But Eva paved the way, especially in early television's live dramatic series that came out of New York ("GE Theater", "Philco Playhouse", "Climax", etc.) and later guesting enough in the 1960s to keep herself moderately known. As Zsa Zsa's career outstripped itself in the 60s on "Hollywood Squares", Eva received a plum series opportunity on the inane, but popular, "Green Acres". As Lisa Douglas, Manhattan socialite turned farmer's wife ("I gad allergic smalling hay") she was the Desi/Ricky figure opposite Eddie Albert's supposed Lucy, drifting through chicken coops and hogpens in her eternal maribou negligees, blank but childlike, trusting and sweet. Middle America tuned in for a surprising five years and 170 episodes.

Her charm remained intact guesting on such happening series as "The Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island" and showing up to chat amicably on Merv Griffin and Mike Douglas, the former of which was engaged to her in some press agent's dream. She smiled glamorously from the covers of her wig catalog, bewigged in the usual lookalike Gabor style, causing more confusion about who's-who than ever.
