For a long time, he had logged more hours on American TV than anybody.  With Jack Paar, Today Show , Kukla, Fran and Ollie,  Concentration, 20/20, etc., et al.

But IF you had known who he was, you would have thought he was gone.

NOBODY who knew who he was thought he was alive.

NOBODY.

I feel totally safe in saying that.

Does anyone remember a Downs-hosted show -- I think it went on right after Today in the early '60s -- called Hi, Mom?

Am I fantasizing this?  As a sort of representative of all that was odious in '50s/early '60s American pop culture?

Unless, again, this is some weird acid flashback on my part.

But I REALLY seem to remember it.
