If you're a fan of Jack's show, then you might want to give "The Phil Harris-Alice Faye Show" a try.
The series was sort of a spin-off of the Benny series, and there were even some cross-over appearances by cast members. (Alice subbed for Mary on Jack's show once or twice when Mary was ill and absent, Jack appeared on Phil and Alice's show as a guest, etc.).
While maybe not as well-written as Jack's show, Phil and Alice's series WAS a VERY funny show, and can usually be counted on for several hearty belly-laughs during the course of an episode.
Here's a tip: Try to find "Harris-Faye" episodes from 1952 or earlier. In 1953 the show changed writers and those later episodes aren't nearly as funny.
