The Steve Allen Show with guest Mort Sahl (1960)

The Jack Benny Program with guest Ginger Rogers (1957) ) - Footage Offline - 05/23/09

What's My Line with mystery guest Danny Kaye (1957)

To keep this site from being overwhelmed by the sudden glut of What's My Line mystery guest spots flooding YouTube, I will only be embedding those featuring famous comedians or full episodes when they appear.

Wheel of Fortune (1976)

The sound ain't great but it's interesting to see an episode of Wheel of Fortune from 1976 hosted by a young Chuck Woolery (who looks like a Jack Burns character). I don't blame you if can't sit through the whole thing. I didn't.

The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson with guest Bob Uecker (1984)

What's My Line with panelist Groucho Marx (1959)

Groucho spars a bit with Bennett Cerf's failed attempts at humor and laborious rambling (as did Henry Morgan every now and then). By the way this is the 1000th post on Classic Television Showbiz and probably the 500th with questionable grammar.

Lou Teicher - 1924-2008

To Tell the Truth - 1969-1976 Theme Music

Love this song.

The Doris Day Show featuring Rose Marie and McLean Stevenson (1968)

I can't believe they let Doris on national television with such an awful tan. This is a two-parter, but you'll have to wait a little bit to see the next installment of this episode as simultaneous Guba embeds really fack with the formatting of this blog for some reason.
