Twenty-Five Years Ago the finale
Twenty-Five years ago today, 50 million people tuned in to see the final Tonight Show that Johnny Carson would host. It would go down in history as one of the most watched television finales in history. And would forever be remembered by fans as the night Johnny said goodbye. Here at JohnnyCarson.com we're celebrating the 25th Anniversary of this historic finale with some special promotional offers for you, the fans, who are still with us after all these years. Along with that we thought you might enjoy this special behind-the-scenes look of The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson from the weeks leading up to the finale, as well as Johnny's final heartfelt goodbye. We hope you fans will turn on an old show and watch and laugh and remember. Things have really changed in the 25 years since Johnny retired. But I'd like to think the classy humor from The King of Late Night has always remained the same, and it's nice to remember.
