It was a special blend of music and comedy that included most of the biggest stars in the business - plus a host like no other. After its debut in 1965, Dean's show remained in the Top Ten for most of its nine-year existence. Although it had all the ingredients of many other variety shows of the era, it also had a star with unique abilities; he did the show with little or no rehearsals and made it a pleasure to watch. "Did you see what Dean did on his show last night?" Everybody loved Dean - his guests, his staff, and particularly his huge TV following. He was "cool" then and he still is.
