Star Trek Rare Unaired version of the 2nd Pilot

The original print from Star Trek's 2nd pilot was never aired in this format - The Star Trek Television Show series Premiered on NBC on Thursday, September 8, 1966 Star Trek was created by Gene Roddenberry that followed the adventures of the crew of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise. The 1964 pilot "The Cage" featured Jeffrey Hunter as Enterprise captain Christopher Pike. The pilot was rejected by NBC executives as being too cerebral. Another pilot entitled "Where No Man Has Gone Before" starred the Enterprise captain played by William Shatner. Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock was the only character to return from the original pilot. The response was good and NBC gave the go ahead to the series. Critical response to the series was mixed and rating were lower than expected. In its second season, reoccurring guest star DeForest Kelley was added to the series' starring cast. A decline in the ratings, however, prompted NBC to attempt to cancel the series after its second season, but a letter writing campaign by die hard fans of the show saved it. Ratings continued to decline, and despite another letter writing campaign, the series was finally cancelled after its third season. Star Trek began running in syndication where it was discovered by legion of new fans and became a phenomenon.

The Andy Griffith Show starring Andy Griffith and Ron Howard as Oppie
THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW CBS - October 1960 Sheldon Leonard and Danny Thomas designed The Andy Griffith Show to fit the image of its star. Andy played Sheriff Andy Taylor, the fair-minded and easygoing head lawman of the small town of Mayberry, North Carolina. Mayberry was based upon Andy Griffith's real hometown, and perhaps this was partially responsible for the strong sense many viewers got that Mayberry was a real place. When he wasn't at the Sheriff's office, Andy, a widower, was applying his old-fashioned horse sense to the raising of his young son Opie (Ronny Howard), a task he shared with his Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier). Most of Andy's time, however, was spent controlling his earnest but over-zealous deputy, Barney Fife, played by Don Knotts
