Storyline

"The All-Night Show" was North America's first regular late-night marathon, running live nightly from after sign-off until 6:00 AM. The format was a montage of old films, clips, episodics, guest appearances and special treats served up by your host Chuck the Security Guard and his cameraman buddies Ryerson Dupont and P.B. Leonard, all of whom had supposedly thrown the station back on-air in the wee hours when management was away. Written by Michael Lennick <michael@foolishearthling.com>

Updating important information on the show and its production crew
17 September 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just to update this shows accurate information the creator and producer of the ALL NIGHT SHOW was Jeff Silverman. The Executive producer was David Bluestein. The president of the station that allowed the show to go on air was Dan Iannuzzi. Ms. Michelle Lea was the shows video editor and Bob and Claire Lamarche were the live on air master control operators. It would be a shame to not include these names when discussing the show. These people should be included at the top of the listings along with the current names. The show was produced from the MTV channel 47 building in Toronto. The show was the precursor to several other shows today. As an example, the show attempted to have a "pitchman" segment similar to today's home shopping network, where a pitchman has fifteen minutes to "pitch" the audience and sell them their products. The show attempted to get real operations from local hospital but was turned down because the hospitals felt that people watching might attempt to operate on themselves. The show ran old commercials and out-takes before anyone else. In fact, a tape of these old spots and out-takes were sent to Dick Clarks company after the show ended and two or three years before he started his "Funny Commercial" shows. The show was truly ahead of its time.
