In 1960, In one of televisionʹs most famous moments, Jack Paar, did something that few television stars have ever done. He walked off the air. The sometimes eccentric, sensitive, but well liked Paar did so at 11:41 p.m. on NBCʹs “Tonight Show” on this night in 1960. TV shows were live (not on videotape) at the time. Paar had started a joke during his monologue about 'WCsʹ (water closets, as they are called in Great Britain). Paar didnʹt say 'toilets', but 'water closets'. This offended the NBC censors, who cut the toilet joke (a total of four minutes of on-air time). Paar was incensed when he found out. So, the next night, he complained about the NBC censors, said good night and left. A shocked audience watched second banana Hugh Downs take over a show that included Orson Bean and Shelley Berman. After predicting to the press that the show would crumble without him, a contrite Paar was back one month later. WITNESS: Hugh Downs recalls, “That was the hottest spotlight Iʹve ever been in.” The audience was kind of stunned, too. He returned on March 7, following a trip to Hong Kong. When Jack Paar came back after a few weeks, his first line was, 'As I was saying before I was interrupted.' Paar didnʹt last long upon his return. A guest host stepped in and ended up with the show for nearly 30 years. The guest host was Johnny Carson.
