Thus you had Jimmy Durante, Bob Hope, Chuck Berry and Burt Reynolds popping up on The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour (which also featured and up and comic comic named Steve Martin – who was also a writer on the show).

Other cool guests on these shows included: Muhammed Ali, David Bowie, The Jackson 5, Elton John and many more.

Episodes of these classic series will air on getTV every Monday (8/7C) beginning September 12th. Follow the jump for a teaser trailer further details.
