It’s an interesting time to be the executive producer of a network late night show.

Jay Leno returned to his Tonight Show stomping grounds, making an unannounced cameo during Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue Tuesday night.

Remembering Before ‘Tonight’ Left New York

I hate to add to the tonnage of words speculating on Jimmy Fallon as the post-Leno host of a Tonight show relocating to New York. But I can’t help recalling my early devotion to Tonight back when it, and Carson, called New York home — and how, before Johnny took it West, I attended a taping at Manhattan’s 30 Rock.
