For its consistent and successful presentation of a varied diet of the popular arts—varied in the true sense of variety, from dog acts to public figures, from singers to dancers, all put forth with verve and taste and a sense of the gaiety of pleasing the viewer—the George Foster Peabody Television Award for entertainment during 1956 goes to The Ed Sullivan Show.
