The television version of The General Electric Theater was broadcast every Sunday
evening on the CBS network until May 27, 1962. Each of the episodes was an 
adaptation of a novel, short story, play, film, or magazine fiction. 

Ronald Reagan (shown above) became the show’s only host on September 26, 1954. GE added a host to provide continuity, which was absent due to its anthology format. After four months, the show reached the Top Ten in the Nielsen Ratings.
