Favorite talk show hosts... who are yours now? what about in years gone by?

It's late at night - you've stayed up to watch your favorite talk show host - for me it's Jon Stewart - with his wacky take on the news - 

but in years past I've watched David Letterman - 

and I was never able to watch either Carson, or his heir Leno, and have no idea in the world why that is...

Who are your favorites? and Why??

Jon Stewart and Bill Maher are my favorites.....comedy with intelligent discussions of current events.

Right now I like David Letterman.  He says what it thinks, popular or not.  He has good guests, ie. Chris Christie.  I especially liked when Conanwas on, considering their common experince with Jay Leno.  It was classic!  As for Leno, I liked him as a sub for Johnny Carson, but found him hard to take on a nightly basis. Tongue out Of course Carson is the gold standard.  No one has ever compared to him. Smile

Personally, didn't watch too much of the past.  But after Carson... and currently... hate them one and all. And the worst thing is not only do they have to relate everything to sex -- what they pass off and applaud as music keeps me definitely away.

I really enjoyed Carson, it was a funny show; I don't hate the ones now, they're just not funny. Why they get paid so I don't have a clue.

In the past my very favorite host was Johnney Carson.  He was the funniest and had the quickest wit!  His comeback lines were always hilarious.

My favorite host now is Jimmy Fallon.  I'm so happy that he will be the new host of the Late Night Show in February.  He's not only adorable to look at but he's soooo funny!  I didn't watch SNL so I didn't know him until his late night show.

Jane Pauley when she was host of "Today"   From the beginning until she was cast aside for Debra Norville.  BIG mistake that was.  I stop watching Today and haven't returned.  GMA is the morning go-to-show.   Watching weekday morning was the morning routine.  Her interactions with Bryan Gumbell and Tom Brokaw, etc. was great.  

Glad she's now joined CBS'  "Sunday Morning".

Thanks,

Gary
