The fall 1958 television season begins with some returning shows ("Highway Patrol") and some new programs, including "The Ann Sothern Show" and "Desilu Playhouse."

Although "Desilu Playhouse" had a relatively brief run, it is notable for launching two of the most important series in TV history: "Twilight Zone" ("Time Element," starring William Bendix, which aired Nov. 24, 1958) and "The Untouchables," starring Robert Stack and Kennan Wynn, which aired in two parts beginning April 19, 1959.
