scored a prime time network show on CBS, but it flopped. Then he retreated to New York in 1957 to host a daytime quiz show for also ran ABC.
Johnny Carson didn't invent late night television or its talk shows. He didn't invent their desk and couch format, or the monologue, the sidekick, the obligatory house band. Even many of his most popular comic characters were lifted brazenly from other performers, such as Jackie Gleason and Jonathan Winters. history.
He grew up in small town Nebraska, the son of a father who worked at the local power company and an emotionally withholding mother whose approval he seems to have sought, fruitlessly, his entire life.
During his five years on "Who Do You Trust?" he was able to establish himself as an attractive, quick witted personality, while building bonds with his chosen sidekick, Ed McMahon, who, of course, would remain at his side for the rest of Nike Trousers For Boys
This led to showbiz as his chosen profession. And after college, he landed a job at an Omaha radio station, where, with the advent of TV soon after, he hosted a program on the infant medium. A 1950 film clip captures him at work, blinking and breathless behind his desk much in contrast to the cool, unflappable on air manner he would grow into.
The film hears from dozens of performers and colleagues, as well as from the second of Carson's four wives, Joanne.
"This is a Nike T-shirts 2017 guy who was as familiar as a bedtime story," says Arsenio Hall. Hall, whose syndicated show arrived in 1989 to become Carson's only real threat, is lavish in his praise of Carson as an interviewer: "He had the perfect barometer in his head for when to go and when to stay out. He could save you if the show needed it, or he could let you do your thing."
Soon he went to Los Angeles, where he hosted a sketch comedy show on a local station. He Nike Sweater Crew Neck
But as a boy, he discovered the way to win approval at least from others was by performing magic: "You can be the centre of attention without being yourself," he explains as an adult.
But ultimately, Carson's popularity wasn't based on his interview skills. Or his jokes.

Show explores Carson's impact on late
Hired to replace the departing Jack Paar on "The Tonight Show," Carson made his first appearance on Oct. 1, 1962. No video exists of his debut, just an audio tape that finds him sounding cool and confident even as he jokes about his jitters.
There were jokes that zeroed in on current events, including this mid 1970s gem that, four decades later, seems as topical as ever: "President Ford is considering an income tax cut for people in lower tax brackets. The bad news is, he still hasn't figured how they can get an income."
Carson reigned for nearly 30 years, hosting 4,531 episodes and receiving 23,000 guests. For most of his run, he had no competition, or none that mattered. His nightly viewership, averaging as much as 15 million, was more than the current audience of "Tonight" successor Jay Leno and CBS rival David Letterman combined.
The closest anyone has come to filling Carson's role in the culture was Oprah Winfrey for the quarter century she hosted her weekday talk show. Now, there is no one.
Narrated by Kevin Spacey, "King of Late Night" is written, directed and produced by Emmy and Peabody winning filmmaker Peter Jones, who for years wrote an annual letter to Carson seeking his co operation in the creation of a documentary about him. Carson always declined, but after his death, Jones successfully approached Carson's nephew, Jeff Sotzing, who controls his uncle's archives.
But who was he? "King of Late Night" does a fine job of penetrating the familiar veneer of Carson, a private man in spite of his exposure.
In addition, he was a superb stand up comic.
"King of Late Night" follows Carson from there all the way to his retirement from the show in 1992, and his death, at age 79, in 2005.
"I don't think anybody was watching Johnny Carson to rate how his material was," says Conan O'Brien, himself briefly a "Tonight Show" host. "You liked him. You liked that man so much, and you went with him."
