The N B C Follies (variety)

    (NBC Primetime, 1973)

    [For one season, NBC tried this old-fashioned variety show format 
     without a regular host; it resembled a series of vaudeville skits 
     and musical performances; the regulars who appeared in all the shows 
     were Sammy Davis, Jr. and Mickey Rooney; but even their star power
     wasn't enough to keep it going in the 1970s past one season in this 
     unusual forum]
