Storyline

Johnny Carson fills in for Tom Poston and joins panelists Kitty Carlisle, Don Ameche, and Betty White. First up, three gentlemen who claim to be an authority on American pioneer life, Kitty Carlisle is the sole panelist to identify the correct contestant - however, the names of the impostors are Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone, respectively. Next up, three women, one of whom is a professional astronomer, employed by The US. Naval Observatory, Betty White is the only panelist to identify the woman. Finally, the panel is asked to identify the world champion jai alai player. Don Ameche, alone, identifies the gentleman. Bud Collyer thanks Johnny Carson for substituting for Tom Poston.
