Sorry Conan, But I Already Pinkie Swore My allegiance To Jimmy

I bet you've all been waiting on the edge of your seats to find out where I stand on the Leno vs. Conan situation.

You're patience will now be rewarded.

Leno or Conan, Jay or O'Brien, old or kind of old...... what to choose, what to choose???

Neither. I pick Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon is fresh, current, and reminds me of the glory days of SNL when Tina Fey was at the writing helm. His spoof of the Twilight/Rob Patz phenom and "The Real Housewives" series are brilliant. Add in that he has the only real band in all of late night (the amazing Roots) and you have the best talk show on all of television.

My apologies to Letterman, who was blatantly left out of the entire debate. When he stops having Regis or Kelly Rippa on every third night I might toss him a bone and throw his name back into the running for best baby-boomer entertainer.

Update: Jimmy had a Beatle on last night. For the entire show. If that was the only card he held in his deck he'd still win the hand. But, don't be too sad Leno fans- you've still got Ross the Intern.


  1. i like jimmy too, wish he were on earlier. i like leno but not the new show format.

  2. I do love Ross the intern. He is always on Chelsea Handler and is way funny!!
