#13593: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JACK PAAR, THE
1962-02-01, NBC, 17 min.
Jack Paar, Buddy Hackett, William F. Buckley Jr., Gore Vidal

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 Melies, 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 performers 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. Altogether there were 243 broadcasts that 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 videotaped 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.  

The main guest is Gore Vidal, writer and well-known liberal who replies to remarks made by William F. Buckley Jr last night on this show...creating an on going feud between the two running on The Tonight Show. Liberalism vs conservatism. 

In a 10 minute segment Gore Vidal talks about William F. Buckley's many contradictions, his ideological wars, and smears, referencing Catholicism and the Pope. Both Jack Paar and Hugh Downs add to the analysis and criticism. "Who is he?" Vidal states that Buckley never worked for a living in his life. He criticizes everyone, using his "World Go Home" slogan. Other mentions include Buckley comments about Albert Schweitzer, integration, and his attraction for former communists (Paar mentions he has five employees at present fitting this scenario), Vidal mentions that Buckley stated that Harry Truman called Dwight Eisenhower an anti-Semite, which is an irresponsible lie. 
Paar describes Buckley as someone who speaks very quickly and rolls his eyes...very tricky and he has ruined peoples lives. 

Buddy Hackett appears briefly after Gore Vidal.

#18781: CBS REPORTS: THE HOMOSEXUALS
1967-03-07, CBS, 59 min.
Mike Wallace, Dean Rusk, Gore Vidal, Warren Atkins, Hal Cole, James Fisk, Albert Goldman, Lars Larsen

October 27, 1959 - November 4, 1979. 
1980 - Irregular broadcasts thru the 1990's.

An in-depth exploration of Homosexuality. It is a subject that explores the questions, is it a physical or mental illness as understood at that time. Is it a moral crime, or just another product of biological and/or psychological circumstance, such as eye color or a fear of heights?

In 1967 there are millions of homosexuals in the United States and today many are demanding the right to fulfill their needs within the law. 

In interviews, correspondent Mike Wallace talks with homosexual men, who remain anonymous, and members of the Mattachine Society whose chief aim is the reform of laws against homosexuals. 

Those analyzing aspects of homosexuality include sociologists, psychologists, a federal judge, social critic Albert Goldman, and playwright Gore Vidal, who discusses homosexuality in the arts. 

Secretary of State Dean Rusk defends the State Department's policy against hiring homosexuals' which is US policy. Others to give their personal agenda and experiences living as a homosexual include a 19-year-old offender in a public park: homosexual members of clubs and bars, and a metropolitan area frequented by homosexual prostitutes. 

Also reported is a Boise, Idaho incident where a homosexual "scare" sparked a near witch-hunt in the mid 1950's. 

NOTE:
CBS Reports: The Homosexuals, which aired in 1967, was the first time homosexuality was presented on a national network broadcast. "The Homosexuals" was praised for debunking negative stereotypes, but also condemned for generalizations and promoting other stereotypes. LGBT activist Wayne Beset called "The Homosexuals" "the single most destructive hour of antigay propaganda in our nation's history.

NOTE: 
This CBS REPORTS:THE HOMOSEXUALS was the fourth and final broadcast Mike Wallace would report during the entire run of this iconic CBS Television probing and investigating series.

Contains some commercials.  

BROADCAST HISTORY OF CBS REPORTS:

On October 27, 1959, fifteen months after the demise of Edward R. Murrow's SEEIT NOW, the CBS News Department premiered a new incisive, in-depth documentary program entitled CBS REPORTS. It was patterned after Murrow's precedent setting program and employed many of the same production staff, including Murrow's former partner, Fred Friendly. During the first two years of broadcasts which included 27 one hour documentaries, all but five telecasts had either Edward R. Murrow or Harry K. Smith as writer/correspondent.

Murrow reported on eleven programs form October 27, 1959, to March 1, 1961, and Howard K. Smith reported on eighteen programs form November 11, 1959, to February 8, 1962.  

In January 1961 CBS began airing CBS REPORTS as a regular alternate-week series. For most of a full decade CBS REPORTS remained a regular series on various nights, and then shifted to irregular Specials beginning in the 1980's. 


                                
#16421: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1970-09-29, NBC, 36 min.
Johnny Carson, Gore Vidal, Jose Feliciano

October 1, 1962-May 22, 1992. Johnny Carson, host of NBC's network late-night "Tonight Show" reigned for 30 unprecedented years...five times the combined tenure of Steve Allen, and Jack Paar. Carson was impervious to competition, including efforts to dethrone him by Les Crane, Joey Bishop, Merv Griffin, Dick Cavett, Jack Paar, Pat Sajak, Joan Rivers, and Arsenio Hall. Sadly, very few complete "Tonight Show" broadcasts survive during Johnny Carson's first ten years of broadcasting. Around 1965, through the early 1970's, oldest tapes were first erased systematically by orders from myopic NBC executives, to be recycled for purposes of saving money. Ironically, in many cases, these older master tapes were too brittle, and portended probable drop-outs for re-use after being erased. Subsequently blank after being erased, these older questionable master 2" Quad tapes were either sparingly used or never used again for recording new programming and eventually were discarded. Saving thousands of dollars at the time (wiping master tapes for potential re-use) resulted in losing millions of dollars by NBC in today's marketplace, and more importantly wiping thousands of historic TONIGHT SHOW broadcasts, which contain precious personal anecdotes from political, show business, and sports icons of the past.

Guests: Gore Vidal, Jose Feliciano.
#16739: DICK CAVETT SHOW, THE
1971-12-01, ABC, min.
Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer, Dick Cavett

December 29th,1969-January 1st,1975 (ABC) 

Dick Cavett is back on television as ABC's new entrant in the late-night race. The format is desk and sofa five nights a week like the Johnny Carson and Merv Griffin shows. As Cavett sees it, it's the chemistry that counts. His forte:an articulate way with an interview, plus approaches to comedy that range from youthful innocence to the cynicism of WC.Fields. 

Guests: Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer.
