      • Malcolm Macfarlane, editor of BING magazine, provided the following reviews: "New season. Bing Crosby returns to host the season's premiere, sing with George Burns and act in a comedy sketch with Sid Caesar and Joyce Jameson about a harassed husband in a split-level house. Burns brags about his talents as a vocalist. Crosby introduces opera soprano, Jane Marsh, recent winner of the Tchaikovsky contest in Moscow, for an aria from 'La Boheme' and variety novelties like the Mamas and the Papas, a French pantomimist, a trapeze act and dancer-singer, Lola Falana."
        ('Los Angeles Herald Examiner' 17th September 1966)

        "'Hollywood Palace' is basking in its reputation as one of the better produced variety shows. Nick Vanoff and Bill Harbach seem to be able to extract a maximum from each act and a distinguished emcee gives gloss to the show and provides the acts with an excellent setting.
        In its premiere for the new season, Bing Crosby paced the proceedings, imparting his own brand of affability and easy-going charm. Crosby contributed as a singer, comedian and conferencier and rated high in each sector. As far as additional name value, the show had its share. Sid Caesar, in a slimmer package, looked like his old self. . . his skit with Joyce Jameson, portraying suburbanites whose home Crosby visited, had the air of exaggerated truth. It had funny moments and excellent execution."
