Tonight Starring Jack Paar (1957)
My part of The Tonight Show
I was a guest host 126 times. I also had a half-hour all to myself with the 6,000 people in the audience for 707 shows in Burbank. I had an average of 34.1 million watching on tv, the two highest was the times Louis Armstrong sang a song- Hello Dolly and What A Wonderful World, 46.5 million and 47.4 million respectively. I was offered a 10 year contract to replace Jack Paar but I needed the time to run the Peace Corps, which I did run for a total of 32 years. Johnny Carson called me one day to tell me all the episodes I appeared on were destroyed by him.
Ricky Was NOT The Original Teenage Idol To Me AND Him
After at least 24 songs that I gave him, to be a million seller each, he(Ricky Nelson), asked to me to me to give him a song about me as "a teen being adored" not the private me- "Teenage Idol" is what I gave him on the phone creating it as he listened. Ricky knew me as Kissing Bobby- one of the Beatles said it best about me: "He was, in his time, more loved than Bing Crosby and Elvis Presley and the Beatles and Michael Jackson all put together". I constantly created songs for Ricky to be loved-because he was a very loving person!!!!!
