The Jerry Lewis Show (1963)

Show Summary

The Jerry Lewis Show was a two-hour variety show which was broadcast live on the ABC network. The network had high hopes for Lewis, signing him to a 5-year contract for a reported $35 million. ABC also purchased the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles and re-christened it "The Jerry Lewis Theater."
The Jerry Lewis Show premiered on September 21, 1963, but by Thanksgiving 1963 it was apparent that the show was not a success. The final "Jerry Lewis Show" aired on December 21, 1963. Two weeks later it was replaced by The Hollywood Palace.
