I loved all the old shows on Nick-At Nite, Car 54, Donna Reed, Make Room For Daddy, F-Troop, My 3 Sons, Mr Ed, etc. And the old cartoons, You Can't Do That On Television, Double Dare, the original, Turkey TV

Yep - completely agree. There are channels out there that carry classic TV (www.rtnville.com) but D* hasn't chosen to add one yet. .

RTN has a new web address: http://www.myretrotv.com/

I think it's pretty sad when there are 150+ channels available to DirecTV customers and that there is nothing on at least half of the time. Nick at Nite started off great and then sold itself to modern "classics". It's the same story for TVLand. TVland has gotten to the point of being unwatchable. Unfortunately, I believe that the "mainstream" rules the airwaves. If a certain program or genre of programs doesn't fit within the mainstream and will not generate a mass audience, it is a no-go. It's pretty sad because my taste in TV and music does not fit withing the mainstream 90% of the time.

You said it ML!

Same thing with other "networks" such as TLC and even History Channel!

There are times when there is absolutely nothing to watch out of all the channels I get!
Yes, I have a television that I watch from time to time.

I'd rather see them bring back the old "Logan's Run" series, or "The Planet of the Apes" TV show. How about the "6 million dollar man", "good times", or "Heart to Heart"?

I heard Viacom wanted and tried to make a classic Nick channel but in the end didn't have enough funding. Does anyone know if that's true or not?
