|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk|
The Dick Cavett Show (1968)
| This article about a program needs to be expanded with more information.|
Please help out by editing it.
The Dick Cavett Show is a talk show hosted by Dick Cavett which switched networks, times and running lengths several times over its 14-year run. It began as an ABC daytime show (called This Morning) in 1968, then switched to primetime for one season, then finally ended up in late night. Although Cavett did a monologue, had sketches and interviewed guests, with his dry wit and guests from the academic world, he was seen as a cerebral alternative to the then-king of late night, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson. In 1975, ABC cancelled the series, and it was briefly picked up by CBS for primetime. At last, it moved to PBS and ran for another five seasons.
