I regularly check in with ItsAboutTV.com to see what I was watching back in the day. December 16 1967 was a Saturday night and we were perusing TV guide to preview Sunday’s top shows, Ed Sullivan (CBS) and the Hollywood Palace (ABC). Here are the guest lineups for each:
Ed Sullivan: Scheduled: Joel Grey of the Broadway musical “Cabaret”; singers Patti Page, Spanky and Our Gang, the Kim Sisters and the Berlin Mozart Choir; impressionist David Frye; comedians Richard Pryor, and Stiller and Meara; and puppet Topo Gigio..
Hollywood Palace: It’s family night at the Palace as host Bing Crosby introduces his wife, Kathryn, daughter Mary Francis and sons Harry and Nathaniel. Also on hand: the singing King Family, comic Louis Nye, Adam “Batman” West and the Marquis Chimps.
Which show would you have watched?
