Trivia

When the series premiered, it was a filmed sitcom with a musical performance in each episode. Ratings floundered, so in December the format was revised and it became a live sketch-comedy/variety show. The numbers didn't improve, so they reverted to the sitcom format. See more »

Close, but No Cigar (No Pun Intended)
18 August 1999 | by (New York City, New York, USA) – See all my reviews

Following Gracie Allen's retirement from show business, George Burns tried to carry on by himself with his "Burns and Allen" cast and crew -- but fell far short of the mark. Now Mr. Burns, playing himself as usual, was ostensibly a theatrical producer (in a way, almost mirroring his real-life sliding into producing which he would later do with "Mister Ed") tackling the usual problems such producers face (i.e. casting, booking, temperamental stars and the like). Towards the end of this show's one-year run, they attempted to shore it up by adding a live variety show within each episode with guest stars, but in the end it added up to nothing. It wasn't until "The Sunshine Boys" in 1975 that Mr. Burns finally made it from out of Ms. Allen's shadow, as it were.
