TV: “The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters” Canceled

Jan. 15, 1964 - ABC-TV will put an end to “The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters” on March 15. The drama series starring Dan O’Herlihy and Kurt Russell (pictured with Slim Pickens), which made its debut last September, is televised on Sundays from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. The program faced stiff competition on CBS on Sundays from “My Favorite Martian” and the first half of “The Ed Sullivan Show.” NBC aired “Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color” in the same time slot. “Jaimie McPheeters” will be replaced on March 22 by reruns of “Empire,” a Western series starring Richard Egan, Terry Moore, and Ann Seymour. The rerun episodes were televised last season by NBC. “Empire” will be presented in color on the five stations owned by ABC, according to Edgar J. Scherick, vice president of programs. Mr. Scherick also said that repeats of “77 Sunset Strip” would replace “Channing,” a drama series about a college professor on April 15, at 10 p.m. “Channing” was another show that started last fall.
