—Hugh Downs: Worked as Jack Paar's second banana on "Tonight" from 1957 until Paar's departure in 1962. Once famously kept the show running single-handedly after the mercurial Paar stormed off the air in mid-show in a dispute with the network. Downs' long TV career includes stints on "Today," ''20-20" and the game show "Concentration." Pictured: Hugh Downs (left), Jack Paar (right) and Jonathan Winters. PBS
