Conan vs. Letterman

So Conan has had a few weeks to find his groove in the new slot and Dave has been able to garner some much needed attention with all the Palin stuff. So far it looks like Letterman is able to hold the total viewership lead by holding onto CBS' better rated lead-ins but Conan is pummeling him in the more important demo breakdowns. I'm not sure how this all plays out but I suspect in the long run Conan will again get the Tonight SHow back to the clear top of the heap.

My question for my Path brethren is who do you prefer and why?

I used to love Letterman but he has increasingly become just a bitter old guy who likes to generate feuds and use goof humor that isn't all that funny. Meanwhile I have become a huge Conan fan. His type of humor slays me regularly both on Late Night and now on the Tonight show. He also seems like about as regular a guy as there can be in his type of position. Plus his guests are better (including the historically better guests on the Tonight Show in general).

I prefer to go to bed, who the F stays up and watches this crap every night. I might catch the opening but after that good night.

Re: Conan vs. Letterman

The glory days of the late night wars are long gone. Neither show pulls in impressive ratings anymore. Too much competition out there for viewers, and I think the late night format has grown stale.

Re: Conan vs. Letterman

Letterman in his prime was better, i think right now Conan has the edge.

This is exactly how I feel about it. However, if they had peaked at the same time, I'd probably still give the edge to Letterman.

Re: Conan vs. Letterman

If I'm watching tv that time of night it's normally Sportscenter, but if I do decide to watch a late night show I watch Conan. He's been the most consistently funny late night personality the last few years in my opinion and I've never really been a fan of Letterman. In the end though none of them compare to Johny Carson.

Between Conan and Letterman though, Conan 10 out of 10 times.

I second this. Don't people need sleep?

Re: Conan vs. Letterman

Letterman peaked in about 1987. He's old and angry and ponderous now. He seems to be really disconnected from the material. At times I wonder if he even understands the premises of the jokes he's reading. Conan needs to learn to be a better listener with his guests. That was Carson's secret. He seemed to actually be interested in what people had to say. I watch Charlie Rose to findout what the Liberals are telling each other.

And what do you watch to find out what the homosexuals are telling each other? Or are they covered under the liberal umbrella?
