Comedy variety show with Ed as host. A typical episode: Ed opens with some comedy. He gets a phone call telling him three CBS executives are on their way to inspect the studio. It’s Moe, Larry and Shemp. They’re there to cut costs. That’s followed by a Camel commercial and then the Stooges return. They start destroying the set. Helen Forrest comes out and eventually gets to sing. She does, “I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate.” Time for a long bit framed by a Camel commercial. William Frawley shows up to take part. After that, more with the Stooges. Ed wants to get rid of them. Maybe if they got hit on the head with sand bags from above they’ll leave. The Three Stooges sing, “When You Wore A Tulip And I Wore A Big Red Rose.” The whole time Ed tries to position them so they’ll get hit. Of couse Ed is the one that ends up getting crowned. Another Camel commercial and then Ed signs off. He says any resemblence between the Stooges and CBS executives is merely malicious.
As a Stooges fan I had fun watching this show.
