BULLDOG CBS cancels Smothers Brothers television show Associated Press NEW YORK - The Columbia Broadcasting System said yesterday it has canceled the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour television show next season, ending its running dispute with the two comedians regarding taste and censorship. In annuuncing cancellation of the show, Robert Wood, president of CBS-TV, said the Smothers Brothers consistently had failed to deliver tapes of the program to the network in time for review by network executives and local stations. A spokesman for the network said the Smothers Brothers Nov. 10 show would be rerun tomorrow. Under the contract, he said, the Smothers brothers are scheduled for two additional shows this season. The spokesman said tapes of the two shows would be considered on their merits before they are run. The network announcement added that it is "abundantly clear" that Tom and Dick Smothers are unwilling to accept the criteria of taste established by the network's program practices department. On several occasions parts of the Smothers Brothers show have been cut by the network, and a show scheduled for Jan. 5 was replaced with the tape of an earlier show. The objectionable material in the Jan. 5 show was apparently folk singer Joan Baez' dedication of a song to her husband, a draft resister serving a jail term. In a telegram to Tom Smothers yesterday Weed said the tape of tomorrow's show had not been received in time to be reviewed. "On the basis of our information about parts of that program," Weed added, "we believe that the program in its present form would not be acceptable." Weed said he understood the program included "at the very least. . .a monologue which in our opinion would be considered to be irreverent and offensive by a large segment of our audience and, therefore, unacceptable even if this were not the week of the Eisenhower funeral rites and even if Sunday were not Easter Sunday." CBS also released the texts of two earlier telegrams from Wood to Tom Smothers, insisting that the network was unwilling to "exempt" the Smothers program "from the program standards and procedures were apply to all other entertainment." Tom Smothers told reporters March 26 the show had considered leaving CBS, but then decided "to help force a new policy. . .by being on the air rather than off the air." In a telegram dated March 27, Wood told Tom Smothers, "You are not free to use the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour as a device to 'push for new standards.' If you cannot comply with our standards — whether or not you approve of them — the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour cannot appear on CBS."
