Thanksgiving Special - The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson

Johnny Carson, who retired in 1992, was known as the "King of Late Night," a title he still retains. Based on what has aired after late local news in the last 30+ years, his title will never be challenged. 

In addition to host Johnny Carson, the cast included sidekick Ed McMahon and bandleader Doc Severinsen. Johnny and Ed had amazing chemistry and produced some of the funniest moments in the history of television.

But the night before Thanksgiving 1979, Ed (who used to deliver Publisher's Clearinghouse prize checks) was off for the holiday and it was Johnny and Doc. Keeping in mind all of this was extemporaneous, hold on before you split your side laughing.
