Genre: Drama

Writer: Ellis Kadison (teleplay)

Plot Synopsis: Fabian as a unrepentant hep-cat playing musical chairs with the hot seat. The flippancy of the killer for kicks in the episode was singled out by the PTA. Senate Sub-Committee hearings agreed that violence on TV was bad and BUS STOP was quickly pulled off the air and has never, to this day, ever been shown nationally again.
