Twenty-one years after the King of Late Night retired from NBC's The Tonight Show after a 30-year run, Johnny Carson is back on the small screen – this time on tablets and smartphones via iTunes starting Tuesday.
Carson, who was 79 when he died of emphysema in 2005, filmed 4,351 episodes of the late-night staple.
Now, users will have the chance to discover archived appearances of some of showbiz's most iconic stars, including a young Drew Barrymore, a soon-to-be president Bill Clinton, Bette Midler – who, as Carson's final guest, memorably delivered his favorite song, "One For My Baby (And One More for the Road)" on the second-to last episode – and Ellen DeGeneres, in one of her first TV appearances ever.
