Can't believe this hasn't made the rounds in here yet...
It really caught me off guard when I heard about it yesterday - I had no idea his health was deteriorating.
End of an era, no doubt. :heart:
Thanks for posting this, John!
First of all, I'm feeling old when I see how many people I've talked to don't even know who he is! :shock:
Secondly, it was odd that they had just been talking about him quite a bit recently, reporting that he had been submitting a lot of joke material to David Letterman.
He was absolutely one of the greats of television and I still don't believe anyone has stepped into a late night roll that is even close to filling his shoes.
i agree...i remember him, but i was young...rest in peace.
Old enough to have seen him while still on-air and appreciate what he did for late night and many stars career's, young enough to not know specifically what this means to many of our parents, human enough to still care either way.
RIP Johnny :salute: :cry:
I got one of those age lists that makes rounds on the internet, kind of like the 80's one that voodoocat posted, but it was geared toward middle school teachers. One of the things listed on there was that Jay Leno is the only host of the Tonight Show that these kids have ever known.
They showed a little bit on Channel One (12 minute newscast which subscribing junior highs and high schools receive on a daily basis) and I imagine the kids were probably thinking "Who's that?"
