6 of 10. I loved his show but never paid much attention to the details. Maybe METV could possibly start airing his syndicated shows like they air The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday,(hint hint)

Despite my score, I still think johnny Carson was the best talk show host. Along with his great comic timing, he had a way of making any guest, and also the audience, feel special and comfortable.

Yup, that was the best show.
9/10 I had forgotten Joey Bishop had hosted that much
