We say Now that we know Dave is staying at CBS, it’s time to ask the question: Why do more viewers watch Leno’s ”Tonight Show” when Letterman’s ”Late Show” is so clearly superior? Maybe it’s a lowest-common-denominator thing: Leno goes for only the most obvious gags, so he makes people feel smarter because they can guess the punchlines. And don’t give us that old Dave’s-too-cranky argument. In the aftermath of his heart surgery and Sept. 11, Dave has radiated a hell of a lot more warmth than NBC’s animatronic joke machine. So go ahead, America — stay with Jay. Dave’s still our fave.
Winner Letterman
