The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour (1988)

Show Summary

Almost twenty years after The Smothers Brothers were abruptly removed from the air, Tom and Dick tried it again with The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.
Following a 20th Anniversary special that was a ratings smash, the two brothers, once again on CBS, thought they could re-capture the magic they had in the late 1960s.
The format of the show was basically the same, a variety show with guest stars, musical performances, comedy skits, and stand-up routines combined with the latest state of the art visual effects.
Despite the show being nominated for five Emmys, after two seasons of increasingly lack luster numbers and continually shifting nights, the new show was finally pulled.
