Team Conan or Team Leno?

I'm not really team either one. I've seen both of their shows, but I'm not a regular viewer. The same goes for Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson, the one that used to host MTV, and that one that used to date Sarah Silverman. I only watch if a celebrity that I stalk love is on, and even then, I DVR it and fast forward through all the monologue and junk to get to my fave celebrity. You won't catch me staying up late to actually view it when it airs because I am a crusty old lady that eats my dinner at 3pm, then plays with my cats, then soaks my feet while I watch my Pat Sajak program, and then goes to bed at 7pm.

It might be dangerous to say this, because it seems like if you don't:
(A) hate Leno with the fire of a thousand sons
(B) think he is an evil mastermind, plotting world domination
(C) think he's blackmailing the NBC executives with some sex scandal dirt
(D) think he is the devil incarnate
then you must be an idiot, because clearly Conan is superior in every way.

But...I actually, kind of, maybe, don't mind Leno so much.

I think Kelly Kapoor from "The Office" says it best

There has been crazy drama about all the late night talk show hosts lately and frankly I could not be more bored. What do Leno, Letterman, Kimmel, and Conan all have in common? They're old. Their combined ages are more than 100! It's time to give America what they want: Carson Daly at 11:35. Carson's credentials are top notch. He hosted TRL, he's hot, he's cute, and he dated the likes of Jennifer Love Hewitt (before she was old), Tara Reid (before she looked like a clown), and Christina Aguilera (when she was still "dirty"). I bet he slept with a lot of other girls too. Maybe he'd talk about it? Or maybe he'd do his monologue with his shirt off. That would finally be good late night TV! Anyway, screw the ugly old men, go with the hottie. Or if not, Jimmy Fallon is not like completely barfalicious to the eyes.

I do not hate Jay Leno, nor do I think he's evil. But I'm am 100% Team Coco on this one.

Of course, I don't watch any late night TV, either. I don't even DVR episodes with celebs I like. So I doubt my opinion matters.

I do hate Leno with a thousand fiery suns.

I LOVE Conan. I saw his show in NYC in 2000, when he was popular, but not uber popular.

Leno reminds me of that lame teacher in high school who thought he was hilarious, but all the kids just maked fun of him because of how not funny he actually is.

I can't watch any of them. I just like watching clips on websites the next morning.

I love Conan and I've totally been Team CoCo all the way. I didn't hate Leno until this whole thing started. I understand that it's not personal and it's business and blah blah blah. But he's in for a rude awakening when he doesn't immediately go back to being #1 at 11:30.
