I’ve not ever really been a fan of Leno and really wasn’t into it when he took over the show. But against my own negative opinion, he’s done his schtick and done it successfully for the past sixteen years.
But in my mind, he’ll never be the king of late night that Carson was.
And I wonder if his departure will be anywhere near as classy?
Remember Bette Midler’s appearance on the second to last Carson show? Memorable. She made Carson cry…I was watching that night.
In case you don’t remember or are too young, YouTube is there to pick us up.
Unsure that Conan will do much to fill the shoes of Carson, or even Leno.
Hard to watch. So I won’t.
Ah well, watching that vid brought back some happy memories. Ah the magic of YouTube.
If you are a GenX’er and REALLY want to sashay down memory lane, try out this one…link love to NewMexiKen for this voyage in the wayback machine.
