Watching Carson was appointment television. You tuned in because you didn't want to miss it. I can't say that about the current seatwarmer hosting the show. <br><br>Also, Johnny made stars.

So sad ! From MSNBC<br>The day the music died” was February 3, 1959, when Buddy Holly’s plane crashed outside of Clear Lake, Iowa.<br>The day television died was May 22, 1992, when Johnny Carson hustled out of a Burbank studio, leaving tear-soaked cheeks, 30 years of memories and a void that could never be filled.<br><br>Like music, television carried on, but it was never quite the same again.
