Johnny Carson was The Tonight Show.  In fact, let's face it: It wasn't The Tonight Show...it was The Johnny Carson Show.

Each night millions of American's would invite Johnny into their bedroom and watch as the greatest entertainers in the world would make their way to that famous couch.

Here, from November 1976, the legendary Frank Sinatra is visiting with Johnny when who should show up but...Don Rickles.

Let the fun begin!
