Watch Ernie Kovacs
- 2 Seasons
Ahhh, the golden age of TV. The time of 3 channels and only a handful of TV shows. For years, multiple stations ran a daytime show named the Ernie Kovacs show. It also went by the name of Ernie Kovacs unlimited as well as The Ernie Kovacs rehearsal. Ernie Kovacs was a skit comedian who got his start doing stand up skit comedy and brought his show onto CBS for the sole purpose to cause people to laugh. The show can have as many as 15 skits in the thirty minutes it's on, and every one is more funny than the next. Each of the skits starred Ernie Kovacs and one of the other cast of merry makers on a musical back track. Ernie was known for his long cigar and it was often used as a prop in each of the skits. From two chefs conducting a duel with skillets to a badly played out magician to a man trying to cheat a parking ticket with a pasted time limit; the laughs are always guaranteed.
