QUOTE –
“Jerry Seinfeld: You know for my entire career, I’ve heard comedians in bar debate over who do you think is going to get the tonight show after Johnny leaves. What nobody realized is that when you left, you are gonna pack it up and take it with you – which is what he did. Because that show never existed again. There never was a Tonight Show…It was Carson.”
