For many years, people could count on tuning in to late-night TV to relax and kick back for a pleasant time watching “The Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson. He hosted the show for 30 years, taking the reins after Jack Paar left the show. It was a showcase for and about the entertainment industry. Guests from show business, politics and sports could talk about their latest projects and ideas. From veteran comics to hopeful newcomers, all were welcome and subject to Johnny’s jokes. To watch Johnny Carson was to hear about what was going on in America.
