The show includes the best in the tradition of variety programming: big band music, ethnic numbers, as well as popular tunes.

Throughout its history, its' wide reaching popularity permitted it to occupy a premium time slot in the network schedule. This advantage presented the opportunity for families to gather together to view and enjoy entertainment that is sufficiently diverse to appeal to all ages and interests.

The program served as a platform to launch the performing careers of many talented artists who went on to acquire a measure of fame. In addition, established performers often appeared on the show, a testimony to the consistent quality and integrity of the program over time. Viewers could expect to see familiar faces and see fresh talent every time the show aired.
