Yet another reason to be jazzed that Conan - someone with humor, tact, and sensitivity - will be taking over sooner rather than later.

I agree with both comments.

Why on earth did Jay Leno treat Ryan that way? It's really despicable. Does he routinely insult, embarrass,and harass his guests? I don't know because I never thought he was funny and don't watch his show.

Now I hate Jay Leno even more than I already did.

I don't watch Leno, so I wasn't aware of his history of anti-gay issues, but my immediate upon seeing the name of the guest was, "Hmm, I wonder if Jay was trying REALLY hard to keep the focus off Ryan's new movie, which looks to be a realistic view of the daily stress dealt with by our military right now?"

Maybe I'm being over-analytical. I'm sure Leno is a bigoted jerk, but if he was actively trying to keep "Stop Loss" from being promoted, that just increases his ass-hattery exponentially.

oooo! I was too busy feeling sick but I like that angle.
Actually very stereotypical way to attempt to distract attention from something by appearing to be attacking/calling attention to something else. If you need a movie reference, all the way back to the attempt to crush CITIZEN KANE'S release (because of its obvious-at-the-time commentary on Hearst) by saying that Orson Welles and the writer were gay.

oh man, I hadn't thought of that. :( that just adds a whole nuther craptastic dimension to it. as if it wasn't craptastic enough already.

You know I read it, was offended and then tooled about some more on the internet, and kept wondering why I felt so queasy. Damn thing made me sick to my stomach. I hate people.

I don't often watch Leno, but I did that night, and was completely annoyed with Jay. Not only with Ryan and his OLTL role, but then with the commedienne, Lisa (something) and her size. He referenced it at the top of the show, then continually throughout. What a loser.

I still miss Johnny Carson.
Damn.
Tom Synder was good too. Doubt if anyone will remember he once had a talk show.
Double damn.
Conan- he's cool.

All the rest can bite me.
