Episode Summary

EDIT
6/3/1952
AIRED:

Berle's scheduled guests this week include: vocalist Billy Eckstine; Dorothy Collins; comedians Morey Amsterdam and Henny Youngman; musical/comedy performer Jack Durant; Kenny Sharpe; actor Jack Albertson; Billy Barty; acrobat and trampoline act The Schaller Brothers; actress/singer Mary Beth Hughes; Jimmy Nelson; and the Harriet Hoctor Dancers.
Berle refuses to sign a contract for next season, so the Texaco rep (Albertson) threatens to replace him with Amsterdam or Youngman; Collins sings "Treat Me Rough"; the finale, "Around the Town", looks at entertainment offered at various New York City locations.

      • Berle performed a sketch in this episode that parodied Phil Spitalny and His All-Girl Orchestra and their program The Hour of Charm. Spitalny felt the burlesque belittled his group and sought a court order to prevent the kinescope from being shown on NBC's non-connected stations. His efforts only garnered more attention for Berle.
