Ethel and Albert (sitcom, starring Peg Lynch and Alan Bunce)

    (NBC Primetime, 1953 - 1954;
     CBS Primetime, 1955;
     ABC Primetime, 1955 - 1956)

    [this had been a long-running network radio series since 
     1944 starring Peg Lynch and Richard Widmark; on television
     it had first been tried as a segment of "The Kate Smith
     Show" in 1952; but despite the best efforts of three TV
     networks, it never caught on as a standalone TV series; 

     Another curiousity was the fact that the THEME of this
     series was also the signature THEME of another well-known
     couple which had another sitcom on radio and TV -- "The
     George Burns and Gracie Allen Show", which see.]

Theme: The Love Nest,
            from the George M. Cohen musical comedy production "Mary" [1920]
