In the 1960s, Mitch Miller became a household name with his 1961–1966 NBC television show Sing Along with Mitch, a community-sing program featuring him and a male chorale (an extension of his highly successful series of Columbia record albums of the same name). During the second season of Sing Along with Mitch, Miller himself coined the catchphrase "all smiles." Sing Along with Mitch  was canceled in 1964 and repeats
aired briefly on NBC during the spring of 1966.
