Reynolds answered questions and helped field phone calls from viewers watching at home during the episode. “I have to tell you, Burt,” Dr. Ruth tells Reynolds at the top of the show, “… that since you are the sexiest man in the country, it makes perfect sense for you to be on my show.” The good-natured, occasionally boisterous Reynolds who jokes throughout the episode, flashing his sly smile, giggling with that unmistakable laugh of his — tells her that he doesn’t know if he’s the “sexiest” man in the country, but that maybe he was in the “top ten.”
- The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson 03/12/92: Opening and Burt very LAST appearance on the Tonight Show during his success with the award winning TV Series “Evening Shade”.
