      • According to the Chicago Tribune, this was the first episode broadcast in Chicago. It aired on WGN, channel 9, Sunday, December 19 at 8:00pm. Because the coaxal cable between NYC and Chicago had not yet been completed, WGN-9 aired a kinescope (16mm film) of this episode.
        Apparently, WGN did not remain a CBS affiliate for very long. In September 1949, WBKB, channel 4 became Chicago's CBS affiliate. (WBKB changed its call letters to WBBM in Febuary 1953, and moved to channel 2 in July 1953).
