In this powerful episode of JOAN & MELISSA: JOAN KNOWS BEST?, Joan undergoes a battery of tests after a doctor finds a spot on an x-ray. As she and Melissa anxiously await test results, Joan conquers her bucket list one wish at a time. As she makes her way through the list, Joan finally confronts her long-standing estrangement with the “King of Late Night,” the late Johnny Carson.

The feud between the two began when Joan was offered her own late night talk show after 18 years of being under Johnny’s wing. Joan says Johnny never spoke to her again despite numerous attempts on her part. The ‘breakup’ between the two, Joan says, would impact her career for many years.

In the episode, Joan shares with friend Tony Tripoli her plan to visit Johnny’s grave only to find out the former “Tonight Show” host was cremated. In an effort to carry out her plans, the two take a trip to Johnny Carson Park…will Joan finally forgive and forget? Or will the visit stir up old pain?

Also in this week’s episode, “The Office” star Ellie Kemper hops in bed with the comedy queen for an interview on Joan’s hit web series “In Bed with Joan.”
