Trivia

On 28 March 1974 rumors that 'The (1962) Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson' was to be assaulted by a "streaker" became a reality when show writer Pat McCormick dashed across the stage naked at the end of Johnny Carson's monologue. Johnny was completely taken by surprise by the sight of the 300lb McCormick running naked in front of the audience. See more »

Art Fern: How do you get there? Let me tell you friends, how do you get there! You take the San Diego Freeway to the Ventura Freeway. You drive to the Slauson Cutoff, get out of your car, cut off your Slauson, get back in your car, then you drive six miles till you see the Giant Neon Vice-Squad Cop.

Johnny Carson, His Work Will Live On
5 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For thirty years Johnny Carson's tonight show defined main stream late night television. For thirty years main stream was a very good thing. I think that the fact that his show hasn't been on since 1992 makes us realize what we have truly missed. Fortunately a lot of his shows have been saved. In the beginning his guests included Groucho Marx, Jack Benny, George Burns, Buddy Hackett and many others too numerous to list. In the end he was discovering the talents of Jerry Seinfeld, Roseanne Barr, and Drew Carey. Bob Hope of course was pretty much on his show through out. Thirty years with thousands of quality guests and thousands of quality laughs, that is his legacy. An unmatched legacy indeed.
