On July 3rd, the Times would report the actual ratings:

N.B.C.-TV’s Steve Allen toppled C.B.S.-TV’s Ed Sullivan in the hotly contested 8 to 9 P. M. time period last Sunday. Mr. Allen, who featured Elvis Presley, singer, scored a Trendex rating of 20.2 as against Mr. Sullivan’s 14.8. The former attracted 55.3 per cent of the viewing audience and the latter drew 39.7 per cent. It was N.B.C.’s best showing since May 30, 1954. During the 1955-1956 season, N.B.C. surpassed Mr. Sullivan only three times.10

The show managed to beat out Sullivan’s in spite of the number of high profile guests that appeared that night which included John Huston, Jose Ferrer, Orson Welles, Lauren Bacall, Edward G. Robinson, Vincent Price, Burl Ives and even Gregory Peck reenacting scenes from his upcoming film “Moby Dick.”

The King earned $5,000 for the performance and headed for the studio the next day to record the song for a single release.

Following the Steve Allen show – Elvis returned to the Warwick Hotel where he appeared on the only national talk show interview of his life – Hy Gardner Calling.

Steve Allen would maintain that Elvis was in on the joke being made of him, and Elvis never got over it – even referring to it in 1969 Vegas concert return. That North vs South divide of America.
