Howard Burns

The man was made for his times. He was the perfect complement to Johnny Carson in late-night. His early '80s interview with Ted Turner still ranks among the best one-on-ones in TV lore. Pairing him with Rona Barrett was one of the first signs of the apocalypse. RIP, Tom.

Howard -- So true, his success had a lot to do with the times.

Today, his guests would be trotted out in accordance with their movie premieres, book launches, etc. And Tom would be expected to explore those products with his guests.

Having someone on a talk show solely because they are interesting is so not 21st century TV.

Thanks for the comment.
