Johnny Carson Tonight Show: Individual Shows Now on Amazon DVD On Demand

Here’s an intriguing new option for real hardcore fans of the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson … before the advent of VHS & DVD recorders – if you missed these episodes, good luck seeing it again (or even in high res) but now Amazon is offering individual episodes pressed onto DVD’s “on demand.”

You can click on the graphic above or this link to check out the search page.

There seem to be 108 episodes listed available but in no particular order – obviously just a starting point and I guess the episodes they figure the long time fan is looking for?

I’m not a huge expert as most of his episodes were before I was allowed to stay up late 🙂 but clearly eps like this from : 05/04/77. Special Guests: Chevy Chase & Richard Pryor or one from 1976 with Frank Sinatra, Don Rickles, & Olivia Newton-John are fun time capsules for all TV fans.

Or if you just want to stream and watch it ON DEMAND via Amazon ON DEMAND – you can also watch most of them for $1.99 HERE.

For huge fans – there are also plenty of box sets to choose from.

    SNL did the perfect skit during Johnny’s last days on The Tonight Show. In the skit, Carson (played by Dana Carvey) showed “old footage” of him, Dom Deluise (played by Chris Farley), and Burt Reynolds (played by Phil Hartman). When the “clip” started, Reynolds had his pants down and all 3 were laughing their heads off. Deluise then planted a cream pie in Reynolds’ midsection, the 3 laughed even more hysterically, and then Deluise wet himself. That was one of the funniest things I have ever seen on television!

    Carnac the Magnificent was one of my favorites… I would stay up late when it was on… that was a long time ago…
