I remember this show from the summer of 1975 with a lot of fond memories. The premise seemed to be (in at least one episode) that the cast were tourists on a studio tour. They got left alone and decided to play around and put on their own show. Each of the performers had his/her own "shtick" and played it to the hilt (Wayland Flowers and his lady puppets, at least three celebrity impersonators, beauty queen Kathrine Baumann and her gymnastics act, standup comics such as Billy Crystal, etc.). Each episode featured Madame or Jiffy lipsynching a song while another cast member sat and reacted (a funny bit, like it or not). My friends and I watched and were in hysterics at some of the routines...they were that funny. The other reviewer (thus far) who made the remark that Rod Serling died "just in time" needs to know that Mr. Serling had a droll wit about him (evident in many Twilight Zone and Night Gallery episodes) and that a comedy series would have been a good change of pace. It's very sad he never got that chance. Most of the performers went to success in TV, movies, etc while some others just went on. Something like this is needed on Saturday nights in 2010.
