I’m not much of a late night TV person these days, but when I did watch, it was always with the classic Johnny Carson. In the episodes I have seen of Jay Leno, I still haven’t quite gotten used to him being in charge, so with the news that Jimmy Fallon may soon be taking over, I can’t believe it’s already time for the changing of the guards. The March 23rd installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker, powered by NetBase, explored the response from Facebook and Twitter users and found that 93% are all for Jimmy Fallon taking over, while 4% want Leno to stick around a bit longer, and 3% made light of the situation with some jokes. I decided to see if anyone else shared my feelings about Johnny Carson – and turns out, I was not alone! Check out some of the conversations below:

@gretawire Re: Leno/Fallon.  We should’ve cloned Carson when we had the chance, no one could ever be better!

The Tonight Show will be replacing Jay Leno with Jimmy Fallon??  Why, that’s like…  like…  replacing Johnny Carson with Jay Leno!

Wishes Jimmy Fallon well with the Tonight Show but truth be told, no one can ever replace Johnny Carson.

So what do you think? Fallon or Leno?
