Nixon Trivia Question for Script Giveaway

If you’re on my subscribers list and are among the first 5 people to answer the following correctly, I’ll email you a copy of the Frost/Nixon script, written by Peter Morgan and adapted from his same-titled play. The movie opens in limited release this Friday, December 5.

Here’s the question:

Richard Nixon’s first scandal happened in the 1950s when he was the V.P. candidate on Ike’s ticket. He was accused of being secretly funded by a group of California businessmen. To address these charges, Nixon went on live TV to make his famous “Checkers” speech, which was scheduled after what popular show?

    The popular show was The Milton Berle show, which was one of the top rated at that time for many months.

    Though the speech was broadcast to a combined TV and radio audience that included about 64 NBC television stations,194 CBS radio stations, and the 560 stations in the Mutual Broadcasting network, it was scheduled to follow the very popular “Milton Berle Show” which practically everyone watched.

    It’s been a few years but I seem to remember it was the Milton Berle Show.
