Johnny Carson had so much more class than Leno. I watched Carson from my early
teens to mid-40s. Quit watching Leno because he was too crass and vulgar. I
didn't appreciate his politics either but that was minor in comparison to
the other.Letterman isn't much better. Too bad. Late night TV
talk shows USED to be entertaining.
Anybody but Letterman.
I stopped watching years ago when I realized it just a big infomercial for the
other wings of the entertainment conglomerate. It would be nice to see
something thought provoking but no one in Hollywood would dare try something new
and innovative because the bottom line would suffer in the short run. I just
wonder when Leno will return to bail them out again?
I was hoping that NBC could come up with a more controversial and informative
style program to replace the Jay Leno Hollywood glamor hour than this wanna be
no talent Jimmy Fallon. When you grew up with the best of Johnny Carson and his
predecessors who took on the world and debated with intelligent and meaningful
world class guest, it was hard to give the Leno/Fallon regime any credibility
for being a program to stimulate intelligent community service.It
would be nice to have a more intelligent style program to stimulate the young
into more intelligent and meaningful lives where more thought processes are
needed. Its time to give the new generations something to do and think about
other than entertainment as a way of life and having a productive sense of
accomplishment.NBC is taking a big risk to keep Hollywood fiction
with the dozens of shows already on dozens of channels devoted to Hollywood
glitz. They should convert back to more educational and thought provoking
intelligent wit and humor of the world we live in. There is more to intelligent
entertainment than Hollywood stars who don't challenge the mind or provoke
thought in the audience.
