The Martha Raye Show (comedy variety)

     (NBC Primetime, 1955 - 1956)

     [Broadway musical star Martha Raye who had a loud voice
      reminiscent of a young Ethel Merman did skits with boxer
      Rocky Graziano in several previous guest appearances on
      shows like the "All Star Revue"; on her own show, there
      was an effort to make their skits into a regular feature
      alá "The Honeymooners", but the show didn't have the same
      staying power as the Jackie Gleason vehicle]
