The show was fairly popular in its day. Still, it's not nearly as well-remembered as competitors such as ''Series/TheTwilightZone1959'', ''Series/AlfredHitchcockPresents'', or radio's ''Suspense''. One possible reason is confusion over the name; the series obviously couldn't retain the title ''Kraft Suspense Theatre'' in reruns, but it somehow got ''two'' {{Syndication Title}}s, ''Suspense Theatre'' and ''Crisis'' (no relation to [[Series/{{Crisis}} the 2014 series]] with [[SimilarlyNamedWorks the same name]]).
