Renovating the theater for the "Jerry Lewis Show" required restructuring the outside marque, installing an electric "Jerry Lewis Show" sign atop the marque. When ABC TV pulled the plug, canceling the Jerry Lewis program, the replacement TV Variety show "The Hollywood Palace" replaced the theatre designation - The Jerry Lewis Theatre. In 1970 when "the Hollywood Palace" was canceled, the sign remained many years until ABC Television sold the property. ABC TV had two properties on Vine Street which were used for Television/audience involved programs. The Lawrence Welk show became a syndicated program, and was moved off the ABC Prospect and Talmadge Studio lot into the Palace Theatre; then the Welk show moved to CBS Television City at Fairfax and Beverly, taping shows until the production was shut down in the late 80's.
