Synopsis

As a rising star in the '50s, the future host of 'The Tonight Show' presided over this variety show, which featured a little singing and a lot of comedy. Although it lasted less than a year, Carson must have been doing something right, because six years later he began his three-decade reign as the king of late-night TV.
