Civilized Entertainment

Sally and I do not watch much television together. She is a tv buff, and I am more of a reader/Internet junkie. But almost every evening we watch, together, a television show we record off of the Game Show Network at some unholy hour of the morning. Like all game shows, it is total fluff. But "What's My Line' was civilized fluff. Nothing off-colour is said, the people on it, especially the panel, are pleasant, courteous and kind. After the first couple of seasons, the panel would dress up for the show, wearing evening clothes. And for all of that, it is fun.

Here is a taste of what I was discussing above. Steve Allen has just been married to Jayne Meadows. And guess who is the celebrity mystery guest?
