Who Remembers Early TV Shows?

I just read that Law & Order is losing their star Jesse Martin as he is pursuing his musical interests. He will be missed as I very much enjoy the part he plays. This happens time and again; we become so attached to our shows and the actors that it is a personal loss when the show is canceled or they change actors.

I promise myself each time a new show starts that I will not become a faithful viewer, but somehow it doesn’t work for me. I still miss JAG and David James Elliott. Peter Falk as Columbo, The Early Show, The Late Show, The Late, Late Show and what about those early days of Kukla, Fran and Ollie? {or click here}

On Tuesday evening was Milton Berle’s Texaco Star Theater if my memory serves me right. There was Naked City, Hawaii Five-0, Kojak, The Jackie Gleason Show and I Love Lucy among so many others. We had so much variety and laughter and plain old enjoyment. Almost no frills, yet entertaining. What are some of your favorite memories? How far back do you remember?

    I’ve never seen it but Naked City sounds like fun.

    Did you ever view Peyton Place, Dr. Kildare, Ben Casey,MD,The Twilight Zone? Starsky and Hutch were a good team as well as Peter Falk as Colombo (his famous raincoat) and the all infamous Dallas. My favorite was Tom Jones one hour show on Friday evening. He was the sexpot of the 70’s to alot of us women.
