After Johnny Carson's retirement from the show, Jay Leno stepped in as his permanent replacement. The format of the show has remained largely unchanged, consisting primarily of an opening humorous monologue, followed by several celebrity interviews, comedy sketches and musical numbers.

Did You Know?
Jerry Seinfeld stood up for his friend Jay Leno during the whole Tonight Show changeover scandal: "What did the network do to him?" Seinfeld asked; referring to critics' complaints that NBC shortchanged Conan during the schedule change imbroglio: "I don't think anyone's preventing people from watching Conan. Once they give you the cameras, it's on you. I can't blame NBC for having to move things around. I hope Conan stays, I think he's terrific. But there's no rules in show business, there's no refs."
