      • George Carlin would recall his only 1968 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show for the strangest act of censorship. Sullivan's people told Carlin he could only do one of the two harder-edged pieces he had planned. One was about George Wallace and his comments about "pointy-headed intellectuals" (Carlin referred to the Ku Klux Klan), the other was about "little crimes" Americans don't care about, including genocide. Carlin told the genocide joke as a protest to the Vietnam War.

      • For the next three weeks, reruns were aired due to a strike by the American Federation of Musicians union. (The "28-day strike" lasted from 30-Oct-68 through 28-Nov-68.)
