"Heeeeere's Johnny!" I think that's the one phrase I'll never forget whenever Ed's name is mentioned. He managed to outlive his old Tonight Show host and live to a ripe old age of 86. Memories of Ed and Johnny Carson take me way back to my early teen years when Johnny made the switch from daytime game show host (Who Do You Trust) to the Tonight Show on NBC. I loved to stay up late at night (even though I'd be dead tired at school the next day) to watch the Tonight Show, at least see the funny opening monologue.
