This book focuses on the Tonight Show situation where Jay Leno left, then returned. However, given the landscape of late night is poised to change once more with the retirement of Letterman, the change in venue for Fallon and Colbert and the recent announcement of retirement by Ferguson, this book is still relevant. Many of the players that were active when replacements were being sought in the 2009 shift are once again in the forefront of discussions these days. This is an interesting, candid look at what happens "behind closed doors" in the world of late night.
