The Meet the Press set in November of 1975.

It was on this date in 1945 that the radio show American Mercury Presents Meet the Press premiered. Shortly after it moved to television, the title was shortened to Meet the Press. It has since gone on to become the longest-running television show of all time. And it was on this date in 1956 that The Ten Commandments premiered in theaters.
