Jack’s monologue includes statements that when he first went on the air there were only 40 affiliate stations and now there are 138. 
He remarks how NBC has been very nice to him, and that he will be “staying around for a while.” Jack relates the long hours…nine hours of programming a week, five nights a week…coming home at 2am. Recently, when Jack came home he tapped his daughter on her shoulder and said, “It’s time to get up” and to go to her own bedroom (she would sleep with Miriam her mother). Next thing Jack knows he hears water running in the bathroom, Randy brushing her teeth, who thought that
her dad meant it was time to get up and go to school. 

Florence Henderson sings, “Everything is Coming Up Roses” from the Broadway play, GYPSY. Jack and Hugh converse about second anniversary broadcast moments…Cuba show a year ago, about regulars, including, Oscar Levant, Peggy Cass. Jack Introduces Dody Goodman. They reminisce about first shows, Franklin Pangborn, others. Dody, who with Jack and Hugh do another version fresh satiric version of DRAGNET ( Case of the Missing Cake) which runs five minutes. Genevieve is introduced, who sings in French, and talks about her grateful success because of Jack. Long time friend and Tonight Show panel member, Hermione Gingold and Paar reminisce. Downs reads wires of congratulations from Robert Sarnoff, Robert Kennedy, Virginia Graham, and Marge and Alexander King.

Jack Paar states that “Talking and telling true stories is funnier than any script in the world.”  Relates funny story about his dear friend Alex King. 

Comedian / dancer Harry Nimmo performs, and talks with Jack at the desk. Jack says that he and Miriam’s next vacation will be in Italy where he has yet to travel. 

Introduction of Dr. Franklin Loehr author of “Power of Prayer on Plants.” Jack introduces his dear sweet friend Max Asnas, manager of Stage Delicatessen in New York. 
Florence Henderson sings, from GYPSY, “You’ll Never Get Away From Me.” Jack says good night and signs off. 

*Most of this series does not survive in any broadcast form. Kinescopes were discarded, burned, decomposed...whereabouts unknown. 2" Quadruplex Video Tape was expensive ($300 for a one hour reel), weighting 26 pounds, requiring great storage space. Video Tape could easily be erased and was used for new program recordings...retained briefly for a re-run and then erased or discarded. Legend has it that even Jack Paar himself hired a junk man to come to his home garage and paid to have JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW recordings discarded (reels of kinescopes and video tapes) that were now cluttering up his space. 

During this era in television history archiving television programming was not a primary concern or vision, and considered an arcane pursuit. 

ARCHIVAL TELEVISION AUDIO, INC. retains over 70 complete and excerpt JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW air checks (34 hours), including the complete Jack Paar's first anniversary telecast which was broadcast live from Havana Cuba (June 28, 1958). These originally recorded off the air pristine sound direct line 1/4" reel to reel audio tracks, recorded at the time of the original broadcasts, represent the only broadcast record of a "lost" visual telecast. ATA is the largest single repository (one collection), in the United Sates of Jack Paar Tonight Shows recordings. The combined archives of The Library of Congress, Paley Center for Media, and UCLA Film & Television retain a composite total of 13 hours of representative JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts excerpts, all KINESCOPES (sound quality inferior to originally direct line 1/4" reel to reel home recordings at the time of the broadcast). No COMPLETE intact visual and audio broadcasts survive. There are no extant video taped surviving RECORDINGS of the JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW...not even an excerpt. 

For four years and eight months Jack Paar reigned supreme as host of the TONIGHT SHOW with a crew of regulars, but only two stayed with him for the entire run; announcer Hugh Downs and band leader Jose Melis, a former army buddy. Familiar faces who appeared many times with Jack included Dody Goodman, Betty Johnson, Elsa Maxwell, Alexander King, Genevieve, Jack Douglas; and wife Reiko, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Hans Conreid, Peggy Cass, Cliff (Charley Weaver) Arquette, and Jonathan Winters.

Joey Bishop substituted for Paar 31 times. Arlene Francis, 30 times, Jonathan Winters, 26 times, Orson Bean, 21 times and Johnny Carson 15 times. All together there were 243 broadcasts which had substitute hosts filling in for Paar during Jack Paar's TONIGHT SHOW tenure.

1959-11-10, WRCA, 72 min.
Jack Paar, Hugh Downs, Jonathan Winters, Hermione Gingold, Phyllis Diller, Jose Melies, Richie Delamore, Peanuts Taylor, Katzenjammers Steel Band

July 29, 1957- March 30,1962. 

The first of three shows broadcast from the British Colonial Hotel located on Nassau Island in the Bahamas. Included are filmed segments shot 'on location' to illustrate life and activities of the resort area. 

Hugh Downs opens the show, “THE JACK PAAR SHOW broadcasting tonight from the British Colonial Hotel in beautiful Nassau in the Bahamas..
A thousand miles from Times Square. Jack and all of us are enjoying a holiday in this mid-Atlantic paradise,  a warm and friendly British Colony here in the Bahamas. 
Holidaying with Jack tonight are Hermione Gingold, Jonathan Winters, Phyllis Diller, Peanuts Taylor, Richie Delamore, Jose Melis with his trio and the New Katzenjammers
Steel Band, and yours truly, Hugh Downs. And now here is, by Jove, Jack.”
Jack Paar monologue. He welcomes everyone. Says that back in the States they are investigating television. Here in Bahamas to spread a little good will in this crown colony. 

Jack states that NBC brought 50 people to Nassau to do this show which is seen by 30 million people…one hour forty five minutes…the most unrehearsed show which is part of the charm.

Jack introduces a young boy from Cuba whom he has known since 1943, Jose Melis who performs a number with the new Katzenjammers Steel Band.  Paar introduces Sir Rainier and 
his wife Lady Arthur.  Jack states that this first show from Bermuda is the largest TV show ever broadcast in Nassau. $55,000 for two tape machines, $35,000 each for five TV cameras…crew working four 
days and four nights and all a go until  a “hum” in the audio was detected and it took six hour to determine that someone dropped a dime in one to the TV cameras. Jack and Hugh converse. 
Jack states this is his sixth trip to the Bahamas. Beautiful here, and no income tax. No real estate tax.
Paar introduces guest Hermione Gingold. Jack says he is emotional even when he sees children drawing pictures; he introduces Richie Delamore who sings, “Island in the Sky.”

Jack Paar and Hermione Gingold sing a duet, from GIGI, entitled, “I Remember It Well.”

Jonathan Winters is introduced by Jack who says that he first put Jonathan on television five years ago.
“He is the greatest talent I know.” Johnny does a stand-up routine “The Amateur Show.” Jack, Hugh and Jonathan do a Webster Cigar commercial together, with lots of laughs.
Introduction of Peanuts Taylor, form Nassau, playing his steel drum.  Paar and Winters discuss Jonathan’s new book, “Did Anyone Bring an Opener?” which is a picture book of old time movies,
with funny captions created by Winters. 

Jack introduces a former housewife, mother of five children and discovered by Jack five years ago…Phyllis Diller, who performs a stand-up routine (plastic surgery). 
Jack relates his experiences trying to buy an Island in Nassau. Richard Delamore sings “Hold Em Joe.” Jack says goodnight and states that in December Jet flights will be available to go from the Sates
to Nassau in two and half hours.
