Welshnick in his review get's a few things wrong...
Morecambe & Wise left the BBC after the 1977 Christmas special and were with ITV until Eric's early death.
Tommy & Bobby made 8 series (and specials) of The Cannon & Ball show between 1979 & 1988 which is a lot longer than a couple of years (they were such big stars in the early '80's that they even made the big screen with 'The Boy's in blue' - which I have a soft spot for even though it's not great). The film was a remake of 'Ask A Policeman' starring Will Hay.
As an aside Sid Green's era of the show saw a lot of the sketches he'd written for Morecambe and Wise in the '60's were reworked...In the pre-video days this was easier to do...Now both are out on DVD it makes comparisons easier.
After this they did a sitcom and game show (neither of which really worked).
After a rocky period both men found the lord and over the last few years have regained their position of a much loved act, If you get a chance to see then live do.
