When was judith blegen on the tonight show?

Answer judith blegen

I don't remember when exactly, but I do remember her on the show. I think she was on more them once and probably late sixties and seventies. She was wonderful. In fact, I have never forgotten her from that show and it is the reason I finally decided to look her up on the web. She had a beautifully clear voice, but her speaking voice was a little bit stained.


Judith Blegen appeared many times on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson from 1975 to 1985. You can go to www.johnnycarson.com (under the 'Did You Know' heading) and search her name. It will then give you all the dates she appeared on his show. You should also get the name of the piece performed in the show summary notes.

Was Conan O'Brien kicked out from the Tonight Show?

*Update: 01/21/2010:

After a lot of negotiating Conan has agreed to leave NBC in an agreement signed at about 1am PST today. Conan is reportadly getting about $32 Million and about $12 Million for his staff. Jay Leno will take over his old show at the 11:35pm time slot.

* Several news agencies have reported on 01/15/2010 that Jay Leno will be taking over the Tonight Show, again. Conan O'Brien is reportedly leaving NBC for good, his legal team is working on a deal to have NBC pay O'Brien a large settlement, and make him available to work on any other network. While O'Brien leaving has been confirmed by many sources, NBC CEO Jeff Zucker is reportedly trying to uphold O'Brien's contract by keeping him off the air for the next 3.5 years, not only off NBC, but off any other network(s) as well.

Many other night hosts including David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Creg Ferguson, even Rosie O'Donnell, have been vocal about the NBC fiasco. Jimmy Kimmel appeared on The Jay Leno Show with the following joke/statement: "I think the best prank I ever pulled was I told a guy once that five years from now I'm gonna give you my show, and then when the five years came, I gave it to him, and then took it back almost instantly. It was hilarious."

However, this NBC feud has been reported as more of an attributing fault of Jeff Zucker, rather than Jay Leno's. Several news articles state that Jeff Zucker's Wikipedia page has been under constant vandalism state by Conan fans, who keep stating that Zucker died.

----

* Conan will be leaving on the 22nd of January 2010. He wasn't fired, his ratings have been low and NBC said they'd be moving him to a slot after midnight EST. Upset with NBC's actions, Conan has decided to leave.

----

* In detail, at first, NBC pitched O'Brien the possibility that the Tonight Show would be airing half an hour later because of his low ratings as a starting host. O'Brien refused to consider such terms, henceforth NBC used that instance of disobedience as a reason for the statement of his unwillingness to uphold his contract and set the cancellation date for O'Brien's role in the Tonight Show (01/22/10).

Did the blue man group appear on the tonight show?

Yes. I remember them doing a bit with paint soaked tennis balls that they were smashing on their head in a choreographed juggling manner. This was when the show first opened so I'd have to guess 92-93.

What happened to jay Leno the Tonight show?

Jay Leno's Contract with NBC expires in Dec 2009. NBC would have to renew their contract for 2010 and so on. NBC did not like being placed on a compromising situation like they had when David Letterman left to CBS. So to minimize damage control, and not give Jay the power for a ridiculous demands (A new chin?) they decided to remove Jay's star power by pre-emptively putting him on the bench and giving the Tonight Show to Conan O'Brien. Jay's last day on the Tonight Show is May 29,2009

Was john Denver kicked off of the tonight show?

Yes! I remember watching it. It was such an awkward yet "Go Johnny!" moment. John Denver was making comments against Jehovah Witnesses, I forgot what exactly. And Johnny Carson interrupted him and told them that he had friends and people who worked for him who were Jehovah Witnesses and that they were some of the nicest people he knew. Then he told John Denver that he'd appreciate if he left his show. When he left, the audience was like dead quiet, and then they applauded.

I believe John Denver had many issues with the Witnesses but the most obvious one was on the flag salute.

The alleged incident is an urban legend. John Denver was both a host and a guest on the Tonight Show several times. Other than this legend, I've not found any evidence that he and Johnny Carson ever had a falling out. Furthermore, I have not found any evidence that Denver had hard feelings towards Jehovah's Witnesses. Please go to snopes.com for the explanation behind this and similar urban legends about celebrities allegedly having a beef against some religious or racial group and the righteous talk show host who kicked the celebrity off his or her show. All such stories are urban legends. I have tried to correct this answer in the past. Answers.com continues to post erroneous answers in support of the legend as the "best" answer to the question.

Ask yourselves this: if an incident such as this had happened on a nationally broadcast talk show watched by millions of people, wouldn't millions of people remember it, not just your crazy cousin or a co-worker who is obsessed with conspiracy theories? Wouldn't there be video or pictures of the incident? Wouldn't there be archived news stories of the incident? You wouldn't have to come to Answers.com to get an answer to the question. If the incident had really happened, there would be evidence from reliable sources all over the Internet.
