During their last show, good friend Tommy Smothers was in the audience, and he asked the Everlys how one stays on television. To which Phillip replied that he was asking the wrong people, as this was their last show! It was a perfect ending to the audience's questions.

Unfortunately their TV show was not renewed, but I feel that the Everly Brothers showed a marvellous innate ability to communicate and endear themselves to a television audience. They should have been given more shows, as talent like theirs is almost impossible to come by.
THIS POSTING WAS SO HILARIOUS..I'M STILL GRINNING!

One can see their personality distinctions in the answers, but they are all witty!

(I'll come here often when I need a good laugh!! Thanks, Chris!)
