I used to think Kimmel was funny.  Oh well, all things change I guess.

I think there is a market for a non-political late-night show host.  There's not one now that I would give 5 seconds to, but we had them for years.  The thing was, we didn't know their political feelings.  Even Jack Paar, who was a bit of a flake was unbiased and likable.  Johnny Carson was great.

Carson WAS the best!
He was equal opportunity when it came to political comments.
He had what I would call some liberal views but I have no idea which way he really leaned.

I have an entire library of the Carson show!

Quote
Carson opposed the Vietnam War, and capital punishment, favored racial equality, and was against criminalizing extramarital sex and pornography.

He avoided explicitly mentioning his views on The Tonight Show, saying he "hates to be pinned down" as that would "hurt me as an entertainer, which is what I am."

As he explained in 1970, "In my living room

I would argue for liberalization of abortion laws, divorce laws, and there are times when I would like to express a view on the air.
I would love to have taken on Billy Graham. But I'm on TV five nights a week; I have nothing to gain by it and everything to lose."

He also seldom invited political figures onto the Tonight Show because he "didn't want it to become a political forum" and did not want the show used, by himself or others, to influence the opinions of the viewers.

In his book, Carson's former lawyer Henry Bushkin stated, he "was by instinct and upbringing definitely Republican, but of an Eisenhower sort that we don't see much of anymore ... Overall, you'd have to say he was anti-big: anti-big government, anti-big money, anti-big bullies, anti-big blowhards."

Carson served as MC for Ronald Reagan's inaugural gala in 1981 at the request of Frank Sinatra.

I like the fact that I didn't know anything at all about Carson's political ideas.
