Comedy/variety show co-hosted by the eponymous Lennon Sisters and Jimmy Durante. This family-oriented variety series tried hard, but high budgets, top-name guests, and the obviously sincere efforts of everyone involved just couldn't overcome a poor concept. Durante's and the Lennons' styles just didn't mesh, and the show was cancelled after a single season. Written by

The Lennon Sisters were a staple on the Saturday night ABC-TV Lawrence Welk music variety hour show. ABC TV program executives had brainstormed on springing the popular "sister act" on to their own variety hour, which Lawence Welk had approved. Fearing the sisters could not carry not sustain a full hour, ABC TV joined Jimmy Durante as their co-host. Durante's appearances on the Hollywood Palace had invigorated his career with ABC acknowledging his viewing audience popularity. The "Jimmy Durante presents The Lennon Sisters" show was scheduled during the mid week schedule. See more
