Summertime USA was the 1953 summer replacement for another music series, Jane Froman's USA Canteen. Teresa Brewer and Mel Torme cohosted the show, and were seen in different resort settings on each of the twice-weekly live telecasts. The scenic backgrounds ranged from Manhattan, Atlantic City and Niagara Falls in the USA, to Scotland, Rio de Janeiro, Havana and the Casbah overseas.
