#6978i: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JACK PAAR, THE
1959-01-16, WRCA, 79 min.
Jack Paar, Jonathan Winters, Jose Melis, Don Pardo, Jack Haskell, Betty White, Elaine Stritch, Maury Scher

July 29, 1957- March 30,1962. 

Announcer Don Pardo substitutes for Hugh Downs.
Jack Paar's Monologue includes:
Zsa Zsa Gabor's engagement again...Jonathan  Winters on the show, funniest man I know...Bob Hope, not feeling well...
Jose Melis plays, "Serenade to a Wealthy Widow." 
Author Maury Scher discusses his book "Goldrick." 
Goldrick's ten rules...a potential officer in fatigues.

Jack introduces Betty White whose birthday is tonight. 
Paar remembers when he first drove in LA and in great panic...just staying in a lane was challenging, but not as challenging as driving in New York on the West Side Highway. 

Jack Haskell sings, "Love Look Away." Jack introduces Jonathan Winters, "One of the most creative extemporaneous wits I know."
Conversation between Jack, Jonathan and Betty who receives a birthday musical tribute from the band. Jonathan does a Maude Fricket airline hostess routine with Betty White who later remembers the first time she met Jonathan. 

Jack confesses that he doesn't usually meet his guests before the show goes on. 
Introduction of Elaine Stritch. Jack and Elaine talk. Betty White and Jonathan Winters join in and then suddenly, Jack Paar walks off the show, only to return two minutes later. 

Jack Haskell does another song, "Mr. Success."
Jack Paar signs off. Don Pardo announces who is on the next show. 

*Most of this series does not survive in any broadcast form. Kinescopes were discarded, burned, decomposed...whereabouts unknown. 2" Quadruplex Video Tape was expensive ($300 for a one hour reel), weighting 26 pounds, requiring great storage space. Video Tape could easily be erased and was used for new program recordings...retained briefly for a re-run and then erased or discarded. Legend has it that even Jack Paar himself hired a junk man to come to his home garage and paid to have JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW recordings discarded (reels of kinescopes and video tapes) that were now cluttering up his space. 

During this era in television history archiving television programming was not a primary concern or vision, and considered an arcane pursuit. 

ARCHIVAL TELEVISION AUDIO, INC. retains over 70 complete and excerpt JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW air checks (34 hours), including the complete Jack Paar's first anniversary telecast which was broadcast live from Havana Cuba (June 28, 1958). These originally recorded off the air pristine sound direct line 1/4" reel to reel audio tracks, recorded at the time of the original broadcasts, represent the only broadcast record of a "lost" visual telecast. ATA is the largest single repository (one collection), in the United Sates of Jack Paar Tonight Shows recordings. The combined archives of The Library of Congress, Paley Center for Media, and UCLA Film & Television retain a composite total of 13 hours of representative JACK PAAR TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts excerpts...none complete. 



 For four years and eight months Jack Paar reigned supreme as host of the TONIGHT SHOW with a crew of regulars, but only two stayed with him for the entire run; announcer Hugh Downs and band leader Jose Melis, a former army buddy. Familiar faces who appeared many times with Jack included Dody Goodman, Betty Johnson, Elsa Maxwell, Alexander King, Genevieve, Jack Douglas; and wife Reiko, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Hans Conreid, Peggy Cass, Cliff (Charley Weaver) Arquette, and Jonathan Winters.

 Hugh Downs substituted for Jack Paar 79 times, more than any other substitute host. There were 20 different substitute hosts for Paar over the period of the series run. Joey Bishop substituted for Paar 31 times. Arlene Francis, 30 times, Jonathan Winters, 26 times, Orson Bean, 21 times and Johnny Carson 15 times. All together there were 243 broadcasts which had substitute hosts filling in for Paar during Jack Paar's TONIGHT SHOW tenure. The title of the late night broadcast changed to THE JACK PAAR SHOW which took effect on February 3, 1958. The first video-taped broadcast aired on January 5, 1959. "Best of Paar " Re-runs began on July 10,1959. Beginning July 20, 1959 Jack Paar began taking off Monday nights & guest hosts would substitute for him (approximately on alternate Mondays). The first color broadcast aired on September 19, 1960.
Theme music, "Everything is Coming Up Roses" was first used beginning in the Fall of 1959. 

Location broadcast telecasts of the program telecast away from the Hudson Theater in New York City occurred 14 times during this series run.

#6271: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1974-10-09, NBC, 90 min.
Don Rickles, Carroll O'Connor, Adrienne Barbeau, Betty White, Johny Carson, Landon Smith

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.

Substitute host Don Rickles with guests Carroll O'Connor, Adrienne Barbeau, and Dr. Landon Smith. Features commercials including Johnny Carson for his line of suits & clothing, and Betty White for Betty Crocker.
