Did You Know?


The live sitcom debuted on CBS on 10 January 1949 and remained on the Monday night line up at different times until June 1951. The Red Scare blacklisting (primarily affecting co-star Philip Loeb, ultimately with tragic results; forced off the show by nervous sponsors, he sank into a depression and committed suicide in 1955) coincided with a production contract expiration and the popular series ended up on NBC for two seasons through September, 1953 (in 1952 it was shown as a 15 minute program on Mondays-Wednesdays and Fridays, reverting to a half-hour program for the remainder of the run). The show then jumped briefly to the financially strapped DuMont Network (Apr-Oct 1954) on Tuesday nights as a half-hour show. This last DuMont cast would carry on for an additional season in first run syndication. Around 20 of the DuMont episodes survive, along with all of the "filmed" syndicated episodes. See more »

The Goldbergs 1949 was a slice of life
20 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a Jewish child living in a brownstone walk-up apartment in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood I enjoyed The Goldbergs because it was a show about people like us, the likes of which has never been seen again. Sadly today a wonderful heartwarming show like The Goldbergs might be considered "too stereotypical" or "politically incorrect" but we all loved it years ago. Also it's great to see guest appearances by then unknown but future stars of TV and movies an that show including Beatrice Pons (Lucille Toody on Car 54 Where Are You?) and Frank Sutton (Sgt. Carter on Gomer Pyle USMC) among others. The acting on this show was superb, making the characters truly believable. A great under-rated show for sure. ☺
