With great scenes from the shows and interviews with the stars who brought the lines to life, this program will celebrate the history and humor of catch phrases.

"TV's 50 Funniest Phrases" is produced by Brad Lachman Productions in association with The Paley Center for Media. Brad Lachman serves as executive producer and director, while Pat Mitchell, Diane Lewis and John Wolters are also executive producers. The special is produced by Garry Bormet.
