The latest results of the Discover Fan Loyalty Poll are in, and they have provided some very interesting information. While Jay Leno proved that you can go home again in his return to late night television, he also showed that he has the best singing voice of all the late night talk show hosts
Actually scratch that. I have to believe that these results have been produced in ironic fashion. After all, we all know that David Letterman is the true American Idol.
Joking aside, the majority of college football fans who were surveyed would prefer to hear Leno sign the National Anthem at their favorite team’s next home game. The NBC host took 22 percent of the popular vote, with Jimmy Fallon coming in a close second with 20 percent. Apparently, fans would rather listen to a funny man with a bit of a lisp and funny voice over a comedian who implements signing and dancing into his every day stand up act.
Jimmy Kimmel came in third place with 12 percent, with Letterman securing 10 percent of the vote and Conan O’Brien coming in in fifth place with nine percent of the vote.
Just another area where Leno edged out Letterman and bested O’Brien. I guess the beats goes on for the man with the largest chin on television.
Here is a look at the complete results from the most recent Discover Fan Loyalty Poll.
As you can clearly see from the results, Leno had the best showing amongst fans of the ACC and SEC, while he did the worst with the Big East faithful. No surprise that O’Brien did the best there, having been born in Brookline, Massachusetts. Fallon took top honors in the Big 12, with Letterman probably taking the Mid-Majors, having been a proud graduate of Ball State.
Judging by the results, Kimmel will not have to get his signing voice ready any time soon either, as he did not top any major conference.
You have to wonder how these current late night talk show hosts would have done against some from the past. How would Johnny Carson have performed? What about Arsenio Hall? It would also be interesting to see how some of the lesser rated late night hosts would perform, such as Russell Brand. You may not understand him, but I bet it would still be funny!
