The series began as a local Los Angeles program in 1949. NBC placed it on its national primetime schedule at the start of the 1950-51 season. It debuted at 7:00pm Eastern Time on September 9 and was cancelled three months later.
The premise foreshadowed that of The Larry Sanders Show in that it contained a show within a show. McCune portrayed a television variety show host named after himself, and each week the character managed to blunder his way into a variety of comic predicaments.
