Trivia

Johnny Carson asks if Lucy is at NBC to find a new pilot for Don Rickles. Rickles had starred in NBC's sitcom "CPO Sharkey" from 1976 to 1978. He was also a guest star on "The Lucy Show" in 1967. In 1976, Johnny Carson impulsively crashed the show mid-taping, while he was shooting "Tonight" at his nearby studio. See more »
