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?
The Tonight Show's previous host, Johnny Carson
, never once appeared on successor Jay Leno
's show. Carson did, however, appear twice on rival late night talk show Late Show with David Letterman
(1993) (in a walk-on appearance soon after Letterman's show debuted, and later, in a filmed sketch). In the years following Carson's "Tonight Show" retirement, he reportedly contributed jokes to Letterman's monologues from time to time. See more
