1971: The last original episode of "The Ed Sullivan Show" airs after 23 seasons. The show's final guests were Melanie, Joanna Simon, Danny Davis and the Nashville Brass, and Sandler and Young. The show actually remained on the air for more than two months more, with repeats scheduled through June 6, 1971, representing a run less than two weeks short of 23 years since its June 20, 1948, debut.
