Gunsmoke caused the cancellation of Gilligan’s Island. Gunsmoke was going to be cancelled in 1967, but the President of CBS, William Paley, was a big fan and vetoed the decision. Instead, he had the show moved from Saturdays to Mondays, cancelling Gilligan’s Island in the process. The move put Gunsmoke back in the top 10 in ratings again and it ran for 8 more years.
