Caesar's Hour

Show Summary

Lightening strikes twice! This was Sid Caesar's very successful followup to his legendary 'Your Show of Shows'. Joining him from the previous series were Carl Reiner and Howard Morris (Imogene Coco was starring in her own short-lived sit-com.) The female members of the cast changed during the show's run.
The exact format of the series varied from week to week. Sometimes the entire show would be one sketch, other times a take-off on a musical, or a mixture of standard variety show sketches and numbers.
The writing staff on this series top-notch and included, at various times, Bill Persky and Sam Denoff (later of 'The Andy Griffith Show'), Mel Brooks, Reiner, Mel Tolken ('All in the Family') , Larry Gelbart ('M*A*S*H'), Neil Simon, and Selma Diamond ('Night Court').
'Caesar's Hour' was nominated for 15 Emmys, with wins for 'Best Series-one hour or more-1957', two for Carl Reiner (in '57 and '58), two for Nanette Fabray (in '56 and '57), one for Pat Carroll in '57, and one for Sid himself in '57moreless
