Jimmy Kimmel is awesome

Postby Mookie4ever » Fri Jan 15, 2010 1:03 pm

I don't know if you are up on the late night wars. I really couldn't care less and don't know what is really going on but I love all of the Jay Leno bashing. The funniest is Jimmy Kimmel

First Kimmel impersonates Leno for Kimmel's entire show (youtube video blocked in Canada so you have to find it yourselves).

Then last night he is as a guest on the Leno show hilariously ridiculing Jay to his face. Link I couldn't see an earpiece with somebody feeding him lines so Kimmel is pretty quick witted.

Conan was good the other night too. "I just want to say to the kids out there watching: You can do anything you want in life. Unless Jay Leno wants to do it, too."

I didn't think Kimmel's impersonation of Leno was that good, but that video you posted was pretty awesome. :-b

I haven't seen the video, but I read the transcript from the Kimmel appearance and it was great. Kimmel was ruthless. I haven't followed this whole thing all that closely, but I'm guessing Conan ends up on Fox and Leno takes his aging and shrining audience back to the Tonight Show.

I've watched a few episodes of the new George Lopez show. I think he is going to surprise a lot of people and sneak up on them in the ratings. Some funny S#!t ;-D

This would be my guess too.

what's funny is that despite the poor ratings Lenos show was making money for the network, but all the local affiliates were complaing because it was hurting their late night news numbers...

95% of Leno's value is tied to the Tonight Show brand, which is why his lame spin-off show failed. The NBC execs are dumb if they don't realize this. Conan's popular enough to stand on his own pretty much anywhere.

Pretty sure Conan's Tonight Show was getting killed in the ratings at 11:35 by Letterman.

Not so. Letterman didn't get Jay's audience. Conan lost the audience and they didn't tune in to Letterman, they just turned off the television. I predict a baby boom in 4 months.

This was from an article in September:

Jay Leno defended his "Tonight Show"successor in an interview with Tavis Smiley Monday.

Leno said that the attention to Conan O'Brien's ratings woes is "the exact same thing I went through when I took over from Johnny [Carson]."

"Whoever has the job goes through this," Leno said. "It's all part of the growing pains. [Ratings go] down for a while and then [they come] back up again. And I don't think it's fair to judge Conan on what's happened in a month or two....I got beat up for four or five months, and you still go out with your chin up, fight the good fight."

Since taking over from Leno, Conan has seen the "Tonight Show" ratings go from first in the late night ratings to third, behind both CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" and ABC's "Nightline."

"Conan was number one for 17 years in a row in his spot," Leno said. "OK, he moves to another spot, it takes a while to find yourself, and that's what hes going through.



lol, "chin up."
