Twenty years after his retirement from The Tonight Show, Johnny Carson still reigns as the all-time King of Late Night Television.

Sign up for the AARP Leisure Newsletter.

Featuring long-unseen footage, a new PBS American Masters special profiles Carson’s public and private life — including his long relationship with Dick Cavett. Recalling those years, Cavett tells Movies for Grownups host Bill Newcott about their first meeting — when Carson was a young magician in Nebraska — and about their enduring friendship, even after they became late-night rivals.
