1969: Dick Cavett Debuts in Primetime
May 26, 2020  | By TV WW  | 1 comment
 
On this day in 1969, talk show host Dick Cavett made the leap to primetime.

Cavett's daytime talker, originally called This Morning, made its debut on March 4, 1968, and ran through January 24, 1969. Cavett returned to the network that May with a series of prime-time Dick Cavett Show specials, and then, on December 29, made the leap to a late-night spot opposite NBC's Tonight Show.

Still the best late night show for the variety of guests,yes Johnny is Forever but Dick had Kate Hepburn and John and Yoko and so many others in a very charged period of the late 60s into the 70s and then did even more good with a shorter PBS interview broadcast,later.
