Which will be the bigger joke? Leno, O'Brien or their shows?

Fans of Jay Leno and Conan O'Brien will be happy to hear, they're coming back with fresh shows on January 2nd. But will fans really be happy? A better question is will they laugh? Leno and O'Brien are suppose to be comedians, but most, if not all of their material comes from writers. And they are, of course on strike. So this will be a true test of Leno's and O'Brien's comedic abilities. O'Brien is already trying to lower expectations and quiet hecklers. He issued a statement yesterday saying "of course, my show will not be as good. In fact, in moments it may very well be terrible." The fact that O'Brien is willing to put that on paper makes me wonder why he's make so much money. The only contract information I could find for O'Brien is he made about $2 million in 1997. Leno makes an estimated $27 million. That's an awful lot of money for someone who expects to bomb on national television.
