Debuted on Christmas Eve, 1948 on NBC. Switched to CBS in October 1950 but would revert back to NBC in September 1955 until its final weekly broadcast on 12 June 1963. From time to time the show would return still bearing the title "The Perry Como Show", but, like the "Hallmark Hall of Fame", not as a weekly series. Perry remained quite popular and would continue doing irregular specials through 1966 along with his ubiquitous Christmas shows. See more »
In 1957, NBC was occasionally showing TV color on some of their shows. I remember seeing the ad for one particular color show that year where they headlined...Color TV and Hedy, too..or something to that effect. I searched high and low for a place that had color TV to view it, but the only ones that i did come across were in bars and I was not of the proper age..so I had to settle for the black and white version. It turned out that Hedy, according to the critics of that day, was 'the' show. She was in almost every scene, from a walk on as a cigarette girl, to an old lady with s slight hunchback and then at the finale, playing drums and singing with Perry the hit of that day..."Round and Round". It was really an excellent show and what really surprised me, was Hedy lamarr. I had never seen her this way and she was wonderful as the critics claimed. She must of been around 42 years old at that time. I would love to see that show again. Are any of his shows on DVD?
