What's on TV? Monday, October 22, 1951




One of the things you have to keep in mind when looking at this week's listings is that not all stations program continuously during their broadcast day. Therefore, as enjoyable as it might be, we should not assume that WABD's Johnny Olsen Rumpus Room runs for five hours. Ah well. Studio One's "Macbeth" stars Charlton Heston, who did a lot of live television before moving to the big screen. And WNHC's Ruth Lyons’ 50 Club is from the show's brief national run; I wrote about the storied Ruth Lyons here. It's fun how these little bits all eventually come together, isn't it?

  1. Hello again.
    I come to you today with the Chicago edition of TV Forecast, which ultimately merged with the many local TV Guides to form the national magazine a few years afterwards.
    The networks were still setting up at this point (the coast-to-coast coaxial cable had only just been hooked up), so "national" shows were few and far between.
    There were some shows which matched up between New York and Chicago; here are a few from Monday:
    - Did the New York edition have loglines for episodes? The Chicago magazine did - and my Olde DVD Wall is coming through for me in unexpected ways.
    On NBC (Channel 5 here), at 8 pm there's Lights Out presenting "The Deal", with Tom Ewell selling his wife to the Devil - and then trying to void the sale; it's a morality play with an uplifting ending (sort of).
    By the way, the Devil is played here by Joseph Wiseman (pre-Dr. No), with an assist from Martin Gabel, while the wife is played by a young Anne Bancroft (then known as Anne Marno - but that's another story ...).
    I've got that show on DVD; regrettably, I don't have the one that follows, Robert Montgomery Presents "I Wouldn't Be In Your Shoes", from a classic Cornell Woolrich story; on the lookout for that one ...
    Earlier that evening on ABC, there's Hollywood Screen Test, a talent show hosted by Neil Hamilton (yes, Batfans, Commissioner Gordon himself (eventually, anyway)), with an assist from Arlene Francis (Mrs. Martin Gabel, op cit.).
    - Later that same evening, I was pleased to see that the ABC network picked up Studs' Place from our own Channel 7, with Studs Terkel, Win Stracke, Chet Roble, and Bev Younger.
    I'm caught in a time bind today, so I have to stand down momentarily; back with more later (I hope).

  2. An epochal time in TV when there were no shows to syndicate and run as reruns! Imagine WPIX without any "Honeymooners" episodes...
