And Everything Nice is an American fashion-theme television program broadcast on the now defunct DuMont Television Network. The series ran from 1949 to 1950. The program was hosted by Maxine Barrat (born February 28, 1915), who appeared as herself in MGM's 1943 film Thousands Cheer.


Barrat chatted with guests and presented fashion tips for women of the 1940s. The program, produced and distributed by DuMont, aired live:

  • Tuesdays at 7 pm ET on most DuMont affiliates during the 1948-1949 television season;
  • Mondays at 8:30 pm ET in July and August 1949;
  • Mondays at 9 pm ET from September 1949 to January 1950.[1]

The series was cancelled in early 1950, and was one of several low-budget fashion programs, such as Fashions on Parade, broadcast by the DuMont network.
