Uptown Jubilee was a short-lived American all-black variety show on CBS Television from September 13 to October 20, 1949. The show aired live on Tuesday nights from 8pm to 9pm ET during September, and on Thursdays from 8:30pm to 9pm ET during October.

The program aired three times as an hour-long show, each with a different title: premiering as Uptown Jubilee, changing to Harlem Jubilee, and finally Sugar Hill Times, the title it also used during the two half-hour telecasts on October 6 and 20.[1]

The show was hosted by Willie Bryant; performers included Maxine Sullivan, Timmie "Oh Yeah" Rogers, Harry Belafonte, The Jubileers, and Don Redman and His Orchestra.[2]
