Jay Leno vs David Letterman

“Leno’s ‘Tonight show’ has widened its lead over chief rival David Letterman, a noteworthy achievement given CBS’ prime-time dominance and NBC’s fading fortunes.” says CNN.

I concur. Leno’s show is sooooo much better than Letterman’s. I had to watch Letterman last week because Leno’s show was on a rerun, and Letterman almost put me to sleep. He is just not as funny or bubbly or charismatic as Leno is. Either that, or he is really bored these days with his job, because his show was much better 7-10 years ago.

Leno’s monologue in the beginning of his show and the ebay/bad-journalist-articles jokes are extremely funny. Letterman’s “top 10” jokes are just boring and fails to create a laugh most of the time.

Conan O’Brien is as intelligent as Leno, but he is over the top some times and he ends up doing the same jokes over and over. In fact, if O’Brien was to take some points from Letterman, that would be an interesting combination to beat Leno’s legacy.

**UPDATE** Just watched the show tonight, BEST show ever! Comedian Dana Carvey and animal handler Steve Irwin were invited. I couldn’t stop laughing, excellent episode!
