Was that REALLY Steve Allen who darted by when Tom Poston was walking on the set? It must have been! During the introductions, Arlene stated, with no explanation, that bumping into Tom Poston was the exclusive privilege of Steve Allen. Moments later when Tom walked on stage, a man darted across the entrance opening from left to right. Another clue: Later on during the program, Tom faltered as if not knowing what question to ask. He hesitantly stated he'd been a guest panelist many times, and had always wanted to ask the following question. He then stood up, and asked the challenger if "it's bigger than my bread basket" while holding his stomach! The camera zoomed in on his stomach. In addition, Tom Poston is part of the cast of The Steve Allen Show. - Suzanne (2003)
