Trivia

This was the first network show to originate from Hollywood. Since the show was aired live and it was technically impossible to air a live broadcast coast-to-coast in the 1940s, each episode was shown via kinescope on the East Coast several weeks later. See more »

Saw one episode.

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.
