Synopsis: Second only to Gunsmoke among long-running westerns, Bonanza was the archetype of the “property” western that dominated the genre during the 1960s. Set in Virginia City, Nevada, it told the story of the Cartwrights, owners of a nearby 600,000-acre (give or take a few) ranch — the Ponderosa (named because of the Ponderosa Pines growing there). Hardworking, resourceful, and independent, the Cartwrights seemed to devote little time to running the ranch, despite the fact that their hired help never numbered more than four; obvisouly, the Cartwrights knew good labor when they saw it. During its first two seasons, the show was seen on Saturdays and failed to outdraw CBS’s Perry Mason. In the fall of 1961, it was scheduled on Sundays at 9 p.m. It remained there for 11 years, ranking consistently among the top ten.
