#6967: TONIGHT! STARRING STEVE ALLEN
1957-01-25, WRCA, 87 min.
Steve Allen, Hy Gardner, Gene Krupa, Audrey Meadows, Milt Kamen, Jack Lescoulie, Lionel Hampton, Buddy Hackett, Bob Considine, Jayne Meadows, Peter Lawford, Irwin Corey, George Gobel, Ray McKinley, Doc Severinsen, Earl Wilson, Tina Louise, Micki Marlo, John Crosby, Sammy Davis, Sally Powers, Maggie Pierce, Dorothy Miller, Joe Interleggi, Vic Marcell, Jim Moran, Pat Marshall, Mrs. Sterling, Pat Kirby, Edie Gorme, Gene Raymond, Miki Marlo, Sol Yagid

September 27, 1954 - January 25, 1957. This evenings telecast is the final TONIGHT! show starring Steve Allen. A farewell party is staged. All the regular singers are featured in musical numbers and Steve uses some of the 'gimmicks which found great popularity on show during the 2 1/2 years on air, including the big salami, and goo goo dolls. Steve speaks briefly to some of the men on the new "Tonight" show which starts next week. They include Jack Lescoulie, Earl Wilson, Hy Gardner, & Bob Considine. 

The basic format of The Tonight! Show was established during Allen's tenure: an opening monologue, a segment involving the studio audience (through interviews or games such as "Stump the Band"), and a simple set (a desk and chair for the host, a couch for the guests), all trademarks of the Allen era. Allen inaugurated the out-of-town broadcast (the first one was done from Miami), the one guest show (Carl Sandburg was the first solo guest), and the one topic show (entire programs devoted to such subjects as narcotics, civil rights, and black music). Allen also established the practice of paying his guests only "scale," the minimum fee required by union-network contract (this practice led to a highly publicized  feud between Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan and later between Jack Paar and Ed Sullivan, as Sullivan paid top dollar for his guests). Though Allen's Tonight! show closely resembled the shows of his successors, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson, it was more a musical show; Allen himself was an accomplished musician and composer (he wrote his theme, "This Could Be The Start of Something Big"), and he employed a nucleus of musical regulars on his show. In addition to announcer – sidekick Gene Rayburn, the show featured singers Steve Lawrence (who was only seventeen when he began singing on Allen's local show), Eydie Gormé (who subsequently married Steve Lawrence), Andy Williams (who later hosted several series of his own), and Pat Marshall (who was succeeded by Pat Kirby).  Skitch Henderson led the Orchestra.

1963-07-15, NBC, 29 min.
Johnny Carson, Mickey Rooney, Skitch Henderson, Ed McMahon, Linda Day, Lynda Day George, Doc Severinsen, Adam Keefe

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall. Sadly, very few complete "Tonight Show" broadcasts survive during Johnny Carson's first ten years of broadcasting. Around 1965, through the early 1970's, oldest tapes were first erased systematically by orders from myopic NBC executives, to be recycled for purposes of saving money. Ironically, in many cases, these older master tapes were too brittle, and portended probable drop-outs for re-use after being erased. Subsequently blank after being erased, these older questionable master 2" Quad tapes were either sparingly used or never used again for recording new programming and eventually were discarded. Saving thousands of dollars at the time (wiping master tapes for potential re-use) resulted in losing millions of dollars by NBC in today's marketplace, and more importantly wiping thousands of historic TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts, which contain precious personal anecdotes from political, show business, and sports icons of the past.

Johnny Carson plays "Stump the Band" with the audience. Among the participants is 19 year old aspiring actress Linda Day who would later become actress Linda Day George. Guests are Mickey Rooney and impressionist Adam Keith. Ed McMahon is co-host.

The opening of the show, Doc Severinson, substituting for Ed McMahon, who is on vacation, introduces the guests for this evening show. Johnny returning from vacation does a nine minute monologue. 

While Johnny and Doc are conversing at the desk, Ed Sullivan appears, surprising Johnny.

Three weeks after the cancellation of The Ed Sullivan Show, on the air for 23 years, Ed discusses how he will miss the show.  He states that he will be doing eight specials for CBS. Sullivan talks about his innate abilities to spot talent and that ability was what made the Ed Sullivan Show successful. Johnny asks Sullivan about new trends in TV. Sullivan praises Carson for his exceptional prowess to be funny every night. 

Included are four commercials:
Aqueduct, All State Insurance, Sears, and  Tender Leaf Tea.
