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 --CygnusTMtalk

The Red Skelton Show was an award winning variety show that aired for twenty seasons. It featured Red Skelton, a radio host who made the successful transition to television. The show would start off with a monologue and then move into sketches featuring Skelton as a variety of characters. The show did not rely on guest appearances, although it had them, also. Johnny Carson got his start as a writer on the show.
