The good news: There is no good news.
The neutral news: Robert DeNiro was his first guest.
The bad news: NBC gave Conan O'Brien forever to perfect his show.
I never found Kimmel all that funny. I can't explain why, so it's probably just for something small, but he comes off grating as hell. When he laughs, it doesn't ever seem sincere. Conan can do the most obnoxious laugh and you still find it genuine.
Craig is good, but his show is so bare bones, he really can't even be mentioned with the big boys. Usually subpar guests and no real skits. He just kind of talks. His only escape from that is reading emails and I mean, if you have to resort to that, you know you're not working with much.
Carson Daly is okay I suppose. He's just too trendy for me, though.
When he laughs, it doesn't ever seem sincere ... re: Kimmel, he is a straight up entertainer, and that coldness is ever-present.
Yeah, Carson, I just don't ever watch.
Johnny Carson, however, was a true HOFer.
That guy was, for the most part, comfy/mellow during my childhood years, his twilight era ... but he was such a badass at the business that his generic lukewarm twilight years were like what Jay Leno would only dream of having. I always liked Carson's personality, and you see some similar behaviors in David Letterman to that of Carson.
David really loves interviewing the people, and I also think that's why they go fucking crazy on his show. See Madonna, Joaquin Phoenix, and a laundry list of others.
