About

From Wikipedia:

The Hank McCune Show was an American television situation comedy. Filmed without a studio audience, it was notable for being the first program to incorporate a laugh track.

The series began as a local Los Angeles program in 1949. NBC placed it on its national primetime schedule at the start of the 1950-51 season. It debuted at 7:00pm Eastern Time on September 9 and was cancelled three months later.

The premise foreshadowed that of The Larry Sanders Show in that it contained a show within a show. McCune portrayed a television variety show host named after himself, and each week the character managed to blunder his way into a variety of comic predicaments.

The supporting cast included Larry Keating, Charles Maxwell, Frank Nelson, and Florence Bates.
