This Day in TV History: Me and the Chimp premieres

50 years ago tonight, Me and the Chimp with Ted Bessel (he played Me) premiered on CBS.

Does it surprise you that it only lasted 13 episodes? Does it surprise you that it lasted that long?

Harry and Wally's Favorite TV Shows begins its entry on this one with, "This low-mark in Western civilization is an early creation of Garry Marshall, who later redeemed himself with Happy Days and Laverene and Shirley, both of which are Shakespeare compared to Me and the Chimp."
