Benny's first program drives the studio audience wild - & straight into the streets when he unholsters his violin to mangle "Love in Bloom," his theme. Jack knows he's off to a bad start on TV when one of the show's cracked technicians interrupts Jack's intro to wave to an aunt. Rochester sings "My Blue Heaven" while cleaning Jack's house, and Dinah Shore auditions "I'm Yours" for Jack. Jack joins her for "I Oughta Know More About You." The Sportsmen Quartet perform "There's No Business Like Show Business," a theme song from Jack's radio program. Jack's well-wishers who drop by include Ken Murray and Mr. Kitzel.
First TV performance of Mary Livingston.
Mel Blanc's first TV performance.
