      • Bob Hope may have regretted his appearance on this show. According to a story in the New York Times, dated November 18, 1957, Timex dropped sponsorship of Hope's TV show due to the fact that he appeared on Sinatra's show which was sponsored, in part, by the Bulova Watch Company. Hope's NBC show was missing for a few weeks until Chrysler/Plymouth took over sponsorship of his show.

      • Lee sings "He's My Guy" which is one of the songs she performed on her album The Man I Love. Sinatra conducted the orchestra for the album at the July 1957 recording sessions

      • The premiere episode was an hour long. Subsequent episodes were thirty minutes in length.

      • Reviews from two of the NY papers:
        John Crosby of The New York Herald Tribune said "Sinatra has bounced back to become the hottest thing in Show Business, and for very good reason. He is one hell of a performer and his first TV show was a triumph in almost all departments." Jack Gould of The New York Times felt otherwise "Mr. Sinatra's problems were those that seemed to be afflicting most vocalists who are going out on their own this fall. When he was singing the program held our attention and he did some excellent numbers . . . . But an hour's show cannot be sustained by one man alone and Mr. Sinatra's writers let him down badly. His patter with Bob Hope was second rate, and their sketch with Kim Novak never came off."
