Saw one episode.
14 April 2003 | by Inkwell765See all my reviews

This was an early comedy/variety show.The only episode I saw, and probably the easiest to find, is the show guest starring The Three Stooges. They appear as "CBS Executives" and are literally cutting up the scenery! (literally) the show was sponsored by Camel Cigarettes and Wynn has a skit selling cigarettes from a display of cigarettes at least 6 feet high. Next weeks guest star, William Frawley, drops in for a carton and wants the one on the bottom. "He probably won't be on next week's show." With only one show to judge by, I have to say it was a good show in it's day, very similar to later variety shows like "Sonny & Cher, Donny & Marie, ect.
