Most of you know of Johnny Carson’s passing on Sunday. Though it was Letterman that defined my late night talk show viewing habits, it was Carson’s Tonight Show that first introduced me to the format.
I invite you to watch a small montage of Johnny’s appearances on Dave’s show. Click here for the file. If you are wondering if there are any clips of Carson on Jay Leno’s show, none exist. Carson never made a guest appearance on Leno’s show, a telling statistic for which TV host he held more dear.
