    Jay went a full decade before ever needing a guest host.
    Jay auctioned motorcycles, autographed by various celebrities, and given all of the money to disaster relief funds.
    Jay announced he would retire from The Tonight Show in 2009, during its 50th anniversary, and be replaced by Conan O'Brien. The decision was announced five years in advance, so that NBC could keep Conan on their network, until Leno retired.
    Arnold Schwarzenegger announced his candidacy for Governor of California on The Tonight Show.
    Jay is considered one of the nicest guys in show business.
    While he was on the Michael Jackson Trial, Jay was not allowed to tell Jackson-related jokes, but he was allowed to write them. Because of this, Leno would have a guest comedian come out to tell his Jacko jokes.
