The Jerry Lewis Show

In 1984, Metromedia attempted to challenge Johnny Carson with Thicke of the Night, a talk show hosted by Alan Thicke. The show died a relatively quick death. When faced with the prospect of broadcasting a test pattern, Metromedia decided to give the legendary Jerry Lewis a chance. With Charlie Callas as his sidekick, Jerry Lewis lasted a glorious five days before getting the axe.
