: Interesting post on another bulletin board of the top 10 shows of each year:
: Interesting that Jack shows up in the top 10 with the first Jell-O year -- and stays.
it's been said that he was in the Top-10 every season from the "Jell-O Program" 1934-1942 and he never left the Top-10. The "I Can't Stand Jack Benny Because" contest i had heard was invented to boost the ratings, which weren't too terrible in hind-sight but for better or worse, everyone who's popular always worries about the slightest drop or two in a rating total or a poll. it's been said that it's easy to reach the top...but it's hard STAYING on top...but Jack did!
