Back in the days of black and white TV there wasn’t much to choose from during daytime TV, but at night, when The Tonight show would come on, I could always count on Johnny Carson to have me laughing. My Mom always liked Dean Martin, so when I saw this video, I just had to post it here today.
Drinking and smoking on live TV? Surely not! That’s just bad, right? I mean it sets a bad example for people, right?
That’s the way today’s “politically correct” crowd would sneer at such behavior, yet today’s entertainers do all sorts of things which are “politically correct” yet to me, seem much worse.
Brushing all that aside, I have to say, today’s entertainers are just not of the same caliber as these two. For me, it just doesn’t get much better than Johnny Carson and Dean Martin on the Tonight Show!
