the more that fact and legend become intertwined.

October 9, 1967
Doc Severinsen replaced Skitch Henderson as musical director of "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson." 

October 15, 2007
Drew Carey debuts as new host of The Price is Right. 

Comedian and actor Drew Carey takes over hosting duties on The Price is Right, the longest-running daytime game show in television history. Carey replaced Bob Barker, who retired at the age of 83 after hosting the show for 35 years.

To quote the Bicentennial Minute, "And that's the way it was".
