TV Land To Develop New Original Comedy Series

Buzz In: What is Your Favorite Old-School TV Show?

TV Land, home to classics like The Brady Bunch, Three's Company, and Bonanza, is branching out into original comedies. The network just announced that they're developing two scripted shows, titled Hot in Cleveland and Retired at 35. But will people actually flip to the channel to check out this new programming?

Personally, the older shows are the only reason I'd tune into TV Land. I used to be obsessed with I Love Lucy as a kid — I even had a Lucy calendar hanging up in my room. Thanks to Nick at Nite, I could watch it on a regular basis, along with Bewitched, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and Mary Tyler Moore. (I live for Rhoda!) Now, Nick at Nite plays mainly 90s favorites like Home Improvement and Family Matters, so TV Land has become my vintage channel of choice. Hopefully they won't go the way of MTV with music videos and make the older shows completely obsolete — that would just be sad.

Admittedly, I'm a bit of a dork when it comes to classic TV, but tell me, what is your favorite old-school show?

I like most of the ones mentioned in this post. The old cop shows were good too. I liked Chips, Swat, Kojak, Barney Miller, Beretta, Hawaii 5-O, Barnaby Jones, and etc..

M*A*S*H, Bewtiched, Gilligans Island, I Dream of Jeannie, Flipper, Laverne & Shirley, The Muppet Show, Charlie's Angels, Three's Company. Not sure if the 80's counts as old school, but I also loved: Bosom Buddies, The Facts of Life, The Golden Girls, Silver Spoons, The Love Boat, Fantasy Island, Mork & Mindy, The Greatest American Hero, Who's The Boss?, Dynasty, & Jem and the Holograms.

Rhoda!!!! I remember when they played Phyllis, Rhoda, and MTM on Nick at Nite when they finally switched from the 60's programming to 70's. It was amazing!! I was obsessed with Valerie Harper at 11-
