The original edition of the pilot for “The Monkees” made television history. At the time, it broke the record for receiving the lowest ratings for a pilot since TV was invented. However, the producers edited that pilot to include clips of Davy Jones’ and Michael Nesmith’s original screen tests at the show’s opening and that broadcast generated one of the highest test ratings of all time.
