I was about old enough to know who Johnny Carson was. My favorite was when Alf was on. All I realized was that a puppet was on with Johnny, and had seen Alf in his own show. I don't think that Jay stepped into Johnny's shoes. Jay has just add to the shoes. Meaning the next guy to take over has a lot of work to do. I hope that it's not anyone that already is on late night television. I think the part should go to Jeff Foxworthy. I am sure that whoever it is will give America laughs.
