#753B: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE: SUBSTITUTE HOST, HARRY BELAFONE
1968-02-06, NBC, 25 min.
Johnny Carson, Zero Mostel, Ed McMahon, Harry Belafonte, Nancy Walker, Ken White

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. 

In 1968, America was embroiled in protests over civil rights and the Vietnam War. In that tumultuous time, “The Tonight Show” host Johnny Carson turned over hosting duties for an entire week to actor and activist Harry Belafonte. His cast of guests included Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy, just months before they were assassinated, during a week that’s been mostly lost in American history. 

NOTE: Only 57 total minutes related to all five 90 minute broadcasts survive as video (Dr. Martin Luther King, appearing on the fourth night, and Senator Robert F. Kennedy appearing on the first night). All other programming was erased by NBC shortly after the airing of these five programs on color 2" Quad Video Tape. Archival Television Audio, Inc. has archived audio recordings, taped off the air during the first two broadcasts (Feb. 5, and Feb. 6, 1968) totaling 80 minutes, 53 minutes of which are unique...erased by NBC. 

This second show of five consecutive broadcast nights. Joined in progress.

Ed McMahon introduces Harry Belafonte who sings "Rock Island Line." Belafonte reads comments from Johnny Carson regarding his opening night. Harry and Ed McMahon discuss events. Harry Belafonte states what a privilege it is to be hosting The Tonight Show and the feeling of power sitting behind Johnny's desk.  Belafonte narrates home movies of his recent vacation with his family to Jamaica. He lauds  his friend Ken White water skiing at Cyprus Gardens. Movies of his wife, six year old daughter and son. Harry states that he loves this vacation location because it is the only place where he does not get "bugged" for autographs. Ed McMahon does a live commercial for Peter Pan Peanut Butter. First guest Zero Mostel is introduced. He tells Harry Belafone that he is glad to see him hosting The Tonight Show. He talks about his performances in Fiddler On The Roof. Commercials are telecast including Nancy Walker for Dow Bathroom Cleaner, Compose for nervous tension, and Fleishman's Corn Oil. There is a promo for The Fred Astaire Show special to be televised on NBC.   

At the time, Carson’s pioneering late night variety show had become one of the country’s most influential platforms. So the move to have Belafonte take this mainstream institution and transform it into a multicultural and political experience, introducing white America to his world of art and activism, was unprecedented.

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.
