Premise

Judy Garland's show, like the star herself, had a troubled history, and it suffered format changes and backstage turmoil, none of which kept it from copping several Emmy nominations. Notable changes involved a switch in executive producers from George Schlatter to Norman Jewison. Garland, though, was in great voice, and there were wonderful guest shots by her daughter Liza Minnelli, Mickey Rooney, Barbra Streisand, Ethel Merman, Danny Kaye and Ray Bolger (the scarecrow from `The Wizard of Oz').
