Forget Leno

Hey guess what everyone?! Jay Leno’s back! At the 9:00 slot- its a whole new show! with a monologue and skits and guests!…Oh…its his old show, just earlier. One notable moment from the premier last night: Kanye apologized for his antics Sunday night.

Basically, I don’t care that Leno is back- I think the late night world was just fine without him, and I wish he would just leave it to my favorites, Jimmy Fallon, Craig Ferguson, and of course, that crazy red-head Conan.

Let’s start with Fallon- (watch for my fav clips of Craig and Conan later on) On SNL, Fallon was always the first to giggle in a skit, and he still giggles on his show, like when his friend Will Ferrell is a guest, but mostly, he seems to have grown out of it. Haven’t given Fallon a chance on late night? Here are 3 of my favorite moments

1) Robert Pattinson vs. Daniel Radcliffe.

  1. I’ll never stop watching Ferguson, but thanks for trying! I think he’s just so smooth in his goofy way. I love that its usually just him and the camera, w/o skits, for the whole hour, and he’s still captivating. Plus he doesn’t rehearse, so the interviews go wherever they might go. My FAVORITE Craig Ferguson clip. It might just be b/c I think Zooey Deschanel is adorable:

  2. I didn’t want to embed that video. Skip to about 2:45 and wait until he brings out the shark puppet.

    Jimmy- Craig is actually my absolute favorite too- I usually catch Jimmy’s stuff on his web-site. Thanks for the clip- I’m doing a post about my favorite clips from Craig in a few days- I’ll tweet you when I do!

  4. Cool, thanks! The one that really hooked me was when he got serious and talked about his drinking problem. Not sure if that was the same one where he talked about Britney Spears, but they’re both great, and straight from the heart.
