The All-Night Show (1980)
Updating important information on the show and its production crew
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.
