a.k.a. Toast of the Town (1948-1955)

June 20, 1948 - March 28, 1971
CBS Variety Series- 1065 Episodes

Host:
Ed Sullivan

Regulars:
Ray Bloch & His Orchestra
The June Taylor Dancers.

Every Sunday night for more than two decades this
homely newspaper columnist with peculiar diction
and awkward gestures brought an incredible variety
of entertainment into American homes. No pandering
to the lowest common denominator here, there was
grand opera and the latest rock stars,

classical ballet and leggy Broadway showgirls,
slapstick comedy and recitations from great dramatic
writings, often juxtaposed on a single telecast.

Viewers loved it! Making The Ed Sullivan Show the
longest-running variety show in television history!

This long-running variety series was originally titled
"Toast of the Town." On September 25, 1955 (the beginning of
the 8th season), the show was re-titled "The Ed Sullivan Show."
