I'd call that the Lead Age except that Saturday night's The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Bob Newhart and the newly emerging SNL (preceded on Friday night by the Midnight Special) owned the same period. Perhaps that makes it the Bronze Age of Television.

I'll agree with this post. But wasn't that in the '70s?

That was probably the last time there was a good lineup on Saturday nights. Always had a battle with my second wife who always wanted to spend Saturday nights nightclubbing. I usually lost...:nono2:
