Yes, but only as a special treat when Mom and Dad were feeling generous! They ALWAYS watched Johnny Carson. They were born and raised in a teeny tiny town just 7 miles from Norfolk, Nebraska, so they had that local connection with him. LOL
Whenever I could. Tried to stay awake for Tiny Tim and Miss Vicky's wedding but couldn't. In our area, the tradition was to watch weather"girl" Marcia Yockey ( a real character!) and Johnny before going to bed (or sleep if you were lucky enough to have a TV in your bedroom).
