  1. Interesting that the ABC station didn't air Burke's Law, The Farmer's Daughter, or The Fight of the Week (unless they were DBed to other times in the week.)

    A little note from my half-vast store of nickel knowledge:
    The show on NBC at 1pm was People Will Talk, a game show of sorts from Heatter-Quigley, with Dennis James as host.
    The premise: a debate subject was posed, and two contestants would take each side and present their cases.
    Then a panel of fifteen people selected from the studio audience would vote Yes or No; whichever contestant convinced the plurality of panel members would win cash & prizes.
    If this seems familiar, maybe you remember The Celebrity Game which H-Q mounted as a summer replacement on CBS a couple of years later.
    Same premise, but with a panel of nine, all celebs (hence the name).
    And from there, H-Q further revised this into a straight (sort of) quiz, and called it Hollywood Squares.
    Something I just happened to remember.

    Now back to trying to anticipate which year you're going to land in for next week's TV Guide ....

    1. H-Q switched PEOPLE WILL TALK to an all-celebrity format not long before NBC cancelled it in December. My copy of the first edition of THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF TV GAME SHOWS has a picture from this version, with an impressive array of celebrities for a daytime quiz show, including Lloyd Bridges, Gloria Swanson, and Lee Marvin. According to what I have read, this format functioned as sort of a pilot to THE CELEBRITY GAME, which CBS premiered on Sunday afternoons in January.

  2. The episode of "Burke's Law" that was due to run on November 22, 1963 was "Who Killed Jason Shaw?" It is in public domain, and is widely available through various DVD re-packagers and is on several compilation discs. I believe it was re-scheduled for air on January 4, 1964.

  3. Many ABC affiliates during the 1960's (and beyond) either didn't show the Friday night programs or buried them on Sunday afternoon, figuring they could make more money on showing a movie and getting local ad money from it.
