1960s / Failed TV Series - East Side West Side
In 1963 CBS introduced a bold new TV series that was way ahead of its time: East Side, West Side. It starred George C. Scott as Neil Brock, a New York City social worker whose job put him in the forefront with the seedy aspects of the big city. Topics included alcoholism, drug abuse, prostitution, race relations, and even statutory rape. Because of its controversial nature, some CBS affiliates chose not to air the hour-long show which was slotted at 10 p.m. on Mondays--right after The Andy Griffith Show. Predictably, East Side, West Side also had trouble getting sponsors. According to the reference book Total Television, "TV audiences in 1963 just weren't ready for a hard-hitting series focusing on social problems, especially one in which the problems remained unsolved at the hour's end." Only 26 episodes were made. By January 1964 CBS decided to ax East Side, West Side but aired the show occasionally until September of that year. Here is the opening montage for one episode.
