#16405: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1970-08-31, NBC, 5 min.
Johnny Carson, Doc Severinsen, Bette Midler

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall. Sadly, very few complete "Tonight Show" broadcasts survive during Johnny Carson's first ten years of broadcasting. Around 1965, through the early 1970's, oldest tapes were first erased systematically by orders from myopic NBC executives, to be recycled for purposes of saving money. Ironically, in many cases, these older master tapes were too brittle, and portended probable drop-outs for re-use after being erased. Subsequently blank after being erased, these older questionable master 2" Quad tapes were either sparingly used or never used again for recording new programming and eventually were discarded. Saving thousands of dollars at the time (wiping master tapes for potential re-use) resulted in losing millions of dollars by NBC in today's marketplace, and more importantly wiping thousands of historic TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts, which contain precious personal anecdotes from political, show business, and sports icons of the past.

NOTE: Johnny's opening monologue includes cross talk with Doc Severinsen, and their appearance in Las Vegas, their flight back to New York, and the hot weather that he has returned to. Carson states "I saw a sparrow pick up a worm today with a pot holder." Carson mentions that on the show tonight (he gests) is Nanook Jorgensen, the first Eskimo to have a sex change. Carson states that Bette Midler is here on the show, a gal who is a little strange."                                                                         
#16554: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1971-02-16, NBC, 7 min.
Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, Bette Midler

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall.

NOTE: This TV audio air check only contains the opening seven minutes of the broadcast, including Ed McMahon's opening mentioning who will be appearing on tonight's show, Johnny's complete monologue, as he remarks about Rona Barret, Milburn Stone, jokes about Burbank, poor weather LA has been having while The Tonight Show is being broadcasts from California, the gas wars currently going on, and his observation that people never walk in LA like they do in New York.
 
Johnny mentions that one of his guests, Bette Midler, is on the show and she is a "Weird young lady, but a great singer."
