Did You Know?
Brandon Tartikoff approached Rosie Odonnell in 1994 about hosting the Tonight Show once a week, on Fridays, as Joan Rivers had done for Johnny Carson. She gleefully accepted; but then got word later that Jay Leno was vetoing the idea because he did not like to take days off. He did not ever let there to be any guest hosts on his program during his reign on the Tonight Show. When an interviewer asked him why he responded "Are you kidding me? That's how I got my job".
