Johnny Carson show on Antenna TV

Really enjoying Johnny Carson on Antenna TV.  This was glory age of late night TV. The chemistry Johnny had with Ed McMahon was amazing.  Tonight Bob Hope was on. Its fascinating listening to these old programs. This was when comedy didnt need dirty foul language to shine. Loved Bob Hope. Miss the 1970s for sure. Such a simpler time.

I remember watching Johnny Carson way back when. The show was very funny and entertaining. It was must-see TV in our house.

Watching it today has a tinge of sadness. Everyone is dead.

None of the replacements are nearly as funny as Johnny.  He was one of a kind.

@Reever: You're right about that. I watch some of the old shows on cable stations like METV, COZI and watch Kojak, Perry Mason, Ironside, Zane Grey Theater, etc. and think the same thing. Makes me a little sad also. Smiley Sad

Re: Johnny Carson show on Antenna TV

I too enjoy watching Johnny on Antenna now-and-then.  I like that he invited a variety of people onto his show - ordinary people, scientists, kids, and of course celebrities - and had fun with all of them.  Today's late night shows are all about yukking it up with celebrities.
