TV: “The Alfred Hitchcock Hour” Shifting from CBS to NBC

Mar. 2, 1964 - Alfred Hitchcock (pictured with Sean Connery on the set of “Marnie”), whose television future had been in doubt, will continue being genially ghoulish next season on a different network. His show has been bought by NBC, which will schedule it on Mondays, from 10 to 11 p.m. It was learned today that NBC completed the deal after CBS failed to renew the show.

The series, which has switched back and forth between two networks since it began in 1955, is now televised by CBS on Friday at 10 p.m.

Mr. Hitchcock is the third television personality scheduled to switch from CBS to NBC next season. The others are Jack Benny and Danny Thomas.

Until now, NBC had planned to present “The Eleventh Hour” on Mondays at 10 p.m. next season. But the series in which Ralph Bellamy plays a psychiatrist, now televised on Wednesdays, is expected to be dropped from the NBC schedule after this season.
