You’re All Looking Forward to Another Late Night Feud

Links: (UPDATE: Of course as soon as I hit the “publish” button, the news became official. Jay Leno is leaving The Tonight Show next spring, and Jimmy Fallon will be taking over the hosting duties. This … this could be awesome. Anyway, this is what I thought when it was only moderately kinda official …) [...]

Late Night TV: Can We Stomach Anymore?

Yup, it’s been almost 10 months since we last saw Conan O’Brien in late night TV. So that’s 10 months that we were subject to the getting-old shtick of David Letterman, the politically charged rants of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert and the decidedly unfunny Jay Leno.
