What's on TV? Monday, September 15, 1958

As such things go, this is a pretty quiet day in the new season; Channel 2, the Twin Cities educational channel, actually has more series debuts today than any of the other stations. Jimmy Dean starts his weekday variety series, which is perhaps more memorable for this candid bit of commentary after the show's cancellation. Don't you wish more people spoke their minds today? (Pause, thinking about Internet...) Wait a minute; forget I said that.

  1. "Tic Tac Dough"?

    The original version was more like "Rig Tac Dough"!

    (But in 1978, the show was revived in a squeaky-clean version).

  2. Despite a good timeslot (sandwiched between "As The World Turns" and "Art Linkletter's House Party", two of the most popular daytime TV shows of the era). "The Jimmy Dean Show" didn't last long.

    It wasn't until October, 1961 (with the premiere of "Password") that CBS finally found a strong show for the 2 P.M. Eastern (1 P.M. Central) weekday time period.

    For much of the 1960's, "As The World Turns", "Password", and "House Party" was a dominant 1-2-3 punch for CBS in the early afternoon hours.

    1. This was the best primetime variety show on TV. Jimmy Ray Dean presided over the program and performed "Big Bad John."

  3. Jimmy Dear was an endorser for a line of ready-to-eat sausages bearing his name.
