> Description 
Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts (also known as Talent Scouts) was a television variety show which ran on CBS from 1948 until 1958. It starred Arthur Godfrey, who was also hosting Arthur Godfrey and His Friends at the same time.

The concept for the show was that Godfrey had several "talent scouts" who brought their discoveries onto the program to showcase their talents. The winner of each show was determined by a meter which judged the audience's applause.

Contestants on the show included Pat Boone, The Chordettes, Carmel Quinn, and The McGuire Sisters, all of whom went on to perform on Arthur Godfrey and His Friends. Other contestants included Vic Damone, Eddie Fisher, Jonathan Winters, Don Knotts, Rosemary Clooney, Tony Bennett, Connie Francis, Steve Lawrence, Al Martino, Lenny Bruce, Marian McPartland, Leslie Uggams, The Diamonds, Roy Clark, Johnny Nash, and Patsy Cline. Among those who auditioned for the show, but who were not chosen to appear on the broadcast, were Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly.
