#13213: STEVE ALLEN SHOW, THE
1957-09-15, NBC, 9 min.
Don Knotts, Steve Allen, Eddie Fisher, Ralph Edwards, John Payne, George Gobel, Gisele McKenzie, Tennessee Ernie Ford

 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.      

Guests include Tennessee Ernie Ford, John Payne, Gisele McKenzie, Eddie Fisher, and George Gobel. A preview of the 1957 Fall season on NBC.

#5742: TOMORROW SHOW WITH TOM SNYDER, THE
1974-12-27, WNBC, 58 min.
Steve Allen, John Rich, Ralph Edwards, Tom Snyder, Flip Wilson, Buffalo Bob Smith

October 15, 1973-January 28, 1982.
 
This program is a repeat of the live broadcast aired the night of the 26th Emmy Awards, May 28, 1974. 
Tom Snyder introduces the show telling his audience that the show is a repeat, and that when it was aired live he did not know that there would be surprises unknown to him (Flip Wilson presents the Emmy Award to Snyder who won earlier that night for Outstanding Program and Individual Achievement). Wilson states that Tom Snyder is a "People Star."  

This broadcast featured many anecdotal remembrances related to live television and personal experiences in the past by its four guests, Steve Allen, John Rich, Ralph Edwards and Buffalo Bob Smith. Each gives their opinion if the Golden Age of Television was superior to television of today. 

Also discussed are the Emmy Awards presented earlier that evening, which ran long resulting in the Tomorrow Show airing live beginning at 1:30am. All on the panel including Tom Snyder considered the Emmy Awards broadcast boring, each stating their reasons. 

One of the outstanding examples of why The Tomorrow Show hosted by Tom Snyder was so popular to late night audiences of the time.

An hour-long talk show hosted by Tom Snyder. Network television's first entry into late-late-night programming on weeknights Monday thru Thursday, usually broadcasting on tape 1 AM to 2 AM. "Tomorrow" was expanded to 90 minutes on September 16, 1980.

NOTE: Originally broadcast Live on May 28, 1974. After its re-run the tape was not used again and is considered lost.
