The Clock is a 30-minute US anthology television series based upon the American Broadcasting Company radio series, which ran from 1946–48. The half-hour series mostly consisted of original dramas concerning murder, mayhem or insanity. Series narrator Larry Semon was the only regular; each week a new set of guest stars were featured.

Ninety-one episodes aired from 1949 to 1952, most of them on NBC, except for the final season which aired on ABC.
Among its directors were Fred Coe, one of the pioneering producers in the Golden Age of Television.
