Trivia

The show started 1961 in Cleveland, when Westinghouse owned Channel 3 and called it KYW. When Westinghouse won a court case against NBC in 1965, they opted to own Philadelphia's Channel 3, taking "KYW" call letters and The Mike Douglas Show with them. New studios for the show were on Walnut Street, but moved to KYW headquarters at 5th and Market Streets near Independence Hall. Moved in 1978 to Los Angeles. See more »

From Hollywood.....Its The Mike Douglas Show
10 June 2006 | by (Durham,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

"THE MIKE DOUGLAS SHOW"-airing in syndication from 1961 until 1982,was without a doubt one of the greatest talk shows of its day. Mixed in with a lot variety,Mike Douglas was multi-talented:charismatic,funny, smart,dynamic,and all around great guy. Its no wonder that his daily weekday afternoon talk show format lasted 21 years on television,and it set the standard for those to follow.

When you saw THE MIKE DOUGLAS SHOW,you saw entertainment at its finest. It no wonder that some of the guest stars that were on the show were the best ever that made numerous appearances on his show,sometimes as co-hosts and onward to more greater responsibility. And did he ever have the best on there. From novelist Jacqueline Susann(Valley Of The Dolls)to polticial figures like F. Lee Bailey to entertainment figures ranging from Joan Crawford to Bette Davis and further on to include Patty Duke to Barbara Streisand,Bob Hope,Rosemary Clooney,Florence Henderson,Judy Garland,Anita Bryant,Shirley Jones,David Brinkley to Barbara Walters to even others like Frank Sinatra,Sammy Davis,Jr., Merv Griffin,Lucille Ball,Rick Nelson,Angie Dickinson,Johnny Carson to Dick Cavett,Bill Cosby and even Roger Moore made numerous appearances on his show.

But the music MIKE DOUGLAS had....Yes,the great ones which consisted of some of the best musical acts out there and Mike Douglas had them on his daily variety talk show. From the legendary Sam Cooke to Liza Minnelli,to the Jackson Five(The Jacksons)with a nine-year old dynamic singer named Micheal Jackson that would change the course of music and not to mention the Godfather of Soul himself....James Brown!!! Others were added into this as well including the BEST soul music of that era and the best rock groups of that era were on his show!!

Mike Douglas was the best,and there will never be another ever!!
