is coming up with a show of his own actually.I do agree im a big fan of leno and his cars Especially that special Mclaren F1!!

Shekar Suman on Tonights show!! YUKK! i hate that chap.well cyrus wont do that bad.But a big NO for shekar.
