Did You Know?
It's 1962, and Oliver says he wants to stay up late to watch "the new guy", meaning The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson
, which Carson joined in 1962. During one scene when Oliver is watching the show, the announcer is heard saying, "From Hollywood, it's The Tonight Show . . ." For its first ten years, the show originated from New York City. During that time a few of the broadcasts originated on the West Coast; however, the black-and-white TV screen Oliver is watching shows the opening credits with the New York skyline in the background. The show moved to Hollywood (or, rather, Burbank, California) a decade later, in 1972. See more
