#155: OPEN END WITH DAVID SUSSKIND:"THE ART OF COMEDY"
1961-12-24, WNEW, 96 min.
David Susskind, Johnny Carson, Woody Allen, Dave Astor, Jack Carter, Mickey Rooney

Guests Johnny Carson, Woody Allen, Dave Astor, Jack Carter and Mickey Rooney discuss the world of comedy with David Susskind.  This very rare "lost TV broadcast" was Woody Allen's first notable television appearance and was telecast nine months before Johnny Carson would become host of "The Tonight Show."  

NOTE: Originally recorded off the air by Phil Gries. Woody Allen who had been looking to obtain this "lost" broadcast for years was given a personal copy by Gries in January 1997 and soon after donated a copy to The Paley Center for Media (at that time named The  Museum of Television and Radio).
Jack Carter also received a copy of this broadcast from Gries who discussed in a letter his near fisticuff moments with Woody Allen during commercial breaks.

#14391: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1963-12-31, NBC, 20 min.
Rudy Vallee, Johnny Carson, Woody Allen, Ed McMahon, Ben Grauer

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.

#V13: JACK PAAR PROGRAM, THE
1964-01-24, NBC, min.
Jack Paar, Woody Allen, Lowell Thomas

     September 21, 1962 - September 10, 1965

Jack Paar elected to pursue a three year NBC series in prime time soon after stepping down as host of THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JACK PAAR (1957-1962). These broadcasts took on the form of a variety / talk show format. Each telecast opened with a Paar monologue. Also shown from time to time were personal home movies shot by Jack on various trips by the Paar family to Africa, Russia, and Europe.Jack's daughter, Randy Paar would often assist her dad narrating these films.  

Appearing with Jack were many of his old regulars from the TONIGHT SHOW including Alexander King, Oscar Levant and Jonathan Winters. This 10pm Friday prime time slot attracted many notable guests, including Richard Nixon, Barry Goldwater and Ted Kennedy. Also, given exposure were many young and veteran entertainers, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland, Ethel Merman, Peggy Lee, and stand-up comedians, among them, Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, Godfrey Cambridge, Jackie Vernon, Mike Nichols & Elaine May, Burns & Schreiber, and Dick Gregory. 

Impact appearances occurred introducing footage of The Beatles, prior to the group appearing on The Ed Sullivan Show, and a young Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali), singing and spewing poetry with Jack and Liberace. 

After three years (one and a half years less than his tenure on THE TONIGHT SHOW), Jack Paar called it quits and would prematurely retire from the business with the exception of  producing and starring in a handful of Specials for NBC and accepting one brief return to regular television, for nine months, hosting an ABC late night talk show, JACK PAAR TONITE in 1973).

Jim Henson showcased some of his early Muppets, the most regular member of the Our Place cast being Rowlf the talking dog. He actually co-hosted the show with B&S. Talk about a big break for Rowlf! Our Place kicked open the door for the mutt who'd later find greater fame in a 1970s series featuring him and his other Muppet pals. Jack Burns, would be head writer for the first season of The Muppet Show (Syndicated, 1976-1981).

The executive producer was Bob Precht who produced The Ed Sullivan Show and was also Sullivan's son-in-law. Bill Angelos and Buz Kohan wrote and produced the show and John Moffitt was the director.

NOTE: With the exception of the third broadcast (July 23, 1967 with guest Dick Shawn), uploaded in six parts (51:30) in 2008 on you tube, no other example of the other nine shows is known to exist in any broadcast form (video, audio, transcript) in the archives of UCLA Film and Radio, Paley Center for Media, Library of Congress, Museum of Broadcasting.

Johnny Carson, Woody Allen, Otto Preminger, Ed McMahon, Muhammad Ali, Doc Severinsen, Joe Frazier, Jerry Quarry, Elijah Muhammad, Judith Crist, Malcolm X

Broadcast History: Oct. 1, 1962 - May 22, 1992

Woody Allen is the substitute host for this broadcast.
He is introduced by announcer Ed McMahon. We hear Woody Allen's complete monologue which includes his mention of his first feature Take the Money and Run to open soon in Manhattan.

Woody Allen's  first guest is Muhammad Ali who discusses the upcoming Heavyweight Championship fight between Joe Frazier and Jerry Quarry. Woody asks if Muhammad would like to fight them.  Ali admits to Allen that he doesn't miss boxing and that he is currently 20 pounds overweight. He states that he doesn't have the urge to return to the ring. 
Presently he is facing a possible five year prison term if convicted for refusing to be conscripted and tells his reasons for such decision. Muhammad relates to Woody about the many college tours (116) he currently does and states his love of doing them.
Other topics include Ali's one year expulsion from his Islamic faith by the honorable Elijah Muhammad, and the reasons why expulsion has happened, as it has also occurred to others including Malcolm X.  Woody and Muhammad show a great camaraderie for one another. 

Otto Preminger kids around with Woody Allen and invites him to appear in his next film. Preminger loves Woody's play which just opened (Play it Again Sam). Preminger mentions that as an actor he was typecast as a Nazi and made five films playing a Nazi. 

Film critic Judith Crist discusses the new rating system as all join in with there own opinions. 

NOTE: A lost broadcast not know to exist in any broadcasts form or transcript. When originally broadcast the  signal reflected a slight audible interference which is however quite faint but minimally present.   


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 dropouts 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.

                             ………………RESEARCH REPORT……………………….
                   by Phil Gries - (Archival Television Audio, Inc.)
                                       (www.atvaudio.com) – March 11, 2012

THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, aired on NBC Television from October 1, 1962, to May 22, 1992. Approximately, 4,531 episodes were broadcast according to reference sources.
This research report attempts to detail, specifically, those surviving complete and excerpt episodes which currently exist, as archived by THE CARSON ENTERTAINMENT GROUP, representing the first ten years of surviving programming as notated on its on-line inventory site… primarily representing broadcasts which aired from New York City, from Oct. 1, 1962, until May 1, 1972, at which time the show was aired from Burbank, California for the duration of its 30 year run.

During this first ten-year broadcast time period only 276 individual shows survive (represented by 243 excerpts and only 33 complete shows, of which only 12 of these COMPLETE broadcasts reflect and represent the 1960’s).  The majority of all additional TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON broadcasts, televised during this first ten-year period, have been sadly erased, destroyed, lost, misplaced, during an era when archiving television was not a visionary.

                                                                    
The average excerpt time length representing each of the surviving 243 episodes equals approximately 13 minutes of extant programming. Excerpts range mostly from 5 minutes to 20 minutes in length. It is unfortunate that so much original programming representing the first TEN YEARS of broadcasting related to THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON was not saved by NBC network personnel who failed to realize the value and historic significance of these telecasts. 

Representing this ten year time period are 7,130 minutes of broadcast time which approximates a total of only 119 surviving hours. One could view ALL surviving material in less than five days!

The breakdown representing complete shows are as follows:

There exists NO complete one hour & 45-minute broadcasts (11:15pm-1:00am)-October 1, 1962 – December 30, 1966. 
 
Only three complete broadcasts, December 31, 1963, Oct. 3, 1965, with substitute host Joey Bishop, & December 31, 1965, sans the first 15-minute local lead in, survive, spanning the time period October 1, 1962, thru June 18, 1968.

 NO 11:15pm to 11:30pm segments survive representing Johnny Carson’s initial lead in monologue telecast to all local affiliates, nor those first 15-minute segments representing Ed McMahon and Skitch Henderson, who relieved Johnny Carson of that assignment, beginning February 19, 1965. 
 
 At 11:15 pm local stations had the option to broadcast the TS or present local programming (usually expanded news).  When Carson opted not to come on until the full network went online at the 11:30pm time McMahon and Henderson did what in essence was a 15-minute warm-up, lead-in to Johnny Carson’s entrance at 11:30pm.

A total of 5 complete episodes survives from 1968…
4 complete episodes from 1969…1 complete episode from 1970…4 complete episodes from 1971 and 15 complete episodes from 1972 representing the time period, February 18 to September 29, finalizing the first ten years of broadcasts.

When Johnny Carson moved his Tonight Show to Burbank (May 1, 1972) archiving THE TONIGHT SHOW became more of a focus and dictum by Johnny and production staff, as is evidenced in 1972 when scores of complete shows were saved. By 1973 and most decidedly from 1974 through Carson’s final show, May 22, 1992…almost all TONIGHT SHOW STARRING                                                                  JOHNNY CARSON broadcasts were saved and archived and not indiscriminately erased to economize, taping over previously recorded programs which was a common practice.

The earliest COLOR episode archived in the CARSON ENTERTAINMENT GROUP collection is from August 18, 1964. There are four color episodes archived from 1965…two from 1966…two from 1967 (one of the two excerpts, 12/8/67, in color, has NO AUDIO)…five from 1968…eleven from 1969, at which time MOST programming SAVED were saved as color 2” Quads or 16mm color kinescopes . The LAST saved episode in Black & White is dated in the CEG online index as September 13, 1971 (13-minute excerpt with Buddy Hackett). 

With few exceptions, all air dates as notated by the CARSON ENTERTAINMENT GROUP website are egregiously inaccurate, as notated here based on 2010 information. Some  blatant  errors are obvious. Judy Garland is listed as a guest in an entry dated October 12, 1969. Garland passed away June 22, 1969. There are hundreds of other inaccurate air dates listed (a correct air date is the exception) which need to be researched and corrected for it undermines the scholarly, arduous and prestigious accomplishment of such a praiseworthy peerless research source.  Reference resources available to accurately and definitively do such corrections exist as evidenced in my own reference library which include Tonight Show NBC INDEX CARD FILES, ROSS REPORTS TELEVISION INDEX, and NY METROPOLITAN TV GUIDES. 

Also, inaccurately listed, are air dates which contain not one but a multitude of excerpts each representing a multitude of different programs, combined together…giving the impression that all segments pertain to one show when in essence we are scrutinizing a compilation of programs, representing a dozen shows. 
Those brief excerpt segments which do survive from the first five years of Tonight Shows (1962-1967), seem, to this archivist/researcher, to be personal request copies by performers who made arrangement to have just their own segment kinescoped, or video taped. These truncated brief excerpts, which include, from time to time Carson at his desk, live commercial spots, station ID, segues, etc., read like a who’s who of “unknown/forgotten” entertainers. Most of these TS guests are lesser named celebrities or non-show business individuals.
 
The premiere show, October 1, 1962, survives as an AUDIO excerpt, as confirmed by Johnny Carson on a Tonight Show broadcast, September 14, 1987 which exists in this collection.
Other resources which maintain archive broadcasts representing the TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON include THE PALEY CENTER for MEDIA (2,489 items…99% of their                                                                         archive represents post September 1972 programs). Pre-1972 saved broadcasts represent only five entries. THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS have only a few scant regular episodes with picture, but does have 416 ARMED FORCES RADIO (thirty minute excerpt recorded episodes) AUDIO ONLY discs which are one sided analog shellacs, 33 1/3 rpm; 12 inches). They represent the time period, January 1967 thru November 1968. 
The MUSEUM OF BROADCAST COMMUNICATIONS have listed on their website only five archived programs, all post 1981 with one 1969 exception (12/17/69-marriage of Tiny Tim). 

 UCLA FILM & TELEVISION ARCHIVE have no listings related to TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON broadcasts.
The following list is a guide documenting those 276 surviving shows, representing the first 10 years of the THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, archived by the CARSON ENTERTAINMENT GROUP which has been prodigiously created and orchestrated by Jeff Sotzing and company, and implemented in its current on-line structure to the public in 2010.
 
I have included all notated air dates which represents each surviving 1962-1972 (thru September) TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON broadcasts, as preserved and listed on-line by the CARSON ENTERTAINMENT GROUP. The air dates, as collated by CEG, while mostly inaccurate, are included as a guide. The running time of each surviving excerpt and or complete show, indicated by an *, is included. On occasion I correct and indicate actual air dates (s/b) that I know off the top of my head, and I offer occasional additional pertinent information deemed interesting and relevant. Possibly, at another time a list representing the Complete Archive by the CARSON ENTERTAINMENT GROUP (all 30 years) can be tabulated, further scrutinized, and amended, for accuracy (especially accurate original broadcast date information), creating a more definitive listing with all current data researched, amending inaccuracies and adding omissions. 
There are approximately 3,300 hours of TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON broadcasts currently archived and existing in the collection of the CARSON ENTERTAINMENT GROUP. Incredibly, only 119 archived hours (first 10 years) survive. 
They are listed as follows:
