    I find it ironic for years how Howie use to make fun of Johnny, and never considered him to be a talent. Yet, Howie has followed and done the same things Johnny did.

    Examples:

    -Both got their trophy wife
    -They are infamous for how many vacations they took
    -Bought the rights to their old tapes to put in syndication
    -Blacklists anyone who use to be on the show and tries to go out and make a name for themselves
    -Has annoying, talent less, ass kissing sidekick

    The first thought that came to my mind was the teeth. Howard's kept going long since his teeth started to deteriorate into the old man hard s's, he'd always bust Johnny's balls that he had to give the Tonight Show up to then-good friend Jay because he sounded and looked disgusting and decrepit. Howard should've taken his advice and hung it up years ago.

    Dude. DUDE!

    You forgot the most important point!

    --Worked 3 days a week and mailed it in during their final years.

    (I would say that is different from your vacations point.)

    Leno, 62, and Letterman, 65, still doing 5 shows a week.

    And both Howard and Johnny depend on comedy writers to make them appear remotely funny or witty, and then demand praise and respect for being comedy geniuses.

    Every comedy show has writers. Johnny had the best ever delivery. Howard wish he could smell Johnnys jock. Johnny was born in Nebraska who still drove himself to work everyday. Howard was born in the tribe, his dad already worked in the business, and we all know how Howard and Beth get around town. Johnny had class, Howard is classless.

    I could go on and on, but is there ever going to be a 2 hour commercial free program on PBS called American Masters: Howard Stern? ...umm no.

    And Johnny beat his wives the old fashioned way, and didn't have to go to BSDM clubs to do it.

    Huh, just found out that his lawyer alleged that Johnny's wife slept with Frank Gifford! And Johnny hired detectives and cried when he confirmed it.

    Right on the money -- I even witnessed JC parking his Corvette in the NBC lot.
    And, regarding Johnny's lightened schedule the last years, he substituted with a real show with a real guest host, so his audience didn't have to look elsewhere for laughs.
    Johnny made stars; he didn't get them in when they were on the skids. Do you think Seinfeld, etc., would abandon The Tonight Show once they made the big time?
    Johnny's hilarious comebacks could not have been written ahead of time; he was the master of these, like his killer double-takes.
    He made unfunny guests funny; that's a skill not too many hosts have.
    He was one of the best hosts the Oscars ever had.
    We never knew what any of his wives looked like.
    Something tells me Johnny wouldn't stoop to tweeting.
    And he left large amounts of money to charity quietly.

    He may have had his bad points (neglecting his sons, etc.), but Johnny Carson is one of our few home-grown American entertainment icons--still regarded as the gold standard in late-night talk.
