Trivia

ABC TV leased/owned the television studio/stage where the Joey Bishop Late Night Interview-talk show was taped. Located South of The Hollywood Palace Theater at Vine Street and Hollywood Boulevard, below Sunset Blvd., at Fountain and 1313 Vine Street. The original radio studio belonged to the Don Lee Broadcasting Network. The main building's foyer centered the reception area, with two audience theaters to the left (larger) and to the right (smaller) with a rear parking area and delivery dock at he back of the building. Offices were located on the second floor of the building. The Joey Bishop Show was located in the larger left side of the building. The other theater-studio, on the right of the foyer, was used for game shows. The Academy of Motion Picture and Sciences have taken over the property in the 2000's, renaming the property "Linwood Dunn Theater". See more »

Regis was Joey's foil
20 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was the series editor for The Joey Bishop (talk) Show, on ABC late night, as I had been on its equally short run predecessor, The Les Crane Show. The Crane show originated in New York as a genuine alternative to the other late night talk shows like Tonight. ABC got cold feet, decided to make the show more conventional, and moved it to Hollywood.

With nothing to distinguish itself from the competition, the tamed down Les Crane Show met a swift death. ABC needed someone new to front the Crane show and hit upon Joey Bishop. The brass were hoping that some of the Rat Pack heat would rub off.

It didn't. In fact, Joey was cold -- rather than cool.

I also need to correct the credits listed in this site. Regis Philbin was the series announcer/foil for the run of the show, not a three time guest as posted. The casting of Regis and Joey made for an odd, and not very humorous pairing.

Joey always seemed uncomfortable as ringmaster. His deadpan act was designed to react to outrageous actions. The show had little in the way of the outrageous about it, leaving Joey with little to react to.

Regis had yet to find the style he would develop a decade later as a morning talk host is Los Angeles, first on KHJ, and then on KABC. The KABC show was moved to New York and syndicated, where it still runs today.

The idea of Regis playing second banana to Joey, a second banana himself, made for a weak relationship in an even weaker show.

The somewhat brittle, but always interesting Dick Cavett took over the time slot, the show was moved to New York, and the guests much more interesting. The Dick Cavett Show, in its prime, was infinitely more interesting than Joey's mercifully short run.
