    I love post apocalyptic NO in HD and really, really wanted K-Ville to be good but it was not to be. SHARK does not have to worry about the writers strike... they use the same script for every show. LIFE is the only new show my wife and I both enjoy, thought not sure why. But then, I liked Caveman!

    I shudder to think how a Sith Lord might decorate for Christmas.

    As I said, "I stopped watching any shows that you were lost if you missed a episode."

    It may seem an unfortunate attitude, However I have limited time to watch TV and if I can not follow a episode because I missed the one before it then I give it the heave ho. The networks may be doing this to ensure a steady viewership. In my case it backfires. Tonight is backup the computers hard drive to DVDs so I'll get in 2+ hours of Tv between changing discs. More viewing than usual and that is mainly because the TV is also my computer monitor..

    I'm sure you mistyped in this line "So many great sows have been canceled because of this." However since a Sow is a female pig..... :)

    BTW some serials have made it in primetime, just not with me. I'd rather watch a Jack Benny, or Gleason or Red Skelton, Carol Burnett, And of course Laugh-In than many of todays TV shows.

    That merits a rare, but incredibly deserved, +1 from me.

    I've never even heard of them, other than Laugh In.

    I saw them all. You didn't miss anything. I had to watch Lawrence Welk every Saturday night. And a one, and a two,...

    I loved all of these and proudly admit to having seen all of them except Jack Benny on their original runs. That said, I was young enough that I had to sneak-watch Laugh-In because my folks thought it too risque!

    I too had to watch Lawrence Welk, Melody Ranch and Polka Parade but I was young enough to like it - then I discovered Rock 'n Roll and that was a whole 'nother story!:dance07:

    Or as I call it, "Desperate Executives." The triangle with the mistress and the wife is ridiculously far-fetched but good for laughs.
    the infertile wife has asked the mistress to be a surrogate mother, but she's afraid of needles so they have to try the old-fashioned way
    "How am I supposed to make a baby when my wife keeps popping into the room?"

    For those that watch Journeyman, I read last night that NBC has decided to stop production on it unless the recent two-part episodes have high numbers. There are still three more episodes to air after the two-parter is over.

    When I was young and visiting my grandparents they always watched, Welk, Pat Boone, See the USA in your Chevrolet (Dinah Shore) And So on.

    Around here in the NYC area, Lawrence Welk runs at 6PM saturday evenings on WLIW one of the three PBS stations. The others being WNET and NJN.

    TBH I'd rather watch Lawrence Welk than junk like kids nation, sorry fans but fake relaity shows don't cut it with me. I never even tried watching Cane, I didn't like the soundtrack of the commercial so......

    I wasn't around for them but I have a large collection on vinyl of old time radio shows that I used to listen to them after transferring to cassete back when I was on the road a lot. Things like Fred Allen, The Shadow, Fibber McGee and Molly, Jack Benny. Mostly Dramas and Comedies.

    Oh well you know I agree with that. I think Jack Benny was probably the innately funniest person of the 20th century. Who else can get laughs just standing there, no mean feat on the radio!

    That is unfortunate to hear .. Hopefully it can be rejuvenated once this strike is over, but it may be a casualty of the situation. Journeyman is may favorite new show of the season and I'd love to see it continue on even if that means SciFi instead of NBC and 15 episodes/yr instead of 22.

    Oh well, par for the course I guess.

    I forgot about Pat Boone's show. And Dinah Shore. I was forced to watch these shows. I could not see what was so funny about I Love Lucy either. That last sentence should stir some people up.

    Bob Hope.

    And I actually saw the scene where some woman put her hand in his pants pocket and said "I feel crazy". Hope replied, "Reach down a little farther and you'll feel nuts". The screen immediately blacked out, but he got it out. Red Skelton was another who got blacked out screens for some of the things he said. No "seven second delay" back then.

    Even as a child I remember finding the relationship between Benny and Rochester offensive. But he was funny. And so was Benny.
