The All-American Sports Show was an NBC sustainer that aired during the summer of 1953.  The series featured dramatizations of famous sports personalities and events.  I have six episodes.

The shows posted above are long gone so I have no idea what dates were assigned to the shows. Going through my collection I have dates which do not match Jerry H's or Goldin's dates. My biggest problem is the show that salutes Graham McNamee. I have the date 9-11-53, they have 9-15-53, the New York Times has 9-18-53. At the beginning of the show they announce that tomorrow the 1953 college football season begins. NBC will broadcast the Maryland vs Missouri game. Looking at the schedule from 1953 the Maryland vs Missouri game was Friday, September 18: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]  This would date the show 9-17-53. Is EVERYBODY wrong?

Yes, nightkey, that's what I said. My question was about the Graham McNamee episode of the show. The New York Times lists it as September 18. ON THAT BROADCAST they announce the game was happening TOMORROW. The game would have already happened. Jerry and Dave list the show as September 15.

I made a typo. I meant to write I see the date of the Maryland-Missouri football game as Sep. 19.

Back to your point. The show aired nationwide on Fridays. I see newspaper listings in at least 12 markets around the country for Friday and none for any earlier days in the week. There are a few Thursday newspaper listings but they are actually listing the Friday's broadcasts early.

According to all newspaper reports, the Maryland-Missouri game was played on Sep. 19, 1953.

I have the episode in my collection as Sep. 18, 1953, so, I would say not everyone is wrong. But the dates given by Jerry Haendiges and Dave Goldin are wrong.

Thanks nightkey! That makes sense. I thought it was strange that the college game would be on Friday but that's what the 1953 schedule cited above said. In case anyone is interested these are the dates listed in the New York Times for the series:
07/17  AASS Premiere
07/24  AASS
07/31  AASS
08/07  AASS
08/14  SPECIAL  (Present and Accounted For: Korean Documentary on Communist Atrocities)
08/21  AASS
08/28  AASS
09/04  AASS
09/11  AASS
09/18  AASS Salute to Graham McNamee
09/25  AASS The Casey Stengel  Story
10/02  AASS
10/09  FIBBER McGEE begins in this time slot
