#548: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1963-11-11, NBC, 25 min.
James Stewart, Ed Wynn, Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon

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 James Stewart and Ed Wynn. Ed McMahon is co-host.

Roosevelt; the comedy duo of Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, better known as "Amos 'n' Andy"; the Kraft Music Hall, hosted by Bing Crosby, which showcased the great singers of the 1930s and 40s such as Arthur Tracy, Morton Downy, Helen Morgan, and Kate Smith; Frank Sinatra, who was brought into the public eye through radio; Bing Crosby, who sings "Pennies From Heaven"; John Scott Trotter's reminiscences about the big bands such as those of Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, and Spike Jones; how television began to make strides with the telecast of the New York Worlds Fair in 1939 until World War II put an abrupt stop to the advancement; how the very popular Milton Berle was responsible for the television revolution after the war was over; a survey of other pioneering programs including "Kukla, Fran, and Ollie," "Your Show of Shows," "I Remember Mama," and "Howdy Doody"; a day at the studio with big-time television producer Sheldon Leonard whose credits range from the slow-starting "Dick Van Dyke Show" to "The Gomer Pyle Show"; Godfrey, who sings "I'm in Love with You Honey"; a look at the great comedy teams and solo comedians such as Abbott and Costello, Burns and Allen, Fibber McGee and Molly, Jimmy Durante, Fred Allen, and W.C. Fields; the first lady of television, Lucille Ball, who is followed through a day of rehearsal for her show; how radio soap operas paved the way for the radio drama programs such as "Inner Sanctum," "Suspense," and "The Whistler"; how the live drama show became the first step in a new direction for television; Rod Serling's examination of the rise and somewhat quick fall of this form of programming; the We Five singing "Beyond the Sea"; and the great radio commentators such as Edward R. Murrow and Walter Winchell.
