During the first two seasons "Burns & Allen" was on every second week, alternating with various other series on CBS. In season one it alternated with Starlight Theatre (1950), in season two it first alternated with The Garry Moore Show (1950), then "Star of the Family" (1950)_ and ultimately "The Al Pearce Show" (1952)_. It became a weekly show in season three. See more »
This show was, please don't kill me for saying this, even better than "I Love Lucy". Lucy was good, but this was better. Gracie and Blanche(Bea Benederett, voice of Betty Rubble and original choice for Ethel Mertz) would pull one crazy stunt after another. Meanwhile Bill Goodwin(later replaced by Harry Von Zell) would attract all the girls, and George would step out of the scene to narrate(A technique now used in the Disney cartoon show "The Weekenders"). Gracie's "Illogical logic", as George called it, cracks you up every time. By the way, the radio version featured music of Meredith Wilson(famous for writing "The Music Man").
