#16244: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1969-12-01, NBC, min.
Johnny Carson, Bob Hope, Jaye P. Morgan, Truman Capote, Robin Morgan

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.

Guests: Bob Hope, Truman Capote, Jaye P. Morgan, Robin Morgan

A look back at 25 years of David Susskind OPEN END & THE DAVID SUSSKIND SHOW. David Susskind and his wife Joyce Davidson Susskind reminisce and play clips of past shows. David, remembers the very first show, premiere of the movie "The World of Suzi Wong," which in his estimation was a "disaster."   
Discussed is the oldest surviving kinescope, a December 1958 broadcast with Ben Gazzara, Adolph Green, Betty Comden, Lawrence Harvey, Julie Stein and Patricia Neal. A 90 second clip of that show is heard.

Susskind remembers fondly the "How to be a Jewish Son" broadcast with Mel Brooks, Harry Truman's appearance in 1961, and Nikita Khrushchev's appearance in 1960. Other shows are remembered related to topics about nuns, prostitution, Viet Nam War, five swinging hair dressers, others, including one with Norman Mailer, Anthony Quinn, Maureen Stapleton and Truman Capote.

David Susskind sums up his 25 years of talk, and states in all that time he missed only four shows.
