The Dean Martin Variety Show had everything -- sensational song and dance, hilarious comedy, and a star like no other. The NBC variety show was tops in the ratings for years. Its extremely likeable host gave the show a unique touch, because Dean didn't rehearse -- but that made it all the more fun for viewers. His endearing charm through little mistakes and flubs only enhanced the easygoing flair he had for entertaining his audience. He was a buddy to all the guys and a darling to the ladies. Today, he's cool to all ages.
