    Johnny Carson begins an episode of "The Tonight Show" as "Carnac the Magnificent!"

Twenty-one years after the King of Late Night retired from NBC's "The Tonight Show," Johnny Carson is back on television, thanks to Turner Classic Movies' new weekly Monday series, "Carson on TCM" showing at 8 p.m.
TCM airs selected interviews this month featuring some of the biggest stars who appeared during Carson's 30 years behind the desk at "The Tonight Show." Most of these interviews have not been seen in their entirety since they originally aired.
Unabashed Carson fan Conan O'Brien, the host of TBS's late-night "Conan" series whose short-lived stint as the host of "The Tonight Show" ended in 2010, emcees the 25 interviews that will be shown.
They include a debonair Fred Astaire in a 1979 chat, one of Henry Fonda's last TV interviews from 1980, a wild 1981 encounter with Robin Williams, and a flirtatious Elizabeth Taylor, who made her only appearance on the show in 1992.
The series airs at 8 p.m. Mondays in TCM.
