I got caught up that show in the 1980s. “Campy” would describe it.

If only they would find the missing Johnny Carson episodes.

They were lost when the studios taped over old shows with new ones to save money.

They’re obviously looking in the wrong places for those tapes.

They should start in Hollywood.

Erasing shows to “save money” was something that BBC was apparently infamous for, speaking of that.

Yes, and America had a whole network’s archives dumped in the Hudson once too. Anyone remember the DuMont network??

Those were recovered. In a closet in Austrailia or something.
