Ed McMahon and Johnny Carson relaxing at the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. At this point, Carson, McMahon, along with Bandleader Skitch Henderson were all starring on The Tonight Show. It is the world’s longest-running talk show and over the course of more than 60 years, The Tonight Show has undergone only minor title changes since it began broadcasting in 1954. It has had six official hosts, starting with Steve Allen (1954–57), followed by Jack Paar (1957–62), Johnny Carson (1962–92), Jay Leno (1992–2009, 2010–14), Conan O’Brien (2009–10), and Jimmy Fallon (2014–present).
