On August 7, 1987, Jay Leno was the guest on the Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. Johnny announced that night that Leno would be a regular guest host on the Tonight Show on Monday nights and some weeks during the summer. In typical Jay Leno fashion, he made light of his looks by reading various newspaper and magazine headlines making fun of his chin/face, and in the second segment he left Johnny and the audience in stitches talking about his experiences flying on various airlines. It’s so refreshing to watch the sincere and genuine interactions Johnny and his guests.
