This show was originally broadcast on Wednesday night from 7:30 to 9:00 EST during the 1967-68 season. It lasted only one season due to it competition. On ABC it went up against Batman, The Flying Nun, and Bewitched; on NBC, Daniel Boone and Ironside. In the 1960's and 70's it was a common practice for the networks to rebroadcast old programs during the summer rerun season, even if the show had been off the air for years. Such was the case for this show, which was shown by CBS during the summer of 1971, three years after it had been canceled. See more »
This show is very rarely seen nowdays,but it was one of the most exciting westerns ever devised for television. Their was always something happening in the town of Cimarron each week as Marshal Crown got rid of the bad guys with the help of his deputy MacGregor(who was on the same level as Gunsmoke's Festus) who can shoot and ride like the rest of them. Stuart Whitman was a marvel to look at as the role of the Marshal,and he took out a lot of bad guys here being also TV's most violent western as well. It was on the same level as Gunsmoke though,but the same producers(Micheal Garrison and Philip Leacock) brought more depth into this show than anything else. Interesting point on this show:It had some stiff competition though,being the 2nd western to run 90 minutes(which went up against "The Virginian" which was on a rival network) for the CBS network during its run from 1967-1971. If you do see it,make sure you catch some of the episodes if they're on a local cable channel.
