Old TV Shows I Like

Since we don't have cable, I've discovered stations that play old TV shows. My favs are:

  • 1. Match Game with Gene Rayburn
  • 2. To Tell The Truth
  • 3. the Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello (sp?) beach/surf movies
  • 4. What's My Line?
  • 5.Love American Style

Anyone else watch old favorites, or wish some old favorites would air?

    Mrs.K, I times watch antennae two channel. I think that is a cable channel. Do you have internet? How do you get on this site. I think you can stream a lot of programs on your computer. You Tube has a lot of things, and I am not sure what all.
    I enjoy old shows and programs also. Not a lot of lewdness, crudeness and violence.
    I can watch the news for a lot of that.

      Hi Rose. I have separate internet and phone. cable is outrageous in my area! I watch stuff on youtube. The Great Cake Bake and The Great Interior Decorating Show, both British shows, are my favs. One of these days, I’ll get interested in streaming, but right now, too much tv is distracting.

        I subscribed to Acorn TV which is like British Netflix which I also subscribe to. I love British programs. I was watching British Country House tonight. I spend too much time on screens, so I know what you mean.

    I love the good half hour comedies. “I Love Lucy” will always be one of my favorites. That woman had phenomenol comic genius…
