The revue used a rotating method with its sponsors, going up to as many as three per program and changing often. The only one to remain on Saturday nights is tak ing a half-hour version of the Ted Mack Amateur Show. To anyone keeping tabs, the all- alar, seemed to have been slipping ail season. Its real high spots were the Jimmy Durante sections, with Martha Raye a close second. Addition of George Jessel to the list didn't help a lot, and he was not renewed by NBC. ABC is taking him over in the belief he will help build up its schedules. Tallulah Bankhead, also fairly new to the revue, had a mixed reception from the critics, particularly outside of New York.
