  • Faye Emerson and Frank Sinatra Show

    Full Episode

    S 1 : Ep 2 - 1/28/51

    Jack's guests are TV hostess Faye Emerson and singer Frank Sinatra. Benny and Sinatra do a skit about New York City and Frank performs "Take My Love". From his dressing room Jack phones Mary to ask how he looks on TV; she confuses him with Sinatra. Jack tells Faye Emerson he should be her love interest in her new romance movie. To prove he's more than a comedian, he does a dramatic scene with her that's supposed to end in a kiss. Sinatra walks in, makes fun of Jack's delivery, and steals the kiss for himself. Frank Fontaine portrays John L.T. Savonie, a character that he would later use as Crazy Guggenheim on Jackie Gleason and his American Scene Magazine. In a running gag, he recites his endless Social Security number.moreless
  • Premiere Show

    Full Episode

    S 1 : Ep 1 - 10/28/50

    The Sportsmen Quartet introduce the premiere show with "There's No Business Like Show Business". The monologue and the sketch are about how Jack decided on doing television and putting the first show together. After an interruption from TV technician Mel Blanc to wave to his Aunt Sophie, the show flashes back to how Jack got Dinah Shore to be his guest.
    At his house, Rochester sings "My Blue Heaven", and Mr. Kitzel comes by to wish Jack good luck. Jack calls Dinah Shore on his pay phone to get her to do his show and she pitches him a song she wants to do on the program.
    Back onstage, Ken Murray visits to wish Jack well, and Dinah comes out to sing "Tess' Torch Song", "I Oughta Know More About You" and the Lucky commercial with the Sportsmen. Jack closes the program by pulling out his violin and playing, which immediately causes the live audience to stand up and exit the studio.moreless
