Synopsis >

Johnny Carson € s departure from the € Tonight € show was an abdication. Jay Leno € s last show, on Thursday, was closer to a retirement party -- a bittersweet send-off for a loyal executive pushed out after 22 years. € It € s fun to kind of be the old guy and sit back here and see where the next generation takes this great institution, € Mr. Leno said about his successor, Jimmy Fallon. More gamely than convincingly, he added, € But it really is time to go and hand it off to the next guy, it really is. €
