Here are some favorites of mine that haven't been mentioned.

These aired in the afternoon when I was watching them:
The Amos & Andy Show (should be shown again -- maybe on PBS)
Our Gang
Our Miss Brooks
The Life of Riley
The Phil Silvers (Remember Sgt. Bilko)
People Are Funny (Art Linkletter -- Kids say the darndest things)
Nighttime "can't wait" shows:
Alfred Hitchcock
The Twilight Zone
The Jack Benny Show
The Red Skelton Show (worth mentioning twice)
The Wonderful World of Disney (remember Davie Crockett?!)

many of the above, especially Dark Shadows and Johnny Quest!
And Sealab 2020, and that Sat. am show with the chimpanzee version of Columbo...
And UFO....
and Green Acres and Petticoat Junction and Courtship of Eddie's Father
and Please Don't Eat The Daisies and Buffy, Jody, Mr French (forget the show name)
and Mr Ed and the Andy Griffith Show and and and.........

Remember fine tuning the foil flagged rabbit ears?
Remember when ANY fairly clear picture with understandable sound was an
acceptable channel to watch.... and if it was a really really good show, it could even
do the never ending vertical scroll thing the entire time? (Except for when it mysteriously
stopped scrolling for the Shake and Bake commercials.....)

I laugh about the INCREDIBLE QUALITY OF HIGH DEF TV.... because I remember how it used to be, LOLOL!

I remember when a running vacuum cleaner would make the picture fuzzy.
