  • Notes

    • Carol Channing and Ginger Rogers were cute as they sat up there like a couple of teenagers, answering the panel's questions. Their identities were guessed fairly quickly, but it didn't matter, as they provided some fun early on. The same can be said of everyone's favorite redhead, Lucy. The way she answered the questions had the audience in stitches. She also announced that her current program, "The Lucy Show," was changing times to 8:30 PM on Monday nights, a half an hour earlier than it came on the previous season. Guest panelist Mike Douglas performed well in his first appearance. He had experience though, since he was in the middle of hosting his highly successful daytime talk show. "The Mike Douglas Show" was on the air from 1961 to 1982. In fact, he made up a "trinity" of popular talk show hosts which also included Merv Griffin and, of course, Johnny Carson. Douglas' talk show also provided some of the most historical moments on television. In 1972, John Lennon and Yoko Ono co-hosted with him for a week. Their guests that week ranged from rocker Chuck Berry to radical leader Jerry Rubin of the Chicago 7, and it is still talked about today. Also, Douglas was indirectly responsible for one of television's biggest hits. On one broadcast, he had as his guests Donny and Marie Osmond. Many who saw that particular episode were impressed by the chemistry the brother and sister duo had together, and this led to their popular 1976-1979 variety show, "Donny and Marie." - Sargebri (2004)
