This week’s MeTV 50.2 Spotlight is The Rifleman!
First premiering in 1958, Chuck Connors blazed on to the screen as a rancher whose trusty weapon was a rapid fire Winchester rifle.
Word is, this was the first TV show to ever have an actor or actress play the role of a widowed parent.
His character, Lucas McCain, once ranked #32 in TV Guide’s “50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time” list.
Watch "The Rifleman" weeknights at 6 & 6:30pm and Saturdays at 4 & 4:30pm on MeTV 50.2. Also available on TWC channel 151.
