Not since Bishop Fulton Sheen and his Life Is Worth Living, airing opposite Milton Berle in the '50s, has there been a man of the cloth whose ecumenical excellence could pulverize ratings from the proscenium/pulpit.
With his concern for Elaine's welfare and effort to put her at ease ("Can I offer you some kasha varnishkes?") after word gets out -- actually the rebbe is the one who leaked it -- that she was jealous of George getting married, it's easy to see how the affable if ineffectual chatterbox rebbe may just be the one to slip into those 11:35 p.m. slippers that seem suddenly too outsized for others.
Remember how Carson's comments could cause headlines the next day, his Tonight Show quips and cracks wickedly funny water-cooler fodder?
Just give Glickman a golf putter and watch him become the nation's new yenta.
H-e-r-e's -- Rebbe!
