Jay Leno was universally hated by many in Hollywood. Leno stabbed Carson in the back. Leno stabbed Letterman in the back. Leno stabbed Helen Kushnick in the back (Leno publicly said he was unable to go to Helens funeral because of the hatred her family had for the way Jay treated her). He stabbed Conan in the back (ABC was interested in Conan for late night) but Leno lied to Conan about stepping aside from the Tonight Show. Leno feuded with Kimmel.

by Anonymousreply 44November 16, 2022 12:44 AM

R42, some of the stuff you say about Conan is actually the fault of Conan's reps. Surprise he didn't fire them. They messed up his contract and should have advised him better about his career. But maybe he didn't want to listen. I really like Conan but he is another one who wasn't right for The Tonight Show. They all wanted to replace Johnny but didn't do his kind of plain folk humor which is what that particular audience wanted.

by Anonymousreply 45November 16, 2022 12:48 AM

R44....Agreed. Letterman had baggage. But you have to remember that Leno was "the nice one" in late night. He actually was the villain. He was always making homophobic remarks...THIS ONE...To Ryan Phillippe (who played a gay teenager on OLTL)..

R46, I seriously doubt Jay is homophobic. I think you can take clips from any late night host and make it seem like they are homophobic. That's because they do so many hours of TV over many years. There will always be something to find that seems controversial.

Craig wasn't given the budget for a live band and his show wasn't promoted. Unlike fat ass Corden.

When my partner's elderly parents were visiting Los Angeles, he took them to see the Tonight Show and meet Jay Leno (my partner was in the biz). Leno couldn't have been nicer. He chatted with them about their visit and showed them around the set before the show. He was utterly charming and made two old people from flyover country very happy.

I've liked him ever since and he must be going through hell right now, the poor guy.

The "solution" in 2004 to have Conan take over the Tonight Show in 5 years time was so idiotic. NBC was crazy for offering it, and Conan's reps were crazy for taking it.

Leno had been number 1 for years and years at that point. He was still number 1 in 2009. This created a awkward, shitty situation for all involved. NBC should've let Conan leave in 2004.

In retrospect, the best thing would've been for Conan to just stay at 12:30 and bleed NBC dry of money to keep him from leaving and going up against Leno. But, there was such luster attached to "Johnny Carson's Tonight Show" Conan just felt he had to have it.

Funny how much late night comedians have ceased to matter. Carson would get 15-20 million viewers on a good night. I doubt that Fallon gets much more than a million now.

by Anonymousreply 101November 18, 2022 7:44 AM

Rumormill says CBS "discouraged" Corden from renewing his contract because his ratings are low and his paycheck (and ego) was too big...Also Chelsea Handler said this past week on Late Night she was interested in doing another nighttime talk show gig. Was that a dog whistle to CBS to call her for Cordens slot? I would watch her over Corden any day of the week.
