Dinah Shore, one of the few women to achieve major success as a variety-series host on TV, starred in her own full-hour musical variety show on NBC for seven seasons, following a successful run with the much simpler and shorter Dinah Shore Show, which was only 15 minutes long. A full hour enabled Dinah to play host to top-name guest stars, include skits and large production numbers, and expand on her own varied talents. Besides her warm and friendly style, her trademarks on this series were the theme song “See the U.S.A. in your Chevrolet” and the resounding kiss she gave the audience at the end of each show.
When The Dinah Shore Chevy Show premiered in 1956 it was as a series of monthly specials. The following fall it moved to Sunday night and became a weekly series. It vacated the Sunday time slot to Bonanza in 1961, moved to Friday with the new title The Dinah Shore Show, and continued on a rotating basis with assorted specials for two more seasons.
In the beginning, her show was only 15-minutes long, typical of block-formatted radio series and early television; Then in 1956 she was featured in a number of monthly specials sponsored by the Chevrolet division of General Motors; A year later, in 1957, her 15-minute series ended and Chevrolet began sponsoring her in a weekly expanded one-hour format, and their name was added to the title.
Dinah sang the Chevrolet jingle on the monthly specials and as her theme song when the weekly show began being sponsored by Chevrolet; her recording was also used on radio and television spot commercials.
For the final (sixth) season it was called The Dinah Shore Show.
Later she hosted two Daytime talk shows – Dinah's Place (NBC, 1970 - 1974) and Dinah! (Syndicated, 1970 - 1980)
