Late night TV has not been the same since the departure of THE LATE LATE Show with Tom Snyder. It ran until 1999, before they change hosts. I never had the privilege of watching The Tomorrow Show, except in the odd youtube clip, but I watched him most nights on The Late Late Show. He actually could carry on a conversation with his guests, and had some interview skills. He wasn't some comic that doesn't want to be on tour, he was a serious news man. There are some great interviews by him on youtube go check him out.
I hope he is serving up the colortini in the great beyond.
