Dean & Jerry & Tony & Jeff: This Week on TV CONFIDENTIAL

TV CONFIDENTIAL with Ed Robertson and Frankie Montiforte

Tony Figueroa joins Frankie Montiforte and Ed Robertson in our first hour as we remember Patrick McGoohan (Danger Man, The Prisoner), Ricardo Montalban (Fantasy Island) and the marks they left in film and television, on and off the screen. Tony also introduces a new segment he'll be doing for our program ("This Week in Television History"), as well as leads us in an interesting discussion on the long-running series M*A*S*H. Then Jeff Brodrick joins us in our second hour as we look back at one of television's first comedy-variety series, The Colgate Comedy Hour. We talk about the many great comedians who hosted the show (including Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis), how it launched the careers of such future TV producers as Norman Lear and Danny Arnold, its influence on such shows as The Carol Burnett Show and Saturday Night Live, and a whole lot more.
