A Howard Cosell variety show. I think Roone was smoking something when he came up with this idea. The one classic moment I will always remember on the show was Howard and Barbara Walters singing a duet. This show was soooo bad that it actually has camp value. ( song and dance routines with Ali and OJ for instance) One interesting point was SNL couldn't use live in their title because Howard had it in his. They had to say "Live! it's Saturday Night." When the finally canceled this show after a year SN became SNL. I was actually a fan of Cosell when he was covering sports. Anyone who remembers Monday Night Football when Howard was doing it will remember it was an EVENT! After he left the show it just became another game.
