  • After the intro, the monologue had Dick trying to convince us John Wayne was going to be on again. Then the party, the first Sock It To Me, and the news. After that were several short bits. Coming back from the break, the second Sock It To Me, several I've Got A Secrets, and a poem from Henry. New Talent Time followed, with Richard Dawson as a bird caller and Kaye Ballard as a protest singer. More short bits, and a brief joke wall segment. Then the third Sock It To Me and Mod Mod World about fashion and glamour. Following was the classified ads, and Rosmenko bringing back another act from behind the Iron Curtain, the Holyecki sisters(Eileen, Judy, Goldie and Pam).
