I know right now the whole world seems to be in love with Conan O'Brien. And I get it - he seems like a nice guy, he's really funny, and some pretty crummy stuff went down at NBC. I sympathize with the guy, like the majority of America. But I also have a soft spot for Jay Leno. Some of my greatest memories were spent at the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In high school (and a little of college) I went to the Tonight Show as often as I could. I love seeing celebrities in person. I think it's fascinating. And more importantly, it was the only way that my 16-year-old self could get within 50 feet of 'N Sync. That's right. I camped out on the sidewalk in front of NBC Studios to see 'N Sync on the Tonight Show...and it was AWESOME. But I'm getting off-topic. The point I originally wanted to make is - I like Jay. I've seen him in person a lot. And whenever I've approached him with my friends (yep, I've played the role of "fan/stalker" plenty) he's been gracious and patient and always acted happy to oblige. So I'm not saying he's perfect - heck, I'm not even trying to argue that he's funnier than Conan...I just know that whenever I see Jay Leno on that stage, it brings back my Tonight Show memories, and I think that's enough to make me a Jay Leno fan indefinitely.
