#15868: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON: 6TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW
1968-10-01, NBC, 70 min.
Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, John Lindsay, Bert Parks, Joan Rivers, Bill Cosby, Sammy Davis Jr., Tiny Tim, Shirley Temple, James Drury, Doug McClure, Don Rickles, Jack Webb, Ed Ames, Norman Rockwell, Roddy McDowell, Joan Fontaine, Mr and Mrs Richard Rodgers, Darryl Zanuck, Paula Prentiss, Richard Benjamin, Don Piccard, Charles Addams

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 1970s, the 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

Joey Bishop is the host of this week-night-talk show originating live from Hollywood. The announcer and sidekick is Regis Philbin. Johnny Mann conducts the orchestra. 

The ABC Late Night chair had previously been occupied by Les Crane when the show was called THE LES CRANE SHOW, and later by a succession of guest hosts (when it was called NIGHTLIFE).

Bishop gave it a two & half year run but he was never able to beat Johnny Carson in the ratings, and in late November 1969 Joey was fired by ABC. Bishop had one more month to fulfill with the show but decided to walk out, a similar deja vu moment on TV when Jack Paar walked off his TONIGHT SHOW 13 years before.  

Dick Cavett then took over the ABC late-night seat after the final JOEY BISHOP SHOW which aired December 26, 1969, closing out the decade of the '60s. 

Guest: Don Rickles.

#1070: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1969-04-29, NBC, 60 min.
Durward Kirby, Johnny Carson, Alice Faye, Victor Borge, Don Rickles, Irwin Corey, Just Us

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.

Johnny Carson's guests are Don Rickles, Victor Borge, Irwin Corey, Durwood Kirby, Alice Faye, and Just Us.

#16491: DAVID FROST SHOW, THE
1970-11-04, WNEW, 54 min.
Bill Dana, Ed Sullivan, Clark Gable, Don Adams, David Frost, Don Rickles, Hal Frazier, Akim Tamiroff

July 7, 1969-July 14, 1972 (SYNDICATED). During the three-year run of his American talk show, David Frost taped the show (approximately 750 programs) each week, Monday through Thursdays. The series was syndicated by Westinghouse.
Sadly almost 300 or these original telecasts (recorded on 2" Quadraplex Video Tape, were wiped and are now considered forever lost because myopic executives considered these programs as ephemeral, and did not envision these broadcasts as viable future money makers. They also failed to realize the historic significant importance of these interviews and opted instead to recycle the master reels saving not only space in storage but as a value concept of not having to purchase a new $500 video tape for other broadcasts to follow. 

First question by host David Frost is how both Don's first met, followed by a myriad of topics including early childhood memories, early jobs taken, the initial night club years, including recreating part of the act Rickles did doing some of his early impressions of Clark Gable and Akim Tamiroff. 

Don Rickles remembers his impressions when first visiting the UK, and Frost is good natured when being mimicked by Rickles regarding certain English customs. Don remembers working with Clint Eastwood on a picture filmed in Yugoslavia. 

Don Adams discusses his character Maxwell Smart form his series Get Smart and how such character began to rule his real life mannerisms and behavior. Other Don Adams anecdotes, include working with his dear friend and partner Bill Dana, and how the phrase "Would You Believe" first evolved. 

Protégé singer Hal Frazier is discussed by Don Rickles. He sings "Those Are My Favorite Things."

Don Adams and Don Rickles share memories when each served in the military. Adams further discusses his penchant for collecting and reading Military History and his admiration for Robert E. Lee. David Frost introduces outtakes from an upcoming TV Special with Don Rickles in scenes satirizing the classic movies, The Jazz Singer, and Prisoner of Zenda. 

Both Don's express the admiration for Ed Sullivan and relate anecdotes about him. Further anecdotes about both Don Rickles and Don Adams wives. Adams mentions that he is awaiting the adoption of a child and mentions his fear of flying and his past relationship with a stripper.     

Dupe of 7036
