    Jay Leno Out, Conan Replacing Him on "The Tonight Show" on 6/1/09

    Whether he likes it or not, Jay Leno's got a date for his final Tonight: May 29, 2009.
    NBC today set the calendar for the funnyman's mandatory retirement as part of a timetable for the network's rejiggered night-owl plans.
    Heir apparent Conan O'Brien will be installed as Tonight Show overlord on June 1. O'Brien will abdicate his Late Night desk in the spring, most likely March or April, and move from New York to Los Angeles to prepare for his new duties.

    BOOOOO! I love Jay Leno, there is no reason to force him off, he's funny! I can't stand Conan, he's never been funny which is why he's on much later and should stay there!!! I'll stop watching late night at that point!

    I like Conan's brand of absurd humour though I'm not sure how he'll fare on the Tonight Show. It'll probably be Conan-lite. My favourite is still Craig Ferguson - he's a natural with his guests.

    I listen to Jay Leno every night. I can't stand Conan O'Brian. I hear Jay Leno may have a program on ABC. I will be switching with him.

    I think Jay Leno did a great job but I like Conan too (maybe better).

    I hope he does well.

    Conan gives me the creeps. I'm in bed by that time anyway, so I really don't care. Jay's like my ole' buddy though. I really like his personality.

    I like Jay but I have never seen Conan, so I don't know. Jay is like comfort food if I'm upset. I don't want it exciting and mixed when I need to think about sleeping and if Conan is too stimulating I will switch.

    I really don't understand how Conan got the Tonight Show. No one I know in real life thinks he is funny at all. I find him unbearable to watch. I'm not upset over the change however. NBC hasn't had any good shows in years, imo. I hope Jay Leno can find a better network. It shouldn't be hard. In my opinion, anything is better than NBC.

    Yep, I prefer the L.A. based comedians, soon as Jay is over I switch off Conan in favor of Craig!

    i think this is a good move in attracting people in their late teens, early 20s. conan's very popular amongst that age group !!!!!!

    You're right, ttrachel04. I LOVE Conan, and I think most of my friends do, too. I do love Leno too, but I'm really looking forward to Conan taking over. Then I don't have to stay up until 1:30 to see his show!
