Welcome to Retroville! It's 1958!
In 1958, The Rifleman made its debut on television to begin its five-year run. Though the series had a strong first three years, and Chuck Connors was well-liked, the last two years saw the show's popularity wane.

The self-righteousness of Lucas became a problem for the producers, so love interests were introduced in the form of Miss Molly and, later, Lou Mallory. But even Lucas' custom-made Winchester rifle couldn't save the show as its ratings continued to fall.
