For nearly 20 years, The Mike Douglas Show was a hugely successful talk show that brought entertainers and other celebrities -- even Tiger Woods and the Muppets -- into American homes during daytime hours. The program went into syndication in 1963 and was a staple on American television until 1981. Douglas was a former big-band singer turned TV host whose 7 million viewers tuned in to see the celebrity guests that would be on the popular show on a daily basis. At the height of its popularity, in the late 1960s, it was one of the most watched shows on television.
