      • Berle would appear on the cover of Newsweek magazine in just four months, dressed as this week's guest Carmen Miranda. The cover story for that May 16,1949 edition is "Milton Berle: Television's Whirling Dervish."

      • On this episode, Berle celebrates the opening of the coaxial cable to the midwest.
        AT&T had just opened two coaxial cables between Cleveland and Philadelphia, making it possible for the first time for TV shows to be telecast live between the network's east coast and midwest stations. Previously, shows like Berle's had to be kinescoped for air on NBC's midwest network of stations in Chicago, St. Louis, Milwaukee, Toledo, Detroit, and Buffalo. Cities previously connected by coaxial on the east coast were New York, Washington, D.C., Boston and Richmond. ( A few other stations that were within the signal area of interconnected stations would pick the programs up off the air and re-broadcast them live.)
        Since there were four networks and only two cables, the nets would have to divide up their time on the coaxial.
