The Beat Goes On & On & On & On Like Cher's Nose
24 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, this is the height of Sonny & Cher's careers. Actually, when it ran, it was easy to get caught up in the beat going on & there were times it was cute. Cher always had an outrageous outfit showing more skin. She'd always have a put down for Sonny & he would always make jokes about her nose. A lot of Sonny & Chers repartee is owed directly to The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour as it is obvious that is the model used to create it.

There were always a famous guest or two around,usually a skit, then a song. Then there would always be a V A M P -VAMP! There was always a lot of political humor & a little give & take by the stars. Sonny was the one who made the production of the show glow. Cher was music & skin. That pretty much says it all. While it was on, some folks found it to be a pleasant diversion in the days when you'd come home & put your brain away,

Prestige wise, these shows are just barely OK, not a classic. Frankly, re-runs of this show now make you realize why it didn't last long when it ran- it wears out it's welcome about the second show. Yet it keeps going on & on & on regardless. With Sonny gone the show seems to be over. Am not sure if it is age or vanity but Cher's talent seems to be limited to concerts only now. Without Sonny to counter balance her television is gone for Cher now.

Sonny set a world's record for Cher nose jokes during this shows run. As it was a CBS hit, a lot of very good guest stars show up too.
