OTD May 13 - Johnny Carson
7 / 38
NBC Television

1994: Johnny Carson appears on "Late Show with David Letterman" in what would prove to be his last television appearance. After emerging from behind the curtain to a standing ovation, Carson requested to sit behind Letterman's desk, did so for a few moments as the audience continued to cheer and applaud, and then left the stage without saying a word to the audience.
