Renovating the theater for the show required restructuring the outside marque, installing an electric "Jerry Lewis Show" sign atop the marque. When ABC-TV pulled the plug, canceling the program, the replacement show, The Hollywood Palace
(1964) replaced the theatre designation ("The Jerry Lewis Theatre"). In 1970 when "the Hollywood Palace" was canceled, the sign remained thee for many years until ABC Television sold the property. ABC TV had two properties on Vine Street which were used for television/audience programs. The Lawrence Welk Show
(1951) became a syndicated program and was moved off the ABC Prospect and Talmadge Studio lot into the Palace Theatre; then it was moved to CBS Television City at Fairfax and Beverly, taping shows until the production was shut down in the late 1980s. See more
