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. US TV critic John Crosby panned Elvis’ performance, calling him an ‘unspeakable, untalented and vulgar young entertainer.’

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.

Elvis Presley May Keep Tonsils Frankfurt, Germany -(UPD)-Elvis Presley, hospitalized by tonsillitis, will not have to undergo an operation on the golden throat which has made him a rich man, an Army spokesman said today. The loose-hipped rock n roll singer was admitted to the 97th General Hospital here Wednesday after running a 102-degree fever. 1 Army physicians said that Presley has an infection of the throat in addition to inflamed tonsils; The initial examinations indicated his case was not serious. “He is undergoing treatment for both ailments,” said a spokesman for the 3rd Armored Division in which Presley serves. “The doctors have decided that an operation is not necessary.” . He added, however, that if Presley does not react favorably to the treatment, the question of removing his tonsils will have to be reconsidered.

Doris Day released the single “Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera).” The song was introduced in the Alfred Hitchcock film, “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” starring Day and James Stewart, which had premiered in New York City five days earlier.

Elvis arrived in Topeka by plane where he got off the plane wearing nothing above the waist but a loose fitting, 2 button, shantung suit coat.

Elvis performed at the Municipal Auditorium, Topeka. Kansas, where an estimated 2,500 fans stormed the stage.

That teenage trauma Elvis Presley had about 2,500 Topeka misses envying a microphone Monday night in Municipal Auditorium

The rock-and-roll recording sensation strode onto the stage like a musical Paul Bunyan with a guitar for an axe.
And for 20 minutes, he made love to the “mike,” completely felling most of his already-sold audience.
Anticipating demonstrations similar to those in other cities, Topeka police took no chance.
Several stood at stage-side through Presley’s short performance which followed a variety show.
But the guards were not needed. The stage was too high and Presley was out of the building by a secret exit and into the Hotel Kansan before the youths caught on.

It was a little hard to be sure above the continuing squeals and clapping—but the sensuous 21-year·old from Memphis apparently sang some of the songs which have pushed him to the top of the Hit Parade.
Though he didn‘t give the titles, it was obvious the young fans had heard the loud tunes before.
Heartbreak Hotel,” “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Money Honey,” and “Hound Dog” were among them.
With movements which would put a burlesque queen to shame, Elvis squirms out his songs. He keeps himself so breathless from the physical contortions that the pleasant timbre of his lower baritone notes can seldom be detected.

Dressed in his famed red coat and black shirt and pants, Elvis has the effect of an earlier Frank Sinatra, with a more robust appeal.
His songs not only transform his fans, but that walk on stage apparently brings a metamorphosis in him.
Off stage. despite some published reports, Elvis is a polite young man, who prefixes nearly every sentence with “Yes, mam,” or “Thank you, mam.”
With a hair cut and a shave for his sideburns. he would not turn many heads on Kansas Avenue. His light brown hair tops very blue eyes and full lips.

He is amazed by it all. It wasn’t long ago that he walked into a public recording studio to cut a record “just to hear myself sing.”
The money ( reported $7.500 a week), which permits him to own several Cadillacs and maintain a new home for his parents, is easy to take, he admits.
Though he soon will make a movie, Elvis said he has “got what I want. But I’d just like to keep giving the people something that they want to hear.”
Whether rock-and-roll is here to stay he doesn’t know.”
He says he will “start worrying when the, girls don‘t mob me.”
However, he no longer exposes himself unnecessarily.
Police have had to guard him at all his recent Western and Midwest stops.
“There is no sense getting your clothes torn off,” he said.
“Several times they got everything but my pants and I had quite a fight for those.”
His garb on arrival at Municipal Airport might explain some of this.
The singer had on nothing above the waist but a loose-fitting, two button shantung suit coat which exposed considerable bare chest.
His style was “just an accident,” he says. But he claims to “admire anybody in any profession that is good at it.”
“A great singer, I could listen to all night. I don’t care whether it is opera or jazz.”
He is quick to refute many egotistical statements attributed to him in magazines and newspapers. ‘
The draft may catch him soon, but in the meantime he claims no matrimonial intentions.
Of the Time Magazine remark attributed to him in this connection-“Why buy a cow when you can get milk through a fence?”—he says, “I never said that.

Variety’s Reviews of Elvis Presley Records in the Fifties

Elvis Presley: “I Want You, I Need You, I Love You”-“My Baby left Me” (RCA Victor). The current phenom of the music biz, Elvis Presley probably could have a hit if his name were on a blank disk. This coupling is sure of a big ride even though the material is not up to the level of his “Heartbreak Hotel” smash. “I Want You” is a slow ballad with a strong beat and Presley belts it with his identifying vocalisthenics. Flip, in a traditional blues vein, also gets an energetic workout.
