Johnny Carson’s departure from the “Tonight” show was an abdication. Jay Leno’s last show, on Thursday, was closer to a retirement party -- a bittersweet send-off for a loyal executive pushed out after 22 years.
I used to watch Johnny Carson very occasionally. Now Jay Leno has come and gone without my ever seeing him. Well, my third boy says he wasn't funny anyway.
