And in other news, from the November 5, 1982 New York Times...


"The original ''Twilight Theater,'' broadcast last February, starred Steve Martin. This one, a project of Mr. Martin's 40 Share Productions, features the comedian in a few sketches, but the host for the evening is Leslie Nielsen, done up in black tie and attended by a black butler, played by Mr. T from the movie ''Rocky III.''

The format offers a series of sketches and vignettes surrounded by a not overpersuasive laugh track. The venture conveys the distinct impression that the material must have sounded a lot funnier on paper. One segment, for instance, opens with pictures of the sumptuous California homes owned by Mr. Martin's manager, agent and accountant. This is followed by a shot of Mr. Martin living in a decidedly modest mobile home, albeit staffed with chauffeur and chef. The comedian offers a tour of the residence in typically manic fashion.

Or there is Don Novello as Father Guido Sarducci hawking confessional opportunities in a nightclub for the bargain rate of only 99 cents. ''Give me your sign,'' he asks prospective customers. Or there is the doddering star on a life-support system being told to get ready to perform and suddenly turning into the eternally boyish Dick Clark.

By far the most curious routine on the show is a debate over national defense between G. Gordon Liddy, of Watergate notoriety, and a young woman named Moon Unit Zappa. He begins seriously enough but soon runs into her mod jargon - ''totally cracking, so gross!'' - and winds up converted, insisting that he is ''like freaking out, totally!'' The strange career of Mr. Liddy continues to amaze, though hardly to delight. Other guest stars in this odd collection include Ron Leibman, Michael York, Anson Williams, Fred Willard, Martin Mull and Bill Macy.
"


So I didn't just imagine this show! I knew it existed, had at least two episodes, and would show up at random times a few years apart late at night, but I'd no clue that it was an actual "thing". All I recalled of it was seeing Michael York advertise for folks to send in donations to Twilight Theater. For a donation of $1,000 or more, one could get a pin that said, "TWIT", showing your support.
