Joan Rivers, who died Thursday, got her start on prime-time variety and late-night talk shows in the 1960s, and is especially remembered for her appearances on The Tonight Show.
Once she was introduced on-air in 1965, Rivers routinely visited the program and later would officially fill in as host for Johnny Carson – until she was offered a rival show on Fox, triggering a lifelong freeze-out by Carson. She would not again appear on The Tonight Show for 26 years.
