  1. “Outer Limits” did well in the ratings during it’s first season (when it was on Monday nights).

    But ABC moved the show to Saturdays at 7:30 Eastern/Pacific for Season Two, where it had to face “Jackie Gleason” and “Flipper”.

    By early 1965, “Outer Limits” would get cancelled.

    Had ABC kept the original “Outer Limits” in it’s first-season timeslot, the show likely would have become a long-running hit.

  2. NEED WE REMIND YOU?? outer limits gOt off with a rocky start.. BACK . IN november 1963 with the upsetting episode featuring SIDNEY BLACKMER as embroiled in a presidential kidnapping attempt and its PROXIMITIY TO THE KENNEDYASSASSINATION.. &&&&NO ONE SLEPT WELL THAT ENTIRE AUTUMN!!!
