Another embarrassing "Live TV" moment: As Lewis wraps up "When My Baby Smiles at Me", he says his trademark line: "Yes sir! Is everybody happy?" He then tilts forward for his top hat to roll off his head and down his arm. The hat catches the back of his toupee, flipping it down onto his forehead.
The 2nd Emmy Awards ceremony was held a week prior to this telecast (1/27/1950) at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. Texaco Star Theater won the award as Best Kinescope Show. Also nomiated was Studio One, The Fred Waring Show, and The Goldbergs.
Milton Berle also won as Most Outstanding Kinescope Personality. The other nominees were Fran Allison and Arthur Godfrey.
(The Emmys were based in L.A. at the time so live programs originating from New York could only be seen there via filmed kinescope.)
