He was also my boss on “The Queen Latifah Show.” It’s amazing to learn that he got his first job by cold calling the infamous Helen Kushnick of the “The Tonight Show.” Todd gets into detail about his the early chaotic days of that show. It’s the truth behind “The Late Shift.” (Ok, the book was pretty close.)
