Johnny Carson Last Night

Did you see Johnny Carson last night? It's so great to be able to ask that question again. For years that was the question the next day in America, and thanks to Antenna TV, that question is once again relative. So, did you? Having worked on the Featured Guest Series, I'm quite familiar with the show that aired last night, January 01, 1982 as it's included on Volume 10. Watching it on TV last night, the poignancy of a show from New Years Day in 1982, really hit home. I think Antenna TV did a great job, picking this show as the first one. However, I think the even bigger treat for me last evening was the hour of TV that Antenna TV programmed before Johnny Carson. At 10pm The Jack Benny Program from October 22, 1963 was shown featuring a very young Johnny Carson as his guest. Johnny joked, played drums and even sang and danced! I'd never seen this show and was truly amazed, talk about classic TV. Following the Jack Benny Program, Antenna TV aired Heeere's Johnny, a look at The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson with new interviews with Jeff Sotzing and Doc Severinsen and more talking about Johnny and The Tonight Show. A perfect primer for the first night of Johnny Carson on TV. We'd love to hear what you thought of last night, so leave us your comment and looking forward to Tonight!
