Happy New Year from Television Obscurities. If you’re like me, you didn’t make any resolutions. However, I do hope to find some time to devote to Television Obscurities this year. Regular visitors to the site will know there was little in the way of new content in 2022. I won’t make any promises for 2023 but stay tuned.

- Girl About Town (NBC, 1948)
- Jamie (ABC, 1953-1954)
- Steve Canyon (NBC, 1958-1959)

Let’s not forget the William Bendix series of THE LIFE OF RILEY (1953-1958).
Life of Riley is probably less obscure than any of the above, and it was on radio for some years before moving to television. Happy 20th Television Obscurities!
