Hey laaaaaaaaady…did you know that Jerry Lewis had a late night talk show? In 1984, he produced a syndicated, old-time-showbizzy type thing (his sidekick was Charlie Callas; guests were people like Mel Torme and Frank Sinatra) to compete with Johnny Carson. It didn’t catch on. At all. The show was cancelled after five weeks. I like Jerry Lewis, but a little goes a long way. (And Carson already had the same audience that would like this kind of thing.) IMDB doesn’t even list this on Lewis’s CV.
