Old TV Shows

I intercepted an email the other day that was floating around gathering a list of old TV shows.

The email asked, “How many shows can we come up with that we USED to watch that are no
longer on TV?

I thought it would interesting to post the results and see if these brought back any memories for you.

To be honest, some of these I’ve never heard of (probably well beyond my years). Others I have fond memories of and others…well, let’s just say it’s a good thing they are no longer on the air.

Scan through the list, let us know which were your favorite and add any new ones you come up with.  Remember, just because they are old TV shows, meaning they are no longer on the air, doesn’t mean they have to be ancient.

I also thought it would be interesting to include when TV made its presence throughout the world.  For some, it wasn’t that long ago, while on the other hand, some Americans have to deal with ridiculous digital television converters.
