    Conan! He's so outrageously funny. Corn rows and orange tan - that was the last dare he took. wink

    I've always loved Letterman, since I was a kid.  Back then Johnny Carson was still around, and Letterman seemed like a madman compared to Johnny.  He'd toss things off buildings and bring in people to do all kinds of crazy stuff.  One time he dressed in a velcro suit and bounced off a trampoline and stuck himself to a velcro wall.  Back then Letterman was one of the edgiest guys on TV.

    I think he calmed down a little, but I also think the rest of the late night world caught up with him.  He's still funny, but the stuff he does isn't so out there anymore.  But as far as I'm concerned Dave is still the king.

      I agree, Letterman appears tired to me. I also cannot stand the fact that the audience applauds everything he says. Just my opinion.

    You missed the best one…Craig Ferguson. This show is so far left of centre, it is off the map. There was one tweet mail he read on the show one night, concerning their move to a new studio. The writer asked him "since you are moving to a better location, does this mean you are actually going to rehearse" That says it all. the show gets off track so often, it's as though there is no show!! Fantastic!!!

    Jimmy Fallon is cool, Conan is funny, Jimmy Kimmel is hilarious, and Craig Ferguson is a genius.

    Not all of them make it down to Australia - or, at least, not on free to air television, anyway. But, I've had some exposure to most of them.

    Craig Ferguson and Conan O'Brien are my favourites, though I can't give any real reason other than the fact that their style of humour just matches up with mine. Jay Leno - well, I have no idea what he does that makes him so popular, but at least he's inoffensive. David Letterman annoys me, though.

    Any others floating around haven't really made enough of an impression down here for me to have an opinion.

    All of them are pretty weak with tired, old jokes that they don't even write for themselves.
