The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson was an institution. The late-night show was must-see viewing. Adults would risk a morning of dry eyes and yawning to watch Johnny Carson put on a show. For those who have grown tired of seeing The Tonight Show Starring Conan O’-wait nevermind then this upcoming set may be the cure. Who needs Five Hour Energy, when you have 30 hours of Johnny!
Unfortunately, the announcement doesn’t indicate if they will be complete episodes. I’m going out on a limb and say that the musical performances will be cut out. And if a lot of it is a rehashing of material already found on Johnny’s Definitive DVD Collection from 2007, this release will be a big disappointment. Nevertheless, the press release indicates all-new handpicked material, plus the bonus extras as described above. The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson – 4 Decades of Tonight comes to stores on October 26th. This 15-disc set runs approximately 1800 minutes long and is currently priced at $119.99 using the Amazon pre-order link below.
