This Is Show Business (panel/variety, hosted by Clifton Fadiman)

    [original title: "This Is Broadway"]

    (CBS Primetime, 1949 - 1954;
     NBC Primetime, 1956)

    [In the earliest days of television it was an experimental
     medium where various formats were tried out; this was an
     odd pretext for a variety show, where a host chatted with
     guest celebrities who performed an act, and then they
     discussed problems with a celebrity panel for advice; the
     most notable panelists were George S. Kaufman, Abe Burrows,
     Sam Levenson and Walter Slezak]
