    Sure Johnny had great talent, but it really is sad to see that the true greatness of Steve Allen could not be recognized by him. i don't think Johnny's luster would have diminished at all had he had the wherewithal to give credit where it was due. Meanwhile Ben Alba has seen to it that Steve Allen remains in the 'Late Night' honor Roll as it's founder….and arguably it's greatest member.

    I never knew that about the Tomorrow Show. I'm sure that Carson didn't want to be upstaged by Steve Allen.
