and white musical comedy series consisting of six acts, each lasting one
hour. These acts featured talented, young performers, of which a few
were already established television personalities. On Broadway Tonight
gave the others their debut or early appearances on national television,
from where they went on to attain stardom. The more famous among them
are Judy Garland, Rod Perry, Carol Lawrence and Allan Sherman. The
lively Rudy Vallee hosted the show.
