Live dramatic anthology

Oct 3, 1948 until Oct 2, 1955

The Philco Television Playhouse was one of the most distinguished of the many

"live" anthology dramas which aired during the so-called "Golden Age" of

television. The first episode of the Philco program was broadcast over

NBC on Sunday evening 3 October 1948 between 9:00 and 10:00 P.M.

It remained on the air for just over seven seasons until 1955.

At the beginning of its fourth season in 1951, The Philco Television Playhouse

acquired an alternating sponsor, the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company.

From the fall of 1951 until it went off the air, the program shared its Sunday night slot

with The Goodyear Theatre.

For a short period between 28 August 1955 and 12 February 1956,

the Philco Television Playhouse alternated with The Alcoa Hour

in addition to The Goodyear Theatre. Following the end of

The Philco Television Playhouse in 1955, The Alcoa Hour

and The Goodyear Theatre continued in alternation with

broadcasts of one hour live dramas until 29 September 1957.
