This week in TV Guide: Monday, February 5, 1968




It's the last primetime before the start of the Olympics, but I'm drawn to KTCA's Folio at 9:30 p.m. It's a program on theater, hosted by Warren Frost, who taught at the University of Minnesota and served as artistic director of the Chimera Theater in St. Paul. You might recognize him either from Slaughterhouse Five (which was filmed in the Minneapolis), or from his appearances in Twin Peaks. That, incidentally, was co-created by his son, Mark Frost; Warren was also the father of the actress Lindsay Frost and the writer Scott Frost. One of the more distinguished alums of the Twin Cities.

  1. Warren Frost was probably seen by the most people as Mr. Ross, George Costanza's fiancee's father on SEINFELD. He appeared in the show's finale, which is high on the list of most-watched shows of all time.

    1. Actually, the role that most people saw Warren Frost in was as Andy Griffith's daffy next-door neighbor in the last few seasons of Matlock.
      (And thanks to MeTV, they'll keep seeing him for years to come ...)

    2. Have to admit, I rarely watched Matlock, and the episodes I did see must have been before the advent of the daffy next-door neighbor. Not a clue to it.

    3. I should add to that, however, that although I saw a few episodes of Matlock, I have to this day never seen a single episode of Seinfeld. Not one. No idea if I've missed anything.

  2. Wow, never realized The Monkees was Laugh-In's lead-in (ha ha). And tonight's episode is a classic, too - "The Devil and Peter Tork".
