> Description 
Old trouper Ken Murray, who had begun his career in vaudeville in the teens and who appeared on teh first commercial program on television, in 1930, hosted his own comedy-variety series on CBS from 1950-1953. Murray was also a producer of some note, and his show featured top-name guest stars and elaborate sets - including his trademark Hollywood and Vine backdrop. He had a large cast of regular singers and dnacers, including cowgirl Laurie "Ah love the wide open spaces" Anders and a bevy of long-stemmed "Glamourlovelies.". Ken bridged the various acts with informal chatter and humor. The series began as an alternate-week entry, switched to weekly in the fall of 1950, and then back to alternate weeks in 1953. During the 1953 run it alternated with The Alan Young Show under the umbrella title Time To Smile.
