The Eleventh Hour is an American medical drama about psychiatry starring Wendell Corey, Jack Ging, and Ralph Bellamy, which aired 62 new episodes plus selected rebroadcasts on NBC from October 3, 1962, to September 9, 1964. The series, loosely comparable to the 1961 NBC hit Dr. Kildare, starring Richard Chamberlain and Raymond Massey, reveals the human stories of people who come to the psychiatrist either through private practice, a hospital, or a court of law. In 1963, the series shared a two-part crossover episode with Dr. Kildare; both programs used the theme of wise teacher and young intern.
The term "eleventh hour" refers to a time of last resort in an aggrieved person's life, as he faces a potential nervous breakdown. Ging appeared in both seasons as Dr. Paul Graham, a clinical psychologist to Corey's first-season character of the psychiatrist Dr. Theodore Bassett, advisor to the Department of Corrections. The first season hence offered episodes about the mental health of criminals. In the second season, which ended new episodes on April 22, 1964, Bellamy replaced Corey in the role of Dr. Richard Starke, a psychiatrist engaged in private practice. The executive producer was Norman Felton; Sam Rolfe was the producer.
Runtime: 60 minutes

For other series with this name, see The Eleventh Hour. The Eleventh Hour is a Canadian television drama series which aired weekly on CTV from 2002 to 2005. The show revolves around the reporters and producers at a fictional television newsmagazine series, The Eleventh Hour. Unhappy with the newsmagazine's shrinking audience, the network has brought in a new executive producer, Kennedy Marsh, to reorient the show in a more ratings-driven tabloid journalism direction. The tension between the ratings imperative and the more traditional journalistic ethics of the show's senior staff is the primary conflict that drives the show, but storylines also include the team's efforts to get the stories that will make it to air each week. The Eleventh Hour was produced by Alliance Atlantis, Canada's largest film and television production house. It aired in the U.S. on Sleuth, under the title Bury the Lead, to distinguish it from a CBS series with a similar name.
