############## season 5 1953-54 ##############
############### (final season) ###############
NBC Saturdays 9:00-10:30pm Eastern (90 min) (ends 5Jun54) (3 out of every 4 weeks)
(Every 4th week "All-Star Revue")

5.01 [131] Your Show of Shows [Season 5 Premiere]
12Sep1953 NBC Sat
Guests
Coloratura soprano Lily Pons
singer Nat "King" Cole
and famous ballerina, making her TV debut Toumanova.
Also new talent feature with singer Joan Walker.

*Note: The old fixed format of the show has been discarded and in its place the new look will feature a fluid format
which can be varied or completely changed from week to week. Under the programming, fresh, new talent will be featured
on various telecasts. On the premiere show Producer-director Max Liebman will introduce a brilliant young singer,
Joan Walker, who has been appearing in concerts in this country since her arrival from her native Ireland a year ago.
Another important change will be inaugurated this season when "Your Show of Shows" is presented three weeks out of
every four instead of every week. The network's "All Star Revue" will occupy he Saturday night time period every fourth week.
In addition, the Sid Caesar-Imogene Coca series will originate from NBC's spacious Center Theater, where its tremendous
stage and facilities will allow for more ambitious production numbers and special effects.

*Note: News item:
Reaction to "Your Show of Shows" first of the season attempt last Saturday has been far from favorable. The major complaint
is that the old regulars are being missed. They were as much the stars of the series as Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca,
so it is being realized now that action has been taken to cure the show of "repetition". Last week's opener was a pretty
slow beginning of the series - it lacked the spark and vitality of past productions.
