On This Day October 2nd

On this day, October 2, 1955 CBS debuted "Alfred Hitchcock Presents". In 1959 on this same day the original "Twilight Zone" debuted on CBS. It ran until 1964 airing 154 episodes.

It wasn't until October 7, 1996 that another network drama debuted similar to it. It was on that day 'FOX News' first went on-the-air. This was 58 years and 23 days after Orson Welles reported on CBS radio about a invasion from Mars on Oct. 30, 1938.
