The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

27 September 2004

Tonight's the night

27 September 1954, New York City. A new television show, and host Steve Allen is warning the audience: "This show will go on forever."

Fifty years later, it looks like Steve was right.

I just wish NBC would do more to celebrate the anniversary of what has been arguably its most influential program.

Looks like you're getting your wish.... NBC apparently will take the opportunity to announce that Conan O'Brien will be taking over the Tonight Show in 2009, with Leno voluntarily stepping down then.

Too bad. I would have liked to see O'Brien take over CBS' Late Late Show, and then take over from Letterman later.
