You're in the Picture

1961, TV Show

How sweet it wasn't: This notorious Jackie Gleason game show lasted just one week. It involved celebrity panelists putting their heads into cutouts in a painted scene, and then having to guess what the scene was by asking questions of host Gleason. It was such a fiasco that the next week's show consisted only of a rambling---and witty---apology by Gleason. For the rest of the season, he filled the time slot with a one-on-one talk show (`The Jackie Gleason Show').
