1946
Mood:  mischievious
1946/47 – No ratings till the 1950/51 season.

The earlier shows started in 1944. TV's first few seasons are sketchy at it's best. Therefore, I will start the TV BOOK with the 1946 season.

Note: Any BOLD shows were cancelled in 1946 season; Voice Of Firestone Televues was cancelled in the third season.

Alternate Series: Let's Rhumba and You Are An Artist were on NBC Friday at 8:15 PM. Both shows were only fifteen minutes long.

First Series:

DuMont's first show, Serving Through Science, premiered on June 18, 1946, Tuesday at 9 PM. the show was thirty minutes.

NBC's first show, Voice Of Firestone Televues, premiered on April 10, 1944, Monday at various times. The show was 10/15 minutes long. In those days, the NBC feed was only in Philadelphia and Schenectady.

Local TV

Bristol–Myers Tele–Varieties was a local New York series in December, then a NBC show the following month.

Tidbits:

Dumont and NBC are the first two networks to be in prime time.

NBC was the first network to show boxing with Cavalcade Of Sports, best known as Gillette Cavalcade Of Sports, starting in 1948. The longest running boxing show ran for fourteen years. Cavalcade Of Sports was on two nights a week from 1946-48.

Small Fry Club premiered on Dumont in March 1947 only on Tuesday. The following month, it became the first series to expand five nights a week till the cancellation in June 1951. Bob Emery returned to Boston.
