Since comedian Byron Allen performed on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson at age 18, many of his high-stakes business ventures have paid off. His talk show Kickin’ It With Byron Allen started in 1992 and went on to become one of the country’s longest-running TV series. In 1993, Allen founded Entertainment Studios, which became a launching pad for eight 24-hour TV channels, including Cars.TV, Pets.TV, and others. Last year, he bought The Weather Channel for $300 million.
