Here’s the schedule for WNBT, the NBC station in New York City, for the week starting Sunday, February 2nd, 1947. The New York Times published daily listings for television stations in the city, including WNBT, alongside its comprehensive radio listings.
WNBT shook up its Sunday schedule as February 1947 got underway, replacing quiz show Face to Face with a dance instruction show called Dancing on Air (initially referred to as Let’s Dance by The New York Times). That same night, NBC Television Theater presented a drama called “Terror House” starring James Mason.
A special ice carnival program from the Brooklyn Ice Palace aired in place of Books on Trial on Monday at 8PM ET. At 9:10PM, The Voice of Firestone Televues aired its final installment. A few years later, in September 1949, NBC debuted The Voice of Firestone–a TV version of a long-running radio music series of the same name. The show moved to ABC in June 1954 and remained on air until June 1963.
Once again, no programs were listed for Tuesday or Wednesday this week.
Campus Hoopla on Friday, February 7th, featured cheerleaders from the now-closed Andrew Jackson High School in Queens, NY. The boxing match that night originated from St. Nicholas Arena rather than Madison Square Garden. Another unidentified feature film aired on Saturday, February 8th.
