My part of The Tonight Show
28 August 2018 | by bobbydias-324-562762See all my reviews

I was a guest host 126 times. I also had a half-hour all to myself with the 6,000 people in the audience for 707 shows in Burbank. I had an average of 34.1 million watching on tv, the two highest was the times Louis Armstrong sang a song- Hello Dolly and What A Wonderful World, 46.5 million and 47.4 million respectively. I was offered a 10 year contract to replace Jack Paar but I needed the time to run the Peace Corps, which I did run for a total of 32 years. Johnny Carson called me one day to tell me all the episodes I appeared on were destroyed by him.
