As the curtain closed on 1949, Jack Benny had his most lucrative year to date. CBS was now the number one network in the country, and both were poised for big things in the oncoming TV era. Benny's January 1950 rating would rise again, to 25.6. This brings our look at December of 1949 with Jack Benny to a close. Although we'll be moving on you shouldn't worry, Jack will still be around the periphery in January.
The Jack Benny Program starred Jack Benny and ran on either radio or TV for more than three decades, earning Emmys for more years than not. Jack played one role throughout- as a minimally talented violinist and penny pincher who was always the butt of jokes. His wife, Mary Livingston, was his constant companion on the shows as well as Rochester, his wise-cracking butler. Jacks actual skills with the violin were demonstrated a number of times with guest appearances with symphonies.
