Johnny Carson: The Vault Series

The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series
DVD
Time Life
Release date: October 4, 2016

Johnny Carson, the pioneer of late night television, whose incarnation of The Tonight Show ran for 30 years on NBC, is now available in newly packaged deluxe DVD set from Time-Life entitled The Vault Series, showcasing some of the best and most requested episodes from that program.

With the current success of The Tonight Show in reruns on Antenna TV, Johnny Carson’s famous visage, wit, distinctive voice, intelligence, and propensity to have a smooth control throughout has been resurrected for audiences young and old. Chock full of entertainment variety including a virtual who’s who of celebrities and musical acts, ranging from Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Dean Martin, Paul McCartney, Muhammad Ali, Jack Benny, Richard Pryor, Sean Connery, Jerry Lewis, Buddy Rich, Don Rickles, Orson Welles, and scores of others, one would be hard pressed to find a celebrity who didn’t make his way on the program, which originally ran from 1962 to 1992. With hilarious sketches that usually parodied the pop culture of the times, and of course the banter between Carson and sidekick stalwart Ed McMahon, The Tonight Show was the perennial go-to program for most of America as the twilight hour surfaced, five nights a week.

When Sebastian actually fell for one of their targets, the sweet Annette Hargrove (Reese Witherspoon), tragedy struck and Sebastian was killed. Kathryn was exposed for the evil bitch she was. Now, the continuation will be a series, and NBC and Gellar have confirmed the casting.

Kylo Ren Star Wars Undercover Boss SNL

Undercover Boss on CBS gives audiences a chance to see business leaders witnessing the real side of their companies, by going undercover and working the grunt lifestyles. Adam Driver hosted SNL this weekend, and they gleefully used his role from the now biggest movie ever, Star Wars Episode VIII: The Force Awakens to spoof the popular series. Driver plays the evil Kylo Ren in the film, the leader of the notorious First Order; but in the sketch he’s Matt, a radar technician trying to feel out the employees on Starkiller Base. In the film, Ren is commonly short tempered and is known to be quick to overreact at the first signs of bad news. He appears in his ominous black cloak and voice distorting mask to set up the sketch.

The Midnight Special

The Midnight Special, the quintessential 1970s musical variety program that showcased live performances by current and classic acts each week on NBC, has been packaged by Time-Life into a deluxe 11-DVD set filled with the greatest highlights of the program and chocked with hours of bonus material. The set is now available and is a perfect item for the music lover in your family.

Not even Saturday Night Live had been showcasing the kind of sonically rousing cornucopia of bands, sounds, and genres like The Midnight Special was doing. Rock, Funk, Pop, Soul, R&B, even traces of hard rock/metal were common fare on the program. The program always had the vibe (as most of the 1970s did) as one big idyllic, relaxed laid back party, replete with audience members allowed to get loose and whoop it up and stomp their feet, as the band played live their latest hit or well-known album cut.

Based on The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum

NBC
Air Date: Thursday, December 3rd, 2015, 8:00pm

Thursday night, 11.5 million people tuned in to NBC’s 3rd live show, The Wiz Live!, making it the most sucessful one yet.

And I know why.

The story of a young lost girl who journeys through a magical land, just trying to find her way back home, is timeless. Set to the same funky music of the original 1975 Broadway musical, but also keeping one of the songs from the 1978 movie starring Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, this rendition was a delight from start to finish. It also trended during the entire broadcast, thanks to some serious live tweeting.
