  • Notes

    • Welcome back, Bennett! Bennett returns from his four week vacation and he hasn't lost a step. Almost immediately, he and John are trading barbs again. More importantly, Bennett manages to guess the occupation of the first contestant. However, it was an average night, as they were unable to guess the second contestant's occupation as the head of the Arbitron Rating Service. Coincidentally, Arbitron's main competitor was also a WML contestant on February 16, 1964: A.C. Nielsen, Jr., founder of the A.C. Nielsen Rating Service. On that show, after the panel identified Nielsen, they began showing him false affection in a funny attempt to boost their ratings! This time however, they did not try to butter up the head of Arbitron! Gordon and Sheila MacRae were funny as usual. They had just finished an appearance on the Bell Telephone Hour. They were on their way to see the Broadway opening of "Drat! The Cat!" featuring Elliott Gould, Barbra Streisand's then-current husband, and a young Lesley Ann Warren. This was a few years before Miss Warren replaced Barbara Bain on "Mission: Impossible," and several years before she appeared in the music video for the Aerosmith hit, "Janie's Got a Gun." Jack Jones, who was a mystery guest a few weeks earlier, did an acceptable job, even though he really didn't get a chance to ask too many questions. - Sargebri (2004)
