Best news I've heard all day.

I can't stand that big-chinned freak.

I'd heard a few weeks ago that Conan was considering switching networks to get an earlier time-slot sooner.

I wonder if there was some sort of pressure and/or compromise to get Leno to retire a little sooner than he'd planned.

That is great news!  My wife and I are big fans of Conan, and I'm really happy to hear he's getting the gig next.  I laugh outloud every single time I watch his show I think.  Its too bad it is a ways off though.  We've never really watched Leno, although I guess I don't really have anything against him.  Just not all that interested in watching him really.  He does seem like a nice enough guy though.  Still enjoy a little Letterman now and then, but Conan's the best I think.  Anyways, great news, thanks for posting.

I've been watching Conan since the 7th grade.

5 more years is nothing.

I don't mind Leno but then again I usually don't watch these late night shows often.  Ok, rarely if ever.  All I know is I don't care much for Letterman.  Conan is ok I suppose.   Plenty of Irish redhead jokes to siphon from.

While I like this announcement, Leno is a tad bit underrated. His opening Monologue and second segment are always funny. Then he just turns into "Meh" after that.

If they could combine Leno's first two segments with Conan's show...

And what will happen with Eubanks and the band?

Anyone watch Conan tonight?  Lucas is going to be on in like 5 minutes...but he was just at ILM and did some pretty funny stuff on blue screen.

Pretty funny stuff and the video at SW.com is good too, check out JD.com's front page if you want a link to that...

I liked his Q&A too.

The whole Conan replacing Leno is good news if it comes to fruition but I hear it's not gonna happen that way and Leno won't walk away from a cash cow like that and his ratings will almost guarantee an offer for him to stay.  If Conan remained the same though, I'd much rather see him at 11:30 than his current slot...  I have this odd feeling his show would change if he did get the Tonight show though for some reason.  Leno's just horrid to listen to and uses lifted material pretty much throughout his show.

To be honest I usually don't watch any late night TV anymore and listen to my Sirius radio to catch up on what I missed in the day, so I'm talking out my butt.  I would be more inclined to watch Conan though than Leno...  I catch the Daily Show next day so it's not in the running.

I can certainly handle Conan in Jay's slot, though I still wish Conan was contributing to the Simpsons.

Gotta claim I enjoy Leno.  The first two segments are all I really watch anyway.  Sometimes I'm so tired I don't even get through the monologue...comes from keeping up with  kids all day.

As for Conan, I don't watch him very often (see above) so I'm not too sure on him.  But, I have been able to watch in the past and I love the Walker clips that he puts on.
