* this title and taping date published in Mary Wilson's book "Dreamgirl" are probably not exact. The date is in conflict with the Supremes engagement at the Roostertail in Detroit (January 17 to 29, 1966).

Third appearance of the Supremes on this show.

My World Is Empty Without You:
Somewhere:
Note: Diana Ross is described in several books (Tony Turner "All That Glittered" p.104, Mark Robowsky "The Supremes A Saga..." p. 281...) as spreading her arms up in a V angle at the end of “My World Is Empty Without You” and therefore occulting Mary’s and Florence’s faces. 
The authors either didn’t watch the sequence or just wanted to perpetuate wrong rumors because this is just not true! 
Everybody can check the video on youtube and see that Diana stands during the whole song on one end of the group and did not obscure any faces at any moment of this performance.
