Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 8, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today By Jay Sharbutt. The Award Awards Show NEW YORK ob- scure television producer, Everett Scrimshaw, of Bum- f u d g e o n Fla., announced Monday the creation of a new awards program to honor the best awards shows on TV this year. "It's called the first annual 'Award Awards' he said. "It covers all categories the Oscars, the Emmys, the Tonys, the Grammys and whatever else comes up." Scrimshaw, who recently got his own award as the out- standing escapee of the Bum- fudgeon Home for the Weird, was asked how he came upon the unique idea of the Award Awards. "I was he said. And, he added, "it struck me, as did my wife, that even with all these awards shows on TV, nobody's ever really paid tribute to the people who make them what they are." Scrimshaw declined to say with whom he's negotiating for the TV rights to the Award Awards show. He said it'll be broadcast from the new Bum- fudgeon Civic Center right after the Halloween sock hop. "It'll be a black-tie he emphasized. "There's enor- mous interest in it. Snidely Foon, the haberdasher here, already's having a run on boiled dickies." Scrimshaw made public a few awards categories he's planned. They are: Most Dramatic Gasp When Name Is Announced. Best Dash up the Aisle. Best-Looking Sioux Princess to Decline Award for Absen- tee. Most Years Spent Awaiting Award in Same Rented Tux- edo. Arthur B. Summerfield Trophy for Best Envelope- Handling. Best Dramatic Reading of Ad Lib on Cue Card. Most Humble Producer. Best Tight Close-Up on Face given TV cameraman with fastest reaction when streaker interrupts ceremonies. Back in real world, meanwhile, CBS has canceled the top-rated "Sonny and Cher" program, which pre- miered as a summer replace- ment in August 1971 and joined the regulars in De- cember that year. The cancellation is sad news, but industry observers noted the popular show was in trouble last February when its stars said they were cancel- ing their marriage. Fred Silverman, CBS1 pro- gramming chief, wouldn't say if the marital rift was the reason the show was axed. "It's a very, very complicated he said, declining to elaborate further. He said a replacement pro- gram would be announced later this month when CBS makes public its fall program lineup. A reminder for baseball fans: NBC is televising to- night's Atlanta-Los Angeles game live, preceded by a half- hour program about the high- lights in the career of home run king Hank Aaron. NBC says baseball authori- ties have lifted the television blackout of the game for Los Angeles, but not Atlanta, where the game will be held.
