  • We will not likely see Johnny Carson's quality of entertainment come again. The 30 years of the NBC TONIGHT SHOW with Johnny were simply fantastic. His humor and humanity and rapid wit brightened every broadcast.

    Steve Allen got the show started on the right foot. Jack Paar gave it a more "newsy" flavor and Johnny Carson made it his own brilliantly funny program. Thankfully, many episodes exist on tape and "Best of" material is available on DVD today but nothing will match the experience of having lived through the Carson years. Even after a tough day at work, Carson could make us viewers forget our daily woes and put us to sleep each night with a smile on our faces. Carson was a gifted entertainer and there are none today that come close to his wit, charm, style and humor. He was a gem.
