                First time ever NBC’s late night leader for 30 years has ever been offered to the international market
THE ORIGINAL KING OF AMERICAN LATE NIGHT TELEVISION
It all began on October 1st, 1962. That night, Johnny Carson started his reign as the King of the Monologue and Late Night TV.
America's classy comedian turned writer turned talk-show host launched his career and the beginning of many others when he
became host of NBC's The Tonight Show.
The night of his premiere comic legend Groucho Marx visited Mr. Carson. In fact, he introduced him.
Five nights a week for 30 years, Carson made us laugh, sometimes, many times, hysterically.
From 1962 to 1992, Carson created his legacy with the show's announcer, Ed McMahon. Together, they defined the late-night
talk-show format
Many of the funniest moments in American television history took place on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show
Launching the careers of fellow comedians Bill Cosby, Steve Martin, Robin Williams through to Eddie Murphy and Jerry Seinfeld,
Carson put the spotlight on more than 24,000 guests over 4000 shows.
From Judy Garland to John Wayne, Fred Astaire to Tom Cruise, John Lennon to Liberace. Magic Johnson to Presidents, First
Ladies. Johnny Carson interviewed them all.
Finally, in May 1992 Carson's teary final episode was taped in Burbank, California.
Forty million people tuned in to say goodbye that night. On that night, Johnny said:
“I am one of the lucky people in the world. I found something that I always wanted to do and I have enjoyed every single
minute of it.
A legend and a Gentleman. Johnny Carson had it all…. a little bit of devil, a whole lot of angel, wit, charm, good looks, superb
timing and great, great class.
