Ellen has the potential for a really great show but I find that far too many of her interviews are really short in length which is irritating for a Talk Show. Apart from that I think she's the best at day time.
Although Leno's monologues are impressive in length, generally he does the nice guy thing which anybody can do. For nearly 25 years at Late Night, Letterman has presented a very specific and not always very likeable character, which I find far more interesting to watch than Leno's often bland presentation. Some people love him, like me and others hate him. Conan is up there too for 'attitude'. I think Letterman and Conan would both hate people to feel apathetic about them.
