Today is National TV Talk Show Host Day, which is celebrated every year on what would be the birthday of the King of late night television, Johnny Carson.

The so-called holiday was made to honor the faces who have graced television screens regularly, from the days when there was only one or two host's, to today when it seems like there are hundreds.

The day was originally created to honor all TV Talk Show hosts. Johnny Carson's birth date was selected, in respect for the King of all the TV Talk Shows.
