Admiral Broadway Revue, airing in 1949 simultaneously on NBC and the DuMont network , was an American variety program.
The program, the brainchild of Max Liebman and Sid Caesar, was a mix of vaudeville and Broadway-style performances, including comedy skits, acrobats and dancing and musical numbers.
Broadcast live, the program was one of the first of its kind, and was the first pairing of Sid Caesar and Imogene Coca, who would later go on to star in Your Show of Shows .
The program was sponsored by Admiral, television set manufacturer. The program was a huge hit, and is credited with making sales of television sets jump so drastically that Admiral could not keep up with production. It is reported that, rather than continue the program, Admiral cancelled it so that they could use the money they were spending on the program to boost production of television sets.
