Well, fast-forward about 45 years, and you have the 2010 Apple geek edition of the variety show on today's TUAW TV Live. We've got music (fortunately, Steve won't sing), art, science, nature, and even death-defying stunts of incredible stupidity! Steve is much more animated than the late, great Ed Sullivan (see at right), so you're sure to have a good time.
You can watch and join in on the live chat this afternoon at 5 PM EDT (2 PM PDT) here at TUAW.com. Just drop by a few minutes before the show goes live, and we'll have instructions on how you can join in on the fun.
