Today marks the 60th Anniversary of the Tonight Show on NBC. The show premiered in 1954 with comedian Steve Allen as the host. He was followed by a series of hosts including Ernie Kovacs, Jack Paar, Johnny Carson, Jay Leno and now Jimmy Fallon. Carson held the position for 30 years from 1962 to 1992. Believe it or not, I actually have played a very minor role in the show’s success under Jay Leno.
