George Burns is still one of the world's greatest sex symbols - even though he now has to work nights to maintain this position.
But what is a sex symbol? With the help of fellow victims to their own fatal charms - John Schneider from The Dukes of Hazzard, Bernadette Peters, Dynasty's Linda Evans and a mystery guest star - George Burns sets out to discover what it is that makes a sex symbol so seductively sexy.
