50 years ago today, on Thursday, September 29, 1960, the sit-com “My Three Sons” premiered on CBS.

The show, about a widower with three sons, ran for 12 seasons and starred Fred MacMurray as Steve Douglas.

One interesting note: It’s been said that MacMurray filmed all his scenes back-to-back in a matter of weeks so he could be done with it, leaving the supporting cast to go it alone the rest of the shooting schedule. Way to go Fred — that’s a good way to foster comraderie.

My Three Sons” premiered on This date in TV history.
