This is a wonderful show in reruns, 9 August 2003
Author: William (wmattifo) from Lubbock, TX

They have reruns of this show on PBS and they are wonderful. Tennessee Ernie Ford is a treasure and he can sing, tell jokes, or just make you feel right at home. He would be a star in any generation and his easy, friendly style is a pleasure to watch. Many older family members have told me that Tennessee and Dean Martin were the most popular stars of the 1960's because everyone felt they were members of their families. This show is good to watch and you'll enjoy it. It is classic family viewing.
