Playboy’s Penthouse was an American variety/talk television show hosted by Playboy founder and then-editor/publisher Hugh Hefner. It was first broadcast on October 24, 1959 and ran in syndication for slightly more than one year. The show, recorded at Chicago station WBKB-TV, was set up as if it were a party at Hefner’s own apartment

In 1969, Hefner launched a show in a very similar style, Playboy After Dark which was taped in Los Angeles. (Wikipedia)
