Fibber McGee and Molly with guest star Charles Lane (1959)

The very famous and very popular radio sitcom Fibber McGee & Molly was one of the last OTR shows to be converted into a television series. Unlike the well-remembered radio counterpart, nobody remembers this 1959 NBC sitcom. It did not have Jim and Marion Jordan at all.

This show did not survive beyond 1959 for two reasons: Bob Sweeney was no Jim Jordan. And Fibber McGee and Molly was no longer a major show, having been reduced to a series of 5 minute features on the NBC Radio MONITOR program (due to Marian Jordan's health).
