This was a very pleasant sitcom from the fifties which highlights the comedic talents of Ann Sothern. Miss Sothern was beautiful and witty and the series, which was set at a New York talent agency, had a very good supporting cast as well. As Mr. Sands, Susie's boss, we have Don Porter who had a definite chemistry with Miss Sothern. As Violet Praskins we have Ann Tyrell, who is sort of an ersatz Ethel Mertz. The episodes that I have on my DVD are a good cross-section of shows for the series. One of the best has Zasu Pitts as a guest star. This series ended in 1957 after Ann had a fight with producer Jack Chertok over residuals. There was talk of continuing the series with another actress, so the reruns were titled Susie. The following year, Ann Sothern came back with "The Ann Sothern Show" which cast Ann as Katy O'Connor, the assistant manager of the Bartley House hotel. Cast as her boss was Ernest Truex, but by mid-season of it's first year, Don Porter was brought back to play her boss once again. Ann Tyrell was back this time as Olive.
