Trivia

During the second season, George Burns realized it would be more practical to shoot the show on film rather than broadcast live. CBS wouldn't increase the budget to accommodate this extravagance, so Burns invested his own funds and founded McCadden Productions, a company through which he produced this series and many other television projects in the 1950s-'60s.

The "Classic" of Classic TV
3 January 1999 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

This is the television show that broke all the molds. There was no comedienne at the time (or for that matter, any time) better than Gracie! No one could act that dumb! She was poetry to watch. As George used to say, he stood while Gracie talked! What a pair they were. If you can find it, rent the episode about the checkbook. I got dizzy just watching! We can only hope that Nick at Nite goes back further than the 60s for the real classics of TV!
