Jay Leno, good riddance, or will you miss him?
It feels like dejavu, Leno is retiring from the Tonight Show. Last time out poor Conan got screwed royally. Are you happy to finally see Leno go? Do believe he will go quietly, or is he simply wiping Conan's blood from the blade that he will soon plunge into Jimmy Fallon's back? Remember, NBC will not renew his contract, but that does not preclude him from appearing elsewhere!
I've never really cared for Leno. I did watch "Tonight" for the brief time that Conan was hosting, and he did indeed get screwed.
I find Jimmy Fallon irritating so I won't be watching "Tonight" with him either.
He can be funny, but I never watched him that much. I've already switched to Arsenio, glad to see him back. Based on the interview I saw with Leno and his wife, the bitterness was palpable. He actually said he wasn't ready to leave and would stay if NBC wasn't ready to put Fallon in the seat. So your observations are correct in that he could pop up anywhere with a knife in hand.
I never minded Jay Leno, but I do think Conan is funnier. But that whole blow up made Jay look bad in the end. Yes, it was the fault of NBC, but he could have stood up for Conan and refused to retake the tonight show. Honestly, I think he will pop up elsewhere, on something that is less stressful. After leaving his show, Larry King got a smaller interview show on Hulu, so I suspect Leno will do the same. It seems that the bigger late night productions are slipping away in favor of the shorter ones like the Daily Show and Colbert Report.
I stopped watching when Carson left. I never really enjoyed Jay's brand of humor or the sound of his voice.

Do you think Fallon will replace Leno as well as Leno replaced Carson?Leno had one hard pair of shoes to fill and did a good job of it. But I'm not so sure if Jimmy Fallon can do the same. What do you think?
