(1) "LIVE" WATCH: Tonight's live transmission was the 18th known show on which the word "live" was cut from the intro on the kinescope recording, only once again, transitioning as "And now...[click] --ve from New York..."
(2) JACK PALANCE: "The Greatest Show On Earth" was not the last regular series Mr. Palance would be involved with. More than a decade after tonight's show, he played the role of "Lt. Alex Bronkov" on the short-lived TV series "Bronk" which ran on CBS from September 21, 1975 to July 18, 1976. Ironically, the program ran on Sundays from 10:00-11:00 P.M., the second half-hour of which was once occupied by "WML?" The Emmy-nominated "Bronk's" executive producers were Bruce Geller (of "Mission: Impossible" fame) and series creator Carroll O'Connor (who played "Archie Bunker" on the ground-breaking 1971-1979 sitcom "All in the Family" and its 1979-1983 sequel "Archie Bunker's Place").
(3) BAD PUN ALERT: In a recurring reference to the "crow" story of two weeks previous, Bennett told another tale, which, as he did from time to time with other bad puns, he attributed to "our panel moderator." Tonight's yarn was about a member of the Crow Indian tribe who came down with the sniffles and voiced his desire to the Indian Chief by saying, "A bit of linen for which I hanker, Chief." The last two words of Bennett's punch line, when strung together, made up a play on the word "handkerchief."
(4) "WML?" CREW CREDITS WATCH: For the second week in a row, Ted Miller is substituting for Carl Schutzman as technical director. Also, André St. Laurent is filling in for regular associate director Dan F. Smith.
(5) "BEST TO YOU" - TWICE - FOR THE JACK PALANCE TRIBUTE: GSN aired this episode on November 20, 2006 as a tribute to Jack Palance, who died on November 10, 2006. Ironically, on that day, this Kellogg's-sponsored show immediately followed GSN's "regular" "WML?" airing of EPISODE #755 of March 14, 1965, where the cereal maker was the opening sponsor. Prior to the JACK PALANCE TRIBUTE airing, this episode had last aired in regular rotation on June 22, 2006. - W-B (2006)
