I will confound this argument entirely by saying I really like Fahrenheit 451's opening credits.
Oh yeah, that was inspired. Of course, it's not too different from what Quinn Martin shows on TV were doing at the time, having the announcer declare the episode title and guest stars, but it was a great thematic fit for the story.
Godard did it in 1963, in CONTEMPT (three years before FAHRENHEIT 451--I can't say when it comes to the TV shows you're referring to). I only know because I just saw that film for a class, but, there you go.
