Person to Person is a popular television program in the United States that originally ran from 1953 to 1961, with two episodes of an attempted revival airing in 2012. Edward R. Murrow hosted the original series from its inception in 1953 until 1959, interviewing celebrities in their homes from a comfortable chair in his New York studio (his opening: "Good evening, I'm Ed Murrow. And the name of the program is 'Person to Person'. It's all live – there's no film"). In the last two years of its original run, Charles Collingwood was the host.

Although Murrow is best remembered as a reporter on programs such as Hear It Now and See It Now and for publicly confronting Senator Joseph McCarthy, on Person to Person he was a pioneer of the celebrity interview.

The program was well planned but not strictly scripted, with as many as six cameras and TV lighting installed to cover the guest's moves through his home, and a microwave link to transmit the signals back to the network. The guests wore wireless microphones to pick up their voices as they moved around the home or its grounds. The interviews were done live.[1] The two 15-minute interviews in each program were typically with very different types of people, such as a movie star and a scientist. Guests often used the appearance to promote their latest project or book.[2]

Guests

The first guest was Roy Campanella who had just hit a Home run to win Game 3 for the Brooklyn Dodgers against the New York Yankees in the 1953 World Series. He later appeared in a wheelchair in 1959 following his automobile accident.[3]

The long list of guests included then-Senator John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline, Elizabeth Taylor, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Jerry Lewis, Marlon Brando, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Liberace, Ethel Waters,[4] Sammy Davis Jr., Groucho and Harpo Marx, Margaret Mead, Harry Truman, Marilyn Monroe, W.C. Handy, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, Fidel Castro, Bing Crosby, Leopold Stokowski, Kirk Douglas and John Steinbeck.[5]

The show featuring Bing Crosby and Mary Margaret McBride in December 1953 was the first time the show appeared in the Top 10 TV shows as measured by Trendex.[3] The highest-rated featured Elizabeth Taylor, Mike Todd and Mark Van Doren with a 35 Trendex.[3]

Revival

On December 15, 2011, CBS News announced they would bring back the news series with Charlie Rose and Lara Logan as hosts.[6] The network announced plans for two separately-scheduled episodes, based on pre-taped rather than live interviews.[7] According to Susan Zirinsky, an executive producer of the new show and of 48 Hours, they "tried to stay true to Edward R. Murrow's concept. The two reporters remain in New York, and we are taken in by the artist or the newsmaker into a special place. There's an intimacy when someone allows you into their home."[7]

The first episode, airing on February 8, 2012, featured interviews with George Clooney, Jon Bon Jovi, and Warren Buffett.[8] The premiere attracted 5.9 million viewers, less than a third of the viewers watching American Idol and fewer than the 8.44 million who watched The Middle; it outrated One Tree Hill and Whitney, though the latter attracted a larger share of the 18–49 audience.[9]

Had the two specially-scheduled episodes been well-received, Person to Person could have become a regularly scheduled series.[7] The second episode aired on November 23, 2012 (Black Friday), featuring Sean Penn, Alicia Keys and Drew Brees.
