Suck it, Leno

Jay Leno returns to 'The Tonight Show' tonight after having successfully chased off a better comedian and host, Conan O'Brien. If there is any karma in the Universe, Leno will fail miserably. Horribly. He pushed Carson out before he was truly read to go, and he pushed out Conan when he failed miserably in primetime.

Conan is one of the funniest people I've ever seen. He "gets it". Wherever he ends up, he'll be successful. Leno, on the other hand, I have never understood his appeal. He's not funny. To quote Billy Crystal, he's neither fun, nor funny.

Don't believe me? Check out Conan on 'Inside the Actor's Studio". You can find it on Youtube. If you get through the first ten minutes and haven't laughed out loud, move on.

In the interim, please, check out David Letterman tonight. Or the Sham-Wow guy. Just don't watch Leno.
