Jack Benny was a regular on his own radio program since 1932. He brought the program, with his underplayed humor, to television along with his radio regulars. Jack, who remained thirty-nine-years-old, kept his money in his basement and drove his old Maxwell car just as he had done on the radio.

(1944), season two, episode three, "Autolight", and co-starring Barbara Stanwyck
proved to be so popular that Jack Benny
wanted to rebroadcast it. Legal wrangling with MGM resulted in this not happening until 1959. See more
When the show was originally broadcast live, the program introduction was "From Television City in Hollywood..." CBS Television City is in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles, not in Hollywood. See more
