  •  Leno is weak, always has been. (8+ / 0-)

    The entire episode when Carson quit and they decided not to give it to Letterman and gave it to Leno.
    Letterman was sarcastic, intelligent and hip.
    Leno was a lap dog stand up, so desperately appreciative and undeserving of Carson's "crown".
    Now enough time has passed, youngsters don't know Carson or the "feel" the Tonight Show once had.
    Leno has been given, not earned imo, what he has. Now he has enough history and money, people think he actually had something to do with the show's reputation etc.

    Letterman was a journeyman stand-up, worked his ass off creating an audience and a show, then was passed over for Leno.
    Told NBC to go screw themselves, went to CBS with his audience and his show and has done fine tyvm.

    I used to love watching Letterman on NBC back in the day, Jon Stewart owes him a certain nod; I have never liked, or been able to stand watching, Leno.

    Could've probably guessed that, though, huh?  ;)
