#6966: TONIGHT! STARRING STEVE ALLEN
1955-08-26, WRCA, 87 min.
Steve Allen, Andy Williams, Debbie Reynolds, Milton Berle, Steve Lawrence, Skitch Henderson, Gene Rayburn, Erroll Garner, Micki Marlo, Pete Ruggilo, Hy Averback

September 27, 1954 - January 25, 1957. This broadcast was the last from Hollywood which was the home of Tonight! Starring Steve Allen from June 27 to August 26, 1955. It was also the last time Hy Averback appeared as announcer.

The basic format of The Tonight Show was established during Allen's tenure: an opening monologue, a segment involving the studio audience (through interviews or games such as "Stump the Band"), and a simple set (a desk and chair for the host, a couch for the guests) were all trademarks of the Allen era. Allen inaugurated the out-of-town broadcast (the first one was done from Miami), the one guest show (Carl Sandburg was the first solo guest), and the one topic show (entire programs were devoted to such subjects as narcotics, civil rights, and black music). Allen also established the practice of paying his guests only "scale," the minimum fee required by union-network contract (this practice led to a highly publicized  feud between Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan and later between Jack Paar and Ed Sullivan, as Sullivan paid top dollar for his guests). Though Allen's Tonight! show closely resembled the shows of his successors, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson, it was a more musical show; Allen himself was an accomplished musician and composer (he wrote his theme, "This Could Be The Start of Something"), and he employed a nucleus of musical regulars on his show. In addition to announcer – sidekick Gene Rayburn, the show featured singers Steve Lawrence (who was only seventeen when he began singing on Allen's local show), Eydie Gormé (who subsequently married Steve Lawrence), Andy Williams (who later hosted several series of his own), and Pat Marshall (who was succeeded by Pat Kirby).  Skitch Henderson led the Orchestra.

At the end of the broadcast, the announcer states to viewers that the music from this production is available in stores on Decca Records.

 Premiere broadcast.

 June 24,1956-December 27,1961.
The multi-talented Steve Allen- musician, composer, singer, comedian,author- was the star of this live weekly variety series that bore a strong resemblance to his informal, late-night Tonight! Show. Although the program had elements of music and serious aspects, comedy was far and away its major component. Steve had with him one of the most versatile and talented collections of improvisational comics ever assembled. Among the features that were used at one time or another on a semi-regular basis were: "Letters to the Editor," "The Allen Report to the Nation," "Mad-Libs," "Crazy Shots," "Where Are They Now," "The Question Man," "The Allen Bureau of Standards," and "The Allen All Stars." The most frequently used feature, and by far the most memorable, was the "Man on the Street Interview." It was here that the comics on the show developed their  best-remembered characters: Louis Nye as suave, smug Gordon Hathaway, Tom Poston as the man who can't remember his own name, Skitch Henderson as Sidney Ferguson, Don Knotts as the extremely nervous and fidgety Mr Morrison, Pat Harrington as Italian golf pro Guido Panzini, and Bill Dana as shy Jose Jimenez.

#859A: ZACHERLEY AT 12:00
1959-11-20, WOR, 30 min.
John Zacherley

October 9, 1959 - December 26, 1959 &
April 8, 1960 - July 1, 1960

John Zacherley, who became famous introducing horror films,and satirizing them on SHOCK THEATER / ZACHERLEY AT LARGE, on WABC TV, found a new home at WOR TV in October of 1959 and hosted "Zacherley at 12:00," a series initially lasting a little more  than two months, totaling 12 broadcasts from October 9 - December 25, 1959, and then returning for another 13 broadcasts in the Spring of 1960.

These WOR TV channel 9 ninety minute programs were presented on Friday Nights at Midnight, re-run (video tape) Saturday at noon, and re-run again, Saturday Night at Midnight, thru November 28, 1959.  

At his new WOR Ch. 9 berth, Zacherley remained a suave ghoulish monster from Cloud Transylvania, adding offbeat crazy humor to old "B" films which were edited to 60 minutes running time. The remaining 30 minutes of broadcast time was pure Zacherley. On this classic show Zacherley and the symphonic orchestra and Gypsy Band perform the opera "All Quiet On The Balkan Front." It celebrates the Victory of Transylvania over Bohemia in 1332. In tongue and cheek fashion, Zacherley sings and explains the story as it progresses in six minute segments, between commercials and the showing of the 1944 feature film, "Cry of the Warewolf," presented that evening. Songs include: "Transylvania We Do Or Die," "A Passivist I Will Always Be," "Oh Where Oh Where Has My Hairy Friend Gone?," "I Am A Vampire Now," and "You Are The One Dear For Me Dear." 

No video tapes and only a handful of excerpt kinescope clips from this WOR TV series of 25 programs survive (total of 12 & 1/2 hours of Zacherley 30 minute sketches broadcast), making this audio presentation a very rare retrospective, as well as the five other air checks, from this series, preserved in the Archival Television Audio collection.

John Zacherley

Zacherley is seen live Friday at midnight. The taped show is then repeated at noon, on Saturday and on Saturday evening at midnight. This evening's episode is titled "Mummy From Egypt." Zacherley has just returned with a 6,000-year-old mummy. He conducts a TV auction and calls are taken by Zacherley from Yonkers High School, the Chairman of the National Committee, The Postmaster General, Mayor of N.Y.C. Robert Wagner, and the Board of Health. In hilarious fashion Zacherley displays articles brought back from his epic Egyptian pilgrimage. He sings "I'll Never See Cairo Again," introduces his wife through sound effects and details his plan to activate the mummy and let him loose in Times Square. A last song is sung by Zacherley, "Floating Down The Nile" ending with Zacherley's memorable howl "Let Me Out Of Here."

#6978: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JACK PAAR, THE
1960-02-11, NBC, 68 min.
Jack Paar, Hugh Downs, Shelley Berman, Jose Melis, Orson Bean

Jack Paar unexpectedly walks off the show during his opening monologue protesting NBC's censoring of a "Water Closet" joke he had told on last nights broadcast. After Paar walks off, Hugh Downs takes over and continues the show with guests who comment about what had just happened.

July 29, 1957- March 30,1962. 
 For four years and eight months Jack Paar reigned supreme as host of the Tonight Show with a crew of regulars, but only two stayed with him for the entire run; announcer Hugh Downs and band leader Jose Melis, a former army buddy. Familiar faces who appeared many times with Jack included Dody Goodman, Betty Johnson, Elsa Maxwell, Alexander King, Genevieve, Jack Douglas; and wife Reiko, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Hans Conried, Peggy Cass, Cliff (Charley Weaver) Arquette, and Johnathan Winters. Hugh Downs substituted for Jack Paar 79 times, more than any other substitute host. There were 20 different substitute hosts for Paar over the period of the series run. Joey Bishop substituted for Paar 31 times. Arlene Francis, 30 times, Jonathan Winters, 26 times, Orson Bean, 21 times and Johnny Carson 15 times. All together there were 243 broadcasts which had substitute hosts filling in for Paar during Jack Paar's TONIGHT SHOW tenure. The title of the late night broadcast changed to THE JACK PAAR SHOW which took effect on February 3, 1958. The first video-taped broadcast aired on January 5, 1959. "Best of Paar " Re-runs began on July 10,1959. The first color broadcast aired on September 19, 1960.                                                                                                                                                            
#862: JOE FRANKLIN SHOW, THE

Joe Franklin, Jerome Courtland

Guest Jerome Courtland plugs his new WABC syndicated series "The Vikings." Interesting note: This live TV show would leave the air for 15 minutes because of technical problems and would resume programming where it left off, signing off the air 15 minutes later at 11:15am instead of its normal sign off time of 11:00am. It would pre-empt the regularly scheduled program "Romance of Life." The astonishing flexibility of the number three network, ABC, in 1960 is observed. Joe Franklin, an important daytime personality, is allowed to accommodate his sponsor Canada Dry and extends the program for their live television testimonials. Franklin also plugs his other sponsors My-T-Fine desert and does a complete commercial for Vermont Maid Syrup.
