From Our Editors

Thirty-seven years before taking over The Tonight Show from Jack Paar, Johnny Carson was born in a humble one-story home in Corning, Iowa, the county seat of the least populated county in Iowa, on October 23, 1925. After studying radio and speech at the University of Nebraska, he honed his comedic chops writing for Red Skelton before forever reshaping late-night television. The recipient of numerous awards, including a Peabody and Presidential Medal of Freedom, and named the Greatest TV Icon by Entertainment Weekly and TV Land, Johnny remained on The Tonight Show until 1992, when his final episode drew in nearly 50 million viewers. Highlights from his Tonight Show tenure play on a TV inside his family's restored home, where visitors can explore the various rooms of Johnny's childhood.
