Well, I made the commitment last week to induct a new member into the Television Crossover Hall of Fame every Friday, so here goes. And this week’s entry follows last week’s recruitment of the New York Daily Chronicle….
‘THE PATTY DUKE SHOW’
“THE PATTY DUKE SHOW – STILL ROCKIN’ IN BROOKLYN HEIGHTS”
As the editor of the newspaper, it stands to reason that Martin Lane would have his imprimatur on all those editions of the Chronicle as seen in other TV shows, at least into the 1980s.
And that includes the four editions of the same paper seen in "And When The Sky Was Opened", an episode of 'The Twilight Zone' - even if he doesn't remember the alterations to Earth Prime-Time that day....
So even though he does have two official shows for his official tally, the rest have to fall into the reference category.
Welcome to the Hall, Martin Lane!
