“The Honeymooners” still watched by loyal audiences six decades after the sitcom first appeared as a skit back in 1952. Starting off on Dumont Television’s Cavalcade of Stars it gained huge popularity when CBS enticed Jackie Gleason to expand it into what became. Along with “I Love Lucy” one of the most watched television shows of all time.
Every Saturday night until 1956, Gleason, Audrey Meadows, Art Carney and Joyce Randolph made America howl with laughter. The belly laughs continue now every weekend on WPIX-TV at 11 p.m.
Joyce Randolph is the only surviving member of the “original” quartet, and she speaks out at the age of 89 in a conversation with Kaity Tong.
