DUMONT CAVALCADE OF STARS
Dumont at Saturday 12:00 AM (60 min.)
PreJune 4, 1949 Thru September 26, 1952

Cavalcade of Stars was one of the few successful series launched by the limited Dumont television network. With a larger budget than most of their series, it was a legitimate competitor in the big-time comedy/variety sweepstakes dominated by the likes of Milton Berle and Ed Sullivan.

The initial host was young comedian Jack Carter whose brash style was very much like that of Berle's. Once the show began to gather a following, Carter was made an offer he couldn't refuse; one from the bigger, more prestigious NBC.

Next up was comedian Jerry Lester, another brash comic whose tenure as host lasted a mere four months.

Still in need of a new host, and not wanting to lose a much-needed hit, Dumont offered a six-week audition contract to a relatively unknown nightclub comic named Jackie Gleason. During Gleason's tenure, Calvacade reached new heights in popularity as the comedian began to assemble the cast of characters he would use for the rest of his career: Reginald Van Gleason III, Charlie Bratton, etc.

Gleason left for his CBS debut with the splashy variety show that would make him famous for in September of 1952. By this time, Dumont had begun its descent to oblivion and couldn't possibly offer Gleason a deal as sweet as that from CBS.

Trying to follow an act like Jackie Gleason would be tough for any performer, especially on Dumont and on a tight budget. The unenviable task fell to another young comic, Larry Storch, who was chosen as his replacement. Cavalcade of Stars and Storch remained on the air just a few months more.
