And thus... a New Era in American broadcast television will begin.

In commemoration of this historic moment at NBC, MercerJersey.com takes a fresh look at the club of eight (exclusively and perhaps regrettably) men who have been given the reigns to the Peacock's prized pair of late night franchises – through the ever-valuable lens (of course) of Boston Celtics basketball.
