      • The August 22, 1954 show was originally broadcast in color (making this the first color episode). Unfortunately, it only survives as a B&W kinescope. This appears to have been a one-time color test. All of the other other 1950s episodes were in black & white.

        It was not until September 19, 1965, that "Ed Sullivan" switched to color on a regular (permanent) basis.
