I looooooooooooove Carol Burnett. I have three of the DVD sets they have been releasing.

I never got to stay up for the Carson show, but I always looked forward to the prime time anniversary shows they did.

That's cool.

Johnny Carson was like a grandfather figure. Kindly, old, and I saw him every night before getting ready for bed. It was my first late night talk show. I don't even remember who was there just before him.

Hehe, I guess so. We watched all our TV shows together. Heavy lean in my favor until 10pm, lol.

That's nice.

I wasn't allowed to watch late night shows because my parents thought there'd be something inappropriate.

I like him, but he's a lot slower than current Tonight Show. He spends more time interviewing and his monologues are longer.

I guess Jimmy Fallon is keeping up with today's fast-paced lifestyle.

Yep. Back then a talk show meant "talk show". Lol. He did lots of skits though. It just wasn't in every episode.

Hehe, I like the talk sometimes, but some of the guests are boring after a while.

I watched an ep where Chevy Chase was on. He was promoting Funny Farm. Loved that Funny Farm premiered in theaters on my birthday.

That's cool.

I saw an episode from 1992 and in his monologue Johnny was talking about Donald Trump. "He's always in the news. You can't escape it." How nothing has changed!

No publicity is bad publicity. Gets the name out there.

Unless that name is connected with nothing but bad publicity and makes people hate you and want nothing to do with you. Lol.
