    Enjoy watching Kimmel, Fallon (when I can make it up that late), and Conan (my favorite of the current hosts), but really get a kick out of seeing some of the Carson "Tonight Show" shows. Actually saw one in person back in 1977. What a treat!

    Thanks for sharing!

    This is a stretch. After Johnny Carson retired, I stopped watching tv talk show programs. An entire generation of hosts that I know nothing about.

    thanks for the history tidbits.
