Hey....don't forget the Western period................Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Lawman, Rifleman, Checkmate, Big Valley..................and the spaghetti Western movies that I would never think of going to see these days!!
Mal...Soupy was my favorite! White Fang, Black Tooth, Pookie Back in the 50's, here in the Detroit area, he was on at lunch time. We'd watch when we came home from school for lunch.....
So many great ones already mentioned, but I have a crazy one here...
I love to watch "What's My Line" (it's on here at 3:00 AM) When they had the mystery guest, and it was someone like Ronald Reagan (he was just an "actor"), or Edward G. Robinson, or Lucy.... Often, they talk about current events at that time too, back in the 50's. All of this when there was no "politically correct", it seems strange. Also, they sit there and smoke while they do the show, can you imagine???
Oh, of course, Dynasty! I loved the cat fights between Crystal and Alexis.
My old boss used to own a hot night club in LA, right next door to a night club owned by Joan Collins. Joan's didn't attract the same young lively crowd that Walter's did... he had some interesting stories about my favorite vixen.
My Mother the Car was pretty funny. Loved watching F Troop! Used to make me laugh as a little girl. And the Phil Silvers Show, my dad's favorite, so we all watched.
