Fallon's been doing some good bits, but, I've been a Conan guy for some time. Letterman, well, he had his moments.

Because he didn't host Late Night.

Because the NBC show has only been hosted by those 3 people so far, with Seth Meyers coming up.

Since both of the NBC late night shows will be in the same building once can only assume that Jimmy Fallon will get the cream of the crop in "Non New York" guests and Seth Meyers guests might often be a Tonight Show reject. They could easily have the same guests on the same day but that would be weird. I'm guessing that both shows in the same building would only help Jimmy Fallon.

Of the three of them Conan was the funniest in the comedy bits with some great ones but the show kept bringing back a lot of one-time joke characters like that overused bear

Jimmy Fallon's take on the show seemed to rely on a handful of audience participation games that shouldn't have been played again with the same exact same jokes (some didn't seem to have any) repeated from the last time they played it. The best one (because it wasn't an exact clone of last time) was the "Put it in Reverse" game

David Letterman was great back then but he never seemed to do well in many of his comedy bits that required some acting, even the pre-taped ones.

Also, all three of them are still talk show hosts, but on different networks and on at about the same time because of The Tonight Show host changes.
