    Since Leno is into the last year of his run, now is as good a time as any to say it: I've always found the Leno-era Tonight Show rerun policy of running shows from the last couple weeks to be annoying and insulting. If we just watched the show two goddamn weeks ago, why would we want to watch it again now?

    At least during the Carson era, they dug back into the vaults to get shows farther back, usually with some kind of quality-level concept in mind. That way, if a rerun came on, it was actually sort of interesting, because even if you had seen the show, you didn't remember all the dialogue word-for-word. Plus it was interesting to see the monologue and show dialogue deal with events which were hot stuff a year or so ago, and are now nearly-forgotten.

    Hopefully Conan, when he takes over, will go back to that policy (once he's got a few months' backlog built up to choose from). In the end, I don't really watch any of the late-night shows hardly ever (working half the time, no interest the other half) so I guess I really don't care. But considering how seldom I watch the shows, it's especially irritating when a rerun comes on of the same show only a week or two later.

    I love Ferguson. At first he annoyed me, then he started to wear on me. Now I prefer him.

    It must be brainwashing. :eek:

    The recent rerun policy is the way they do business now. All of them.

    Hated Kilborn, but haven't warmed to Ferguson, either. I was an old school Tom Snyder fan and also appreciated the contrast of having a completely different approach at 12:30. No band, no audience, no desk, no silly sitcom star telling pre-planned stories. Used to love it when Snyder would have extended interviews with people like Harlan Ellison and Ray Bradbury.

    I like Ferguson. He grows on you once you start watching. His first few shows when he first started were, literally, hard to watch, especially the first sketches. But he's gotten better with time.
