When things on TV were really funny

Check out the Dean Martin Roasts on Prime. They are hilarious. Lots of other good ones on Prime as well like All in the Family and Sanford and Son. I also love to watch the old Bugs Bunny cartoons. Watched one the other day from 1943 and there was a newspaper shown. Headlines were about supply chain shortages, riots in cities, high price of meat and groceries, and of course some WW2 stuff, but I found that pretty ironic. Same things going on today.

My entire family has restarted the Andy Griffith show for the umpteenth time and playing dominoes after dinner/before bed. I need another easily accessible show to introduce them to. What am I forgetting? What show is family friendly, wholesome….but great entertainment that I’m not thinking of from years past? I’m not a Waltons guy, or Leave it to Beaver. Where can I find Bonanza?

If you have Netflix....the cinematography is the best I've ever seen on TV. The show has been on for 15 or 16 years in Canada.

Lucy was pretty damn good in my opinion.
I never said she wasnt good, just that some of the skits she did gave me cold chills. i'd stop watching when that happened. i watched plenty of her shows, and enjoyed them. She is the only comedian that did that. dont know why.
musta struck some kinda cord.

i was wrong about the only one, [Whoa memory, slow down], she was the best at cold chills.

TV ain't what it used to be. Thats why I mostly watch Andy Griffith, Beverly Hillbillies, Gunsmoke, Wagon Train, etc. With the exception of Yellowstone of course!
