When The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, aka The Burns and
Allen Show
, began on CBS television Thursday October 12, 1950, it
was an immediate success. The show was originally live before a studio
audience.  Burns realized it would be more efficient to do the series on
film (beginning in the fall of 1952); the half-hour episodes could then
be syndicated. With 291 episodes, the show had a long network run
to September 22, 1958 and continued in syndicated reruns for years.
