This show was edited from sixty minute episodes to thirty minutes and added to Night Gallery (1969) for syndication. Because this show essentially ran for one season, it had too few episodes to sell to local stations in syndication, as those stations want a series with a certain number of episodes to keep their audience from tiring from constant repeats. By combining the two shows into one, it was much easier to sell the combined package of both shows. See more »
In January 1972, "The Sixth Sense" began as a midseason replacement series on ABC and was a 60 minute episode per Saturday evening. (ABC had quickly dispatched most of their new shows that had begun earlier in September of '71.) While not a runaway hit by any stretch of the imagination,especially when your main audience would've been watching "Mission: Impossible" on CBS, the show was picked up for the following fall (in the same killer time slot)and was a distant memory by winter. While not nearly as subversive as "Kolchak" or even "The X Files," the series had a distinct flair for creepiness for early 1970s standards. Having seen some of the cut and paste jobs done in the syndication package, I can say without doubt that the show was much more interesting at its full 60 minute length. One hopes that with the new interest in old TV shows on DVD, Universal might dust off the sixty minute episodes for those of us who often championed shows without a prayer on ABC.
