The show aired from 11 June 1968 to 3 September 1968. Each week a panel of judges would vote on that nights’ talent roster and select a winner of the evening. There was a new winner chosen every week for 10 weeks. The 11th and final show was expanded from the normal 30 minutes to an hour-long show. This final episode had all previous 10 week winners perform again with the winner getting $10,000 prize. The overall winner was “Sly & The Family Stone” who had they very first single on the charts titled “Dance To The Music” this year that eventually peak at #10 on the Billboard pop chart.
