DVD Review: The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series

The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson: The Vault Series
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.

DVD Review: The Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes

Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes
6-DVD set
Starring Carol Burnett, Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, Tim Conway
TML Entertainment
Release date: September 15, 2015

The Carol Burnett Show was a sprawling, hilarious variety program which was a staple of television during the late 1960s to the 1970s and hosted a virtual A to Z of guest stars, not to mention a highly talented and memorable repertory cast of regulars. All these years later, Carol Burnett Show: The Lost Episodes is being released as a 6-DVD set, which showcases the Queen of Television comedy.

For decades in syndication, scores of audiences watched, watched, and watched again the half-hour program which siphoned down the original hour-long episodes which aired from mainly the show’s second half of its run on CBS. Entitled Carol Burnett and Friends, it was to many that Carol Burnett and her zany cast of regulars (Harvey Korman, Vicki Lawrence, and Tim Conway among them) performed in scores of sketches and variety numbers, many of which satirized popular culture and showcased a wide array of characterizations, ranging from the sublime to the absolute ridiculous.
