Johnny Carson's Final "Tonight Show," 20 Years Later
Has it really been 20 years? Johnny Carson took to the "Tonight Show" stage one last time on May 22, 1992, for a subdued look back at his nearly 30 years hosting the late night franchise. (The big farewell had been the night before, a legendary episode featuring Robin Williams and Bette Midler). Here's the last hurrah. (The show starts 45 seconds into the clip above.)
Below, Johnny closes the show and says farewell.
