The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour was a variety show based on the married
couple of pop-singer Cher and her husband, Sonny Bono. The show ran on
CBS when it premiered on August 1, 1971. It was canceled May 29, 1974,
due to the couple’s divorce, though the duo would reunite in 1976 for the
identically-formatted The Sonny & Cher Show (a title sporadically used
during the run of the Comedy Hour), which ran until 1977. The show, which
consisted of comedy skits mixed in with musical numbers, was a Top 20 hit
in the ratings for its entire run.
