I couldn’t find a general Ed Sullivan post, but feel free to move if there is one.

I just found out about this clip for “Two of Us” played in 1970:

Nah, I can’t find one either. That’s surprising. It’s safe :)

A new bootleg release of the Ed Sullivan shows, ‘The Ultimate Ed Sullivan DVD Collection’, is out with previously unseen material and an upgrade in quality for the shows. Wogblog has a review of the dvd.

Published by the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin on Tuesday 11 February 1964:

As I See It — Sullivan Wasted Time with Beatles
by Paul Jones

If Ed Sullivan can find no better use for the time allotted him on Sunday night than to devote it to such exhibitions as he presented last Sunday I suggest that CBS-TV find something else to put in this hour of prime time.

Why Sullivan found it necessary to aid in the phony promotion of four Rock ‘N’ Roll exponents, all of whom resemble Moe of the Three Stooges, is beyond comprehension. And why he felt it necessary to “load” the theater with screaming teen-age girls when he normally restricts his audience to grownups, is also a mystery.

It was obvious to those who saw the Beatles, four young fellows from Great Britain, that they have not attained their present notoriety on the basis of their musical talents, for the sounds emanating from their mouths were anything but melodic.

Shorn of their mop-like hair-dos, they would look and sound like many other inferior Rock ‘N’ Roll groups which are still attempting to keep alive the fad which died when Elvis Presley entered the armed forces.

There is nothing attractive about the looks or the sounds of the Beatles.

There is no reason why Sullivan should take part in the absurd campaign to make this group appear to be important.

But then Sullivan’s program has been on the skids for several weeks. I have noticed a general deterioration in the type entertainment [sic] presented in at least three of the last four shows.

In catering to the screaming teen-agers who find this group exciting, Sullivan has shown his contempt for the vast millions who used to find his program diverting.

While not among the suspects for Dylan’s Mr. Jones, he could’ve been. Certainly someone who didn’t like that the times they were a-changin’.

Though he was obviously right about the Sullivan show going downhill, with the episode he was reviewing having the largest audience for a US television show for decades, and Ed only managing to keep the show on air for another seven years. a-hard-days-night-george-10

The question also strikes me about whether John ever saw this column, as Jones’ comment about “the fad which died when Elvis Presley entered the armed forces”, has some similarities to his “When Elvis died, people were harassing me in Tokyo for a comment. Well I’ll give it you now — he died when he went into the Army. That’s when they killed him. That’s when they castrated him. The rest of it was just a living death”.

All this time I thought the Lennon quote was “Rock & Roll died when Elvis joined the Army.”

John said a few variations on those words a few times over the years, didn’t he? It’s not his own unique sentiments, anyways…too bad William Mann hadn’t published a rebuttal.

75 Most Impactful Television Moments as ranked by the Television Academy (the ones who do the Emmy Awards) 

1. Neil Armstrong proclaims “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

2. Live coverage of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001

3. The Beatles performance on the Ed Sullivan Show (I assume they are talking about the first one.)

@Into the Sky with Diamonds, I think you’ll be happy with 2 of the top three!

 

How many of the 75 do you all remember/know about? https://www.emmys.com/75-tv-moments

I was recently listening intently to “This Boy “, also watched a tutorial by Mike Pachelli on the song — then I watched the Ed Sullivan performance of the song by The Beatles and I noticed a discrepancy:  neither John nor George are moving their hands in a way that matches the periodic moments of fast strum. I kept telling myself maybe that’s because it looks different when you’re a spectator.  Then a friend told me he suspects they were lip-synching the song on Sullivan.  Also when Pachelli strums those parts, I can see his hand moving in a way that John’s and George’s hands are NOT doing.

@Ahhh Girl

Beatles and Space in the top 3 – absolutely!

 

I would also add Walter Cronkite announcing JFK’s assassination.

#4 on the list is a scene from a tv show I’ve never heard of. Meanwhile, the moment that gave way for The Civil Rights Act and The Voting Rights Act being passed is #5, behind that tv show and behind a pop group playing on tv in America for the first time. 

Then they put the release of the Rodney King beating not only below the release of the video of George Floyd’s death, but also below Will Smith slapping Chris Rock in the face. What impact did that have?

Oh, oops, I didn’t look closely enough at Rube’s list. I thought she kept the numbering from the original list.

Would have been cool though is that was the case. Maybe my subconscious was typing at the time.
