    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    I shouldn't point this out on the internet because it might draw attention and then get the show censored, but Antenna TV (over the air channel) shows reruns of the Tonight Show with ol' Johnny Carson weeknights at 9 p.m. local time.

    The shows tell you at the beginning when they originally aired and who the interview guests are. The episodes I've seen are from the 70s and 80s.
    His monologue is different from late nite hosts today.
    I know these reruns are edited to run in one hour, but the opening monologue isn't too long.
    And while Johnny Carson made fun of both Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, he didn't make every single joke he told about politics.
    Warning to the easily triggered, some of his jokes would not be approved by the Thought Police of today.
    And some of his jokes poked fun at foreign politicians and entertainers, with most Americans probably wouldn't even get today.
    If it ain't about who's sleeping with who in Hollywood this week, or who's carrying a dog around in their pocketbook, most Americans don't know who you're talking about.

    I remember when he had Arnold Palmer's wife on the show and he asked her what she did to give him luck on the tours. She said she "kissed his balls!"

    Jane Fonda asked Johnny one night if it was true what he said to a Zsa Zsa Gabor.

    Man, as much as I liked Carson, I can't watch Hanoi Jane. I cannot abide traitors.

    I agree whole heartedly but she is the setup for the entire clip. Just pay attention to Carson, You will enjoy it.
