After the huge success of "Gomer Pyle,U.S.M.C." in the spring of 1969, CBS executives gave the green light to give Jim Nabors his own weekly variety series and it was one of those type of shows that did very well giving Jim Nabors the opportunity to sing and do musical numbers and so forth. The show premiered on CBS-TV in the fall of 1969,and I had a chance to catch this seldom seen variety series on the E! network. The first show was excellent from the series,and his guest stars were Andy Griffith,Don Knotts,and his co-star from "Gomer Pyle" Frank Sutton. Here is a rare opportunity to catch Jim Nabors as what he does best: singing broadway and classical tunes and his voice was like no other I ever heard before. Truly outstanding! However,his show didn't stay very long and it was cut from the network in the spring of 1971 due to cuts in the programming(the overall elimination of all its shows). Catch it if it comes on.
