JOHNNY TRIVIA: What person from Orange County made more appearances on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" than anyone else? Answer: Lido Isle's Joey Bishop, above, who made a combined 206 guest and substitute host shows. Bishop, 74, who tried to dethrone Carson but failed with his ABC show after two years, says Carson was always kind to him. And now television without Carson? Says Bishop: "I can't understand it--Johnny Carson after 30 years is going off and 'Gilligan's Island' is still on."
