25/05/1992 Jay Leno debuts as host of NBC's "Tonight Show"

Jay Leno substituted Johny Carson, on The Tonight Show, even though it was expected by everyone - including Carson - that David Letterman, who had been hosting Late Night with David Letterman since 1982, will be the successor. The story of this turbulent transition was later turned into a book and a movie.
