Conan O'brien vs David Letterman: who is better?

Conan O'brien

Side Score: 19
VS.

David Letterman

Side Score: 9
3 points

I'm more into Conan. I acknowledge that he CAN seem annoying sometimes from doing the same stuff over and over, but almost every time I watch him, I laugh anyways. And I laugh watching his show more than I do any other talk show hosts. Mainly because most humor I find is in the body language and facial expressions more than the speech.

Conan is better because I dislike Letterman because he expresses his political views way tto much in my opinion.

BINGO

I was waiting for somebody to say that. He is so one sided, and I'm not just saying this because I am conservative.

See Conan isn't afraid to make fun of democrats. And he's on NBC so you know he has balls. (;

I was watching Letterman a few weeks ago and this boring old man was on the show talking about Obama's plan for the auto industries, or something like that. I was like what is this!?

+ Conan's hair is way cooler.

Conan is just more funny. I like letterman, but he's just a bit stiff at times. Plus I hate lettermans sidekick musical talent.

Ever since I first saw Conan I have loved his style. Maybe he is a bit more immature and gimmick-oriented than Letterman, but I just generally find him more entertaining. It's really just a matter of personal preference.

I'm definately all about Conan O'brien. The great thing about Conan is that although he is a goofball (which I love!) he really has an incredibly inteligent sense of humor. He has by far the best chemisty with his band and announcer. The bottom line is that I would watch him even if he didn't have any guests on the show. I definately cannot say the same for Letterman. I use to watch his show now and then, but it was really only based on you who guests were on that given night. Same with Jay Leno. Not to mention that their bands and announcers are completely boring. They just aren't that entertaining to watch for me. Conan is full of energy, and can keep me laughing consistantly for an entire hour.

I looove Conan. The new show is great. The only thing that bugs me is the design on the wall during the monologue. I loved the old set, so maybe I'm just being stubborn.

Aw the new set RULES.

I always liked Conan but I wasn't really a consistent viewer of late night. If I was I would probably be part of the stubborn crowd. I hate change.

The new show rules I watch it every night. ((:

Letterman is just to political for me. He talks politics to much and he makes me angry. Conan makes fun of everyone, not just republicans.

Conan is a sophisticated and smart wit with genuine humility. He has class, too!

I used to enjoy Letterman--20 years ago--but he is just a cranky old tool for the big-government left wingers--and I'm not even a Republican. He embodies the hypocrisy of that whole movement. Yuck!

Are you kidding me? To me, this isn't even close. Conan is sharp, quick and hysterical! It actually is a bit like watching the younger, less jaded, and more fun Letterman of yore. I feel like Conan (who has been at this for a long time) is still just getting going and the best is yet to come. Letterman is more like a guy counting down the days until he retires.

I watch Dave now and then to catch a guest, but I also get agitated at his one sided politics (and I am a centrist).

I love the camaraderie and chemistry between Conan, Andy and the band as well. Keep it up guys!

Side: Conan O'brien

Conan O'Brien is better even though he is probably going to leave NBC. David Letterman is just a idiot.

I think Letterman is much funnier than Conan. Conan does a bunch of goofy skits that are entertaining sometimes, but most of the time they just annoy me. Letterman is much wittier and off the cuff funny, so I prefer his show.

Side: david letterman

Letterman is absolutely hysterical, and I love the history behind this guy. I've been watching his show for years, and only got into Conan last year. I love Letterman, and will always remain true to him!

I always find myself watching Conan until I see Letterman is on.

For some reason David Letterman just always has something different on and Conan can be a bit monotanous at times. So all in all I watch Conan O'Brien but I prefer Letterman most definately.

Side: david letterman

Letterman is a combination of comedy styles...old and new. I think that's why he's made it this many years. I remember him in stand up and he was hilarious then. When Jay Leno took over the Tonight Show, I was heartbroken but Jay did well these 17 years as the head of the most watched TV Late Night show and he always mixed it up well. O'Brien is a bit too quirky for my taste but he was in line for the gig and he's got it now. I wish him luck but I think he wasn't groomed for a show like this. We'll see and in the meanwhile, I wish him luck.
