The Steve Allen Show




The Steve Allen Show
Winner 1958 | NBC-TV

Television Entertainment With Humor: In a television year when genuine humor and frank experiments have been so conspicuously lacking, The Steve Allen Show has manfully bucked the trend. Allen and his talented associates obviously are willing to try anything on their show, and the percentage of clean hits has been amazingly high. In recognition, the Peabody Award for television entertainment with humor is presented to The Steve Allen Show. *Allen’s prime-time series, spun off from his Tonight show, is fondly remembered for recurring charcters played by Don Knotts, Tom Poston and Louis Nye, but popular singers of the day, notably Tony Bennett, appeared almost as often.
