TV: Jackie Gleason to Return to CBS

Feb. 11, 1963 - Jackie Gleason (pictured with Lucille Ball) has had a change of heart and now has elected to do his Saturday night variety show for another year on CBS. This means that “Perry Mason” will remain as a Thursday night attraction. “The Real McCoys” next year will be lifted out of its Sunday night spot and carried at 8:30 Saturdays. “Dennis the Menace” will be dropped, to be replaced by “My Favorite Martian,” a space opera, on Sundays.
