It's funny because Leno is obviously the one who's demographic includes old ladies and men. He's the ultimate neutered, broad-appeal late night host.

Not a fan of late night shows in general but I think Conan's alright and Ferguson from what little I've seen. The only good late night is obviously when Norm MacDonald is a guest.

This is close but I'd switch Leno and Letterman...Leno is so bad it hurts.

Back when Conan had his old show though he was on top and it wasn't even close....Triumph the comic dog was arguably the greatest character produced by late night comedy.

The same way they have people from their own TV shows or films that are released by NBC Universal on their two shows to promote it. Especially with the investment NBC has made in hockey.
And NBC has the Sochi Olympics coming up in less than a year so you'd think they'd want to promote that also with Patrick Kane.

FWIW NBC/Leno did have the entire Blackhawks team on the show very briefly after they won the Cup in 2010...

This is almost definitely true if for no other reason than there were what, like 12 channels on television when he was going strong? Expectations weren't exactly sky high.

Yeah, that's all I'm getting at here. If every other show that's not on an NBC owned channel wants to have someone from the team on, that's awesome. But I thin it would be in NBC's best interests to have someone from the Cup team, or the whole team, come on to Leno and Fallon, simply because they're NBC's two big late night shows. It will promote hockey, the NHL on NBC (which they've invested a billion dollars into) and also, as you said, the upcoming Sochi Olympics.

Unfortunately, the only way I see that happening is if the Rangers win the cup (not unfortunate for me because that's what I want, but unfortunate for the promotion of the game) simply because they're the biggest US market in the league.

I just think NBC is missing the chance to promote the sport that they've heavily invested in and formed a whole sports network around. They should have players from the Hawks parading the cup around on Leno, Fallon, the Today Show and any other of their big talk setting shows. They have all these channels and shows at their disposal, why not take advantage of it?

Indeed.

Seeing Craig Ferguson with the Cup would've made my year. But I guess Letterman's better than nothing...

Ferguson is the best late night show.

Letterman isn't the funniest, but he has pretty good interviews

Isn't Letterman the one yelling "Hit Somebody" in the chorus of the iconic Zevon song?

Kane wasn't a comedian or anything but isnstantly better than the entire Kings team last year on Kimmel. Jeez sounded like a bunch of robots.

Although I don't understand the water part.

Pretty much this, although I think Letterman is the next funniest after Ferguson. Both of them are unbelievable at interviews.

Fallon is better than Conan? Fallon is like a 12 year old kid who is too excited sitting next to a celebrity.

Conan is the best but Fallon is good. He's very creative and is willing to try a bit that might bomb. A lot of times he does bomb but at least he's not playing it safe. He's like the opposite of Leno.

Jimmy Fallon laughs at his own unfunny jokes and has one of those faces that you just want to punch

Letterman is great. Kane looks creepy, maybe it's his youthful looks and hairstyle. Also he was quite boring on this show, I think he forgot to bring a sense of humor.

I actually like Fallon a lot more than Conan and I used to be a huge Conan fan. Ever since his NBC fallout he hasn't been the same and the fact that he's always making jokes about hockey being unpopular has made me not care to get into his TBS show (which I watched for the first few months and wasn't impressed). Conan tweeted "It's quiet in LA today, reminds me of when the Kings won the cup" and Dustin Penner replied "I guess being on TBS you would know what silence sounds like." Conan got destroyed by Penner on that line.

Fallon is very talented and his impressions are very good and he's not afraid to take chances. I like his excitement because he seems like a genuinely nice dude and not phony. The two best IMO are the later shows, Ferguson and Fallon. It's ironic now that a couple years after Conan got thrown off the Tonight show, now they're giving it to Fallon.
