More Info:

The Tonight Show is an American late-night talk show that has aired on NBC since 1954. Recorded in Los Angeles, it is the longest currently running regularly scheduled entertainment program in the United States and the third longest-running show on NBC after Meet the Press and Today. The question as to whether it is the longest-running entertainment program in the world is a matter of debate, the Irish series The Late Late Show, which debuted in 1962, has run continuously in the same format and is a claimant to the title, whereas Tonight underwent significant changes in format and title during its history.

The Tonight Show was hosted by Steve Allen (1954–57), Jack Paar (1957–62), Johnny Carson (1962–92), Jay Leno (1992–2009, 2010–present), and Conan O'Brien (2009–10). Several guest hosts also appeared, particularly during the Paar and Carson eras.

John William "Johnny" Carson (October 23, 1925 – January 23, 2005) was an American television host and comedian, known for thirty years as host of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962–1992). Carson received six Emmy Awards, the Governor's Award, and a 1985 Peabody Award. He was inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame in 1987. Johnny Carson was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1992 and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 1993.

Although his show was already successful by the end of the 1960s, during the 1970s Carson became an American icon and remained so until his retirement in 1992. He adopted a casual, conversational approach with extensive interaction with guests, an approach pioneered by Arthur Godfrey and previous Tonight Show hosts Steve Allen and Jack Paar. Late-night hosts David Letterman, Jay Leno, Conan O'Brien, Craig Ferguson, and future Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon have all cited Carson's influence on their late-night talk shows, which resemble his in format and tone.
