Gunsmoke
Warner Brothers Cartoons

With the exception of the two cooking shows and the Little Rascals, all television was done in the evenings. The only thing on in the afternoon was 'the stories', and those were boring with a capital B. The Foreign Film Festival was on Saturday afternoons. We all played outside after school and all day during the summer. We only watched tv from 7pm till 9pm.
Our lists are so long because we all watched whatever the prime time show of the evening was...regardless. We also watched either all NBC, CBS or ABC for the entire evening. Who wanted to get up to change the channel? We put on one channel at 7pm and left it on till we went to bed, suffering through all the commercials.

I also loved watching The Bowery Boys and the Abbott and Costello Show. Loved Costello....what a riot. I liked the 3 Stooges, too. Pretty sure those were all reruns when I was watching them.

I'm pretty sure Jackie Gleason came on late in the evening. My brother and I shared a room with bunkbeds. If we put our heads at the foot of the bed and propped our pillows just so, we were able to see the television in the living room. That's how I watched Jackie Gleason and I'm pretty sure Ed Sullivan, too. I must have been about 6 or so..
