Links debuted September 9, 1963 on NBC at 11:30 AM Eastern, replacing The Price Is Right in a scheduling shuffle with Concentration. On March 30, 1964, it moved to ABC and was replaced by Jeopardy!...which Links now ran against in the east (in the west, it aired against Your First Impression on NBC and the Search for Tomorrow / Guiding Light half-hour on CBS).
The fact that Links ended on Christmas Day should tell you that it didn't work.
