The Mike Douglas Show....KYW TV 3 Philadelphia


The Mike Douglas Show was an American daytime television talk show that was hosted by Mike Douglas. Initially, it aired only in Cleveland during much of its first two years, followed by expansion to Philadelphia and nationwide. It went into syndication in 1963 and remained on television until 1981. It was distributed by Westinghouse Broadcasting, and for much of its run, originated from studios of two of the company's TV stations in Cleveland and Philadelphia where The Mike Douglas Show was broadcast from a small 140-seat basement studio located in the WRCV/KYW building at 1619 Walnut Street (See photo. This blog editor is at far right.) The Mike Douglas show was syndicated nationwide by Westinghouse Broadcasting and continued to be aired live until the following year when Zsa Zsa Gabor called Morey Amsterdam a "son of a bitch" for interrupting her joke during the April 29, 1966 program. After that, the program aired on a one-day tape delay basis, allowing for the editing out of any objectionable material.
