The two episodes of "The Johnny Carson Show" I'm reviewing here were a mixed bag
9 June 2010 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

For this review, I'll comment on two episodes. First one was on October 13, 1955. After an unmemorable monologue, Jill Corey sings "I've Got a Crush on You" as she helps Johnny prepare for his first fan club meeting. That fan club consists of three teenage girls wearing glasses that mistake him for Spencer Tracy! Next up is Johnny as a bachelor who tries to join in a party across his apartment but they won't have him so he tries to go to sleep just as those partiers come to his place. Then, finally he's a gypsy violin player who has to deal with a bickering couple at a restaurant. The first and second sketch had some amusements but I thought the last one was just meh. I give that episode four stars out of ten. The episode with the title above has an unusual beginning of Carson laying on a couch listening to a record before showing the audience various albums with gag titles and covers. With the sketch nearly over, famous movie score composer Dimitri Tiomkin-who I know wrote the music for my favorite picture, It's a Wonderful Life-walks through the curtain and offers his services for his score for Johnny which he conducts to audience applause and Carson's pleasure. Next up is a vaudeville skit where Johnny tells of memories of the Bijou in Nebraska and he showcases a man who plays spoons as the headliner and a trombone player who isn't what Carson says he is and has the host trying to stop him from playing by taking the instrument apart but this musician just keeps going without a hitch! Last sketch has Johnny as an ancient warrior trying to take the Trojan Horse with his men to rescue Helen of Troy. They change their minds when they find how big she is! Okay, seeing Mr. Tiomkin was a treat after hearing mostly lame album titles, the vaudeville skit was amusing with the destroyed trombone, and the punchline with the Trojan Horse partially redeems that lame sketch. So at least that episode is worth a look...
