CBS (ended 1967)
|It was interesting to see Herb Shriner; I had heard of him but never seen him.|
|I thought Sam Levinson was pretty lame compared to Herb Shriner.|
|Does anybody know the original dates of any of the eight shows GSN televised?|
I know there were references to Thanksgiving, New Years Eve and The Levenson show was aired sometime in late March 1957. If you freeze frame the picture after the last GSN break you can make out an ad for CBS's production of "Cinderalla" which was broadcast on March 31,1957.
|This show had a similar history to TNTS. "Two For The Money" left the network in Sept. of 1956. It was revived in March, 1957. I would guess that Herb Shriner was not available to continue as the host. Sam Levenson was a "guest" host when Herb would take a summer vacation so I would guess this is why he was hired to replace Herb. I believe the show only lasted about 8 months with Sam as the host.|
