The Jack Paar Show

Show Summary

Tonight Starring Jack Paar began when Jack replaced Steve Allen as the show's host. The title changed to The Jack Paar Tonight Show, then the name was later changed to The Jack Paar Show. Jack's announcer at first was Franklin Pangborn but was replaced with Hugh Downs who remained with Paar for the rest of his tenure. Jack's old army buddy Jose Melis conducted the band and comedienne Dody Goodman became Jack's sidekick. Jack said of himself. "I'm complicated, sentimental, lovable, honest, loyal, decent, generous, likable, and lonely. My personality is not split, it's shredded." He brought a fresh approach and a wonderful interactive manner to his program involving all his guests.

    Steve Allen was holding out for more money when NBC started The Tonight Show- plans had been made before Steve Allen came along, with a new studio and offices in Burbank for The Tonight Show that had been starting construction- Steve Allen got jealous of the new place while he would have had the old place to work in. Months later NBC and Steve Allen agreed to end their contract mutually.moreless
