  • The Jack Paar Program hosted by Jack Paar began after he left The Tonight Show to host this primetime weekly talk-variety show. Jack featured more topical subjects and films that he himself recorded. His flair for the dramatic and indepth news-like delivery made this program interesting and informative as well as entertaining.
