#5911: CHEVY SHOW: "HAPPIEST DAY, THE"
1961-04-23, WNBC, 54 min.
Charlie Ruggles, Craig Stevens, Janis Paige, Wally Cox, Jack Carson, Bea Benaderet, Alex Stordahl

December 8, 1957-June 18, 1961. 
Programs not hosted by Dinah Shore (every 4th week during the season of 1957-58 and 1958-59, more often thereafter until June 1961) were known as "The Chevy Show." 

Presented on "THE CHEVY SHOW." which was also a weekly summer replacement for "The Dinah Shore Chevy Show" in 1958 and 1959. June 22, 1958 to September 27, 1959, with rotating hosts Janet Blair, John Raitt and Edie Adams. The format was a mixed bag of popular and classical music, skits and monologues. During the summer run of 1959 (June 7, 1959 to September 27, 1959), Blair and Raitt returned as co-hosts. Dorothy Kirsten appeared during both seasons.

 Live musical with interesting premise. Seems things are in a miserable state of Earth, so a heavenly messenger is sent down to deliver a "commercial" over a world-wide television network. The angel tells his viewers that their lives can be free from worries about such trivial maters as money and health. He announces he'll prove his point by showing a day in the life of young Kathy Hewitt, assisted by himself as her guardian angel.

Janis Paige sings, "Too Old," and joins Craig Stevens in "Dancing in a Dream." Axel Stordahl conducts the orchestra.

#16766: TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, THE
1971-12-28, NBC, min.
Johnny Carson, Ed McMahon, Julius Sumner Miller, Alexis Smith, Craig Stevens, John McGiver

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: Craig Stevens, Alexis Smith, John McGiver, Professor Julius Sumner Miller.
#7779: BREAK THE BANK
1976-05-06, ABC, 30 min.
Joey Bishop, Craig Stevens, Jimmie Walker, Liz Torres, Meredith MacRae, Tom Kennedy, Elayne Boosler, Buzz Aldrin, Jaye P Morgan, Lonnie Shorr

 April 12, 1976 - July 23, 1976 (76 first run episodes)
September 18, 1976 - February 26, 1977 (19 first run episodes)
(Re-runs beginning in February 29, 1977 to September 11, 1977)

Break the Bank had two separate runs on American television. The first was as a daily series that aired from April 12 to July 23, 1976, on ABC, airing at 2:30 p.m. Eastern/1:30 Central. Although the series was popular, the network canceled it in order to expand the soap operas One Life to Live and General Hospital, both of which followed it on the daytime schedule, from 30 minutes to 45 minutes. The show quickly returned as a weekly syndicated game from September 18, 1976, to September 11, 1977.

The ABC daytime series had 76 episodes, including the 3/23 and 5/20 pilots. The syndicated series had 24 episodes with 5 of them being rerun. The last episode for the entire series was on February 26, 1977, with reruns airing until September 11th of that year. In 1994, GSN added Break the Bank to their lineup. This continued until 1997, and since then, no episodes from the series have been broadcast on television again. Currently, 17 episodes from the original Tom Kennedy series and 3 episodes from the syndicated Jack Barry series have been uploaded and steam on YouTube.

NOTE: complete with commercials.
