Elvis arrived at Penn Station in New York at 6:15 a.m. He slept during the day at the Warwick Hotel. That night , Elvis made his only appearance on "The Steve Allen Show", broadcast from the Hudson Theatre on NBC-TV from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. (EDT). He sang 'I Want You, I Need You, I Love You' (backed by The Jordanaires) and 'Hound Dog' (to a bassett hound named Sherlock), and he performed in his only comedy skit, "Range Roundup," with Allen, Andy Griffith, and Imogene Coca. Elvis was paid $ 5.000 for his appearance. This was Allen's second show of the season. He started in June to get the jump on Sullivan.
