How exactly would you go about releasing a show like The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson on DVD? With multiple piecemeal releases over the years, there's a proven interest in Carson's run on the show, but with over 2,000 episodes stretching over three decades, how the hell do you approach the sheer volume of material? Now word comes via TVShowsOnDVD.com that Amazon and Respond2 Entertainment have teamed up to try something new: manufacture-on-demand copies of selected episodes made available via Amazon's CreateSpace program.
Amazon currently has nearly 60 episode disks available right now (opens in new tab), each running around a half hour for $12.99. Presumably Amazon will be adding more episodes in future months. Odds are we'll never see a release of Carson's entire voluminous run on the show, but this is a great solution for fans wanting to add some of their favorite moments to their collection. You can check out the full press release and box art below.
