Milton Berle

The Texaco Star Theatre was one of the most popular shows in the history of
television. In the first year, Milton Berle was not the permanent emcee, but once
he replaced the rotation, the show soared to Number One in 1950-51. NBC TV
dominated Tuesday night, and Berle became, "Mr. Television". The basic format
of the show was modeled after a vaudeville variety hour, spotlighting Berle’s jokes,
sight gags, and costumes.
