The Phil Harris-Alice Faye, Show was a comedy variety show that evolved from another variety program known as The Fitch Bandwagon. It debuted on NBC on 1948, and featured real-life husband and wife Phil Harris, a singer-songwriter, and Alice Faye, a singer-actress. Other stars included in the show were Ann Whitfield and Jeanine Roose, who played as the couple's young daughters.
In the show, Phil was described as an egotistical bandleader. His wife, on the other hand, was an extremely popular star who gave up her Hollywood career to become a family woman. The series generally focused on Phil's relationship with the other characters in the show, his drinking habits, and his image of being a bandleader.
The show, which was an instant success, lasted for six years, with the last episode aired on 1954.
