Review:
Madcap comics Bob and Ray give the show its funniest moments as they run a television station in a one-horse town.
Some of their juicy little programs, especially the one about the weather forecast, are really de-licious.
Eve Arden tells Perry she'd like to be herself, for a change, instead of the inevitable "Miss Brooks," and sings
"Drop That Name"'with Como. There's .also Tennessee Ernie Ford, who stops by during his visit to New York for a
bit of chatter and song
