THE 42 SHOWS OF CBS (in the 1962 season)

This terrific compilation video shows the teaser/intros to an astounding forty-two shows that comprised CBS’s 1962 season line-up. How was it possible that there were so many shows in one season? For one thing prime-time was defined more broadly then than it would be now–7PM to 11:30 PM. Also, most shows were a half hour in length. Still the line-up is quite impressive and many of these shows are apparently still viewable via Antennae TV, a service which I keep thinking I sort of want to have but never get around to actually signing up for. A bit like Yoga class, I guess.
