AIRED:
5th Season Premiere. Series now based in Hollywood. Guests:

Also: In the big opening, Steve drives up to NBC Burbank with dancers on the roof and the regulars to greet him. A spoof of Khrushchev's (Nye) visit to the U.S. has Knotts as Sinatra, Dayton Allen as a farmer, and Harrington as Dean Martin. A look at summer TV has Mr. Clean leaving dirty footprints on a floor, and a Miss America pageant contestant who stars a striptease. "Who's Who in TV" parodies David Susskind (Steve), Edward R. Murrow (Knotts) and Dayton Allen as an Olivier-type who's secretly Groucho Marx. Big band number from Les Brown and his Band of Renown.moreless
