It was on this show that Moore began his friendships with comedian Henry Morgan and game show host and panelist Bill Cullen with whom he also had a long working relationship. He was buried at Forest Hill Cemetery in Northeast Harbor Maine. The new show was canceled mid-season because of low ratings against NBC's highly rated western Bonanza.
After dropping out of high school Moore found success as a radio host and then moved on to the television industry. He spent the last years of his life in South Carolina and at his summer home in Maine.
