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.

On one of his monologues for CBS' "The Late Show" talk show competitor Dave Letterman wished rival Jay Leno "A Happy 60th Birthday,." Then he said "His friends presented him with a big birthday cake. He used the knife to cut it that he stabbed Conan in the back with." The monologue is available on Youtube. See more
