The Johnny Carson Show

Johnny Carson's second wife has had kinescopes of The Johnny Carson Show (a weekly comedy and variety series that aired briefly in 1955) for over thirty-five years . The show lasted less than a year, and until recently, no one thought there was any surviving footage.

I mention this for two reasons: one, I saw all this in an article over at the New York Times that's quite interesting, and two, the episodes are coming out on DVD this week.
