The Best of Broadway is a 60-minute live television anthology series that aired on CBS Television on Wednesdays at 10pm ET from September 15, 1954 to May 4, 1955 for a total of nine episodes. Each show was broadcast live in color from New York City, was an adaptation of a famous Broadway play, and included ads for Westinghouse featuring Betty Furness.[1]

This series ran every fourth week, with Pabst Blue Ribbon Bouts being aired the other three weeks.[2] After this series, and Ford Star Jubilee (1955-56), CBS largely refrained from color broadcasting until the mid-60's.[3]
