I 100% agree with you Jimmy Fallon for the win for sure out of all the others.

I rarely watch late night shows, just because it takes 30 minutes to go through their routines, I just want them to get to the guests :)

I loved Johnny Carson tho! When he would bust out laughing it was always funny, and I always find it interesting that many of his guests would light up cigarettes and have a drink, and back then it was ok, you wouldnt do that today

Love Jimmy Fallon such a talented guy, especially with the music numbers.  I recent ones he did one with Luke Bryan about how to say Gyro and with Lin Manuel-Miranda in a canoe.  I was a fan of Leno but would really just watch his monologue and whatever skits/bits they had that night, not real interested in the interviews.

I must be showing my age too ... I thought Johnny Carson was definitely the funniest.  I do like the current ones but some are getting just a bit too political.  All late night hosts have always poked at the political system over the years but when they focus most of their show on it ... it stops being entertaining.


Rather than rewrite the same basic thoughts, I'll just quote the wise and truthful dwggs and say "ditto". An occasional political joke in a monologue (like Carson or David Letterman used to do) is funny. But pushing a specific agenda like so many of them do today, I haven't watched late night talk shows in probably ten years. I will catch bits online from time to time, but as far as watching them regularly or having a favorite = nope.

I haven't watched any late night shows since Johnny Carson left the air.
Have a wonderful day!

Johnny Carson will always be the king of late night talk shows, in my opinion. I enjoyed him even when I was a youngster. He was never really crass or mean to anyone. And any innuendos of a sexual nature were subtle and not tasteless; just silly.  :silly:

NRAJOE is right when he says it's fun to see people from the past on those old Johnny Carson shows, many of whom are now deceased.  :star:

My favorite now by far is Jimmy Fallon. He's so talented and so funny and sweet. I don't like Jimmy Kimmel at all. He's too nasty for my taste. ::)

Looks like Johnny Carson has it, hands down. When I used to watch him, he was always funny. Now I sometimes watch him on Antenna TV if I need a good laugh. After Carson comes Jay Leno. I watched Jimmy Kimmel once when he first took over for Jay Leno. I don't find him very funny, especially since the presidential election. He's downright nasty and too full of hate. Oh, and that "man show" he used to have...that really showed people who he really was-nasty and loved making fools out of other people. I don't find that funny. I find that mean. Did he hurt animals when he was young? I wouldn't doubt it.

As for the others, don't watch. Usually I watch movies or Perry Mason or Animal Planet shows (depending on the night)..

I never watch the late night shows, if they can't say some thing nice about our President and act like they are the only ones who know a darn thing. I find them all rather  nasty and  disgusting.

I have to be in a particular mood to watch anyone but I have been frequenting James Cordon. The one I like though is Graham Norton.

Like Steven colbert  he's funny sometimes.  Don't like the beginning of these shows so loud. If I think I'm not tired so I'll watch need to find someth8ng else quieter.

I go back to the Johnny Carson days.  Now I don't stay up late enough to watch any of them.  Besides, here in the east coast, they are tooooo late!!!!!!!!!!! :notworthy:

I used to love the late night shows like the jeffersons and Benny hill and all in the family.  So funny and you looked forward to watching.
