      • This was the first of six consecutive shows broadcast from CBS's Television City in Hollywood. It's been reported that Ed wanted to start color broadcasting at the start of the 1965-66 season. Since his NYC studio (Studio 50) was not yet equipped for color, Ed temporarily moved his show to the West Coast. This gave CBS time to install color equipment in Studio 50.
        In 1967, Studio 50 was officially re-titled "The Ed Sullivan Theater." The theater is now the home of "The Late Show with David Letterman."

      • The Ed Sullivan Show switched to color starting with this episode (19-Sep-65).
        This was not, however, the first color Ed Sullivan episode. On August 22, 1954, CBS broadcast a "Toast of the Town" show in color. Unfortunately, the 22-Aug-54 show survives only as a B&W kinescope.
