This material consists mostly monologs and guest interviews. I was hoping for more skits from the mighty Carson art players.

It was a excellent collection of former shows. It was the whole show and not just a bit or piece of it . Hope to find more collections like that one !

I've only seen one other Tonight Show compilation, but, based on that, this set is definitely not a "best of" Carson. In fact, many of the segments were downright unfunny, if not blatantly offensive, particularly the David Brenner portions. There were only 2 or 3 of the Carson Art players sketches in 7 of the disks (1/2 the set) and just 1 or 2 of the "mystic seer" bits(forget his name). Can't recommend this set at this price.

While it's a 30 minute episode of each show, it is still fun to watch--and you get opening monologues with the first shows that I've watched. Unless you're purchasing the vault series, this is the best yet(if you want more than just clips of shows). Heeere's Johnny!

Bought this instead of the overpriced PBS 'gift'.
Fascinating chronicle of one of America's Finest Personalities.
RIP Johnny. And thanks for giving us such cool memories. There will NEVER be anyone like you.

Reasonably nice collection of Tonight Show episodes. It's Carson -- nobody's else has ever done late night half as well. I wish there were a few hundred more episodes. :)
