Rob Reiner hosts a showing of the long-lost films of that wacky old comedy team 'Morton & Hayes'... which is really just an excuse for Christopher Guest, Joe Flaherty & Dick Blasucci to make their own comedy shorts a la Abbott & Costello. Written by msb <suburton@u.washington.edu>

Very Clever Show . Unfortunately Clever does not equal success.
2 March 2008 | by (pa) – See all my reviews

I remember being one the few people to watch this show and thinking how different and clever it is. Rob Reiner would narrate each episode about a fictional Laurel-and-Hardy-esquire comedy act from the golden age of television whose archive footage was lost and recently found. All episodes were in black and white and were made to look exactly like the 1920s. Like early television, episodes had little dialog and were thin on plots. If you enjoyed watching the "Three Stooge" or "Abbott & Costello", this was great show for you. Unfortunately, CBS was not too high on this show and aired it in the middle of the summer. Predictably no one really watched. Even had it aired in the fall, it is doubtful that it would have found an audience as viewers at the time were into younger shows like "Beverly Hills 90210" and have shown that they will not watch nostalgic shows from before like 1960 (ie."Brooklyn Bridge", "Clubhouse", "I'll Fly Away").
