The Eddie Fisher Show was an American musical comedy/variety television series starring Eddie Fisher and his then wife Debbie Reynolds. Other series regulars included George Gobel, Gisele MacKenzie and Mary Tyler Moore. The series alternated on Tuesday nights with The George Gobel Show with episodes running from October 1, 1957–March 17, 1959 on NBC.
Singer and entertainer Eddie Fisher had just concluded a four-year run on NBC with a 15-minute variety and musical comedy series Coke Time with Eddie Fisher in 1957. As a continuation of the series, NBC premiered The Eddie Fisher Show on October 1, 1957. The show alternated on Tuesday nights with The George Gobel Show airing from 8:00-9:00 pm for its entire run.
Fisher was married to actress Debbie Reynolds. The two divorced in 1959 and Fisher went on to marry Elizabeth Taylor. Fisher and Reynolds' divorce was very much publicized and after several months of scandals and unflattering publicity for Fisher, NBC decided to cancel the show with its last episode airing on March 27, 1959.
The series aired on Tuesdays from 8:30-9:00 pm for its entire run alternating weekly with The George Gobel Show.
