Did "Mad Men's" Phyllis Diller-Hosted Tonight Show Episode Exist? Here's Proof It Did (PHOTO)
After watching the premiere of Mad Men, I went through TV Guide's archives to find out whether -- and when -- that Phyllis Diller-hosted episode of the Tonight Show took place. And here it is, exactly during the time of year depicted in Mad Men's season 6 premiere: Friday, Dec. 22, 1967.
But what about the rest of the scenario depicted in the episode? Did a comedian come on and make light of war atrocities? And did it have any impact on a Koss Headphones campaign? For that, I dialed up Matt Weiner -- and he gave me the lowdown here.
