I love to hear about what I can't remember! What nights were the TV shows on?

Dragnet, Death Valley Days, Gunsmoke, Ed Sullivan, Ozzie and Harriot, Twilight Zone, Oh I can't remember the others! Jackie Gleason.......Lassie. Why was Lucy on everyday in my mind? Car 54? Oh the Lebanese guy? What was that called? Oh, I feel so old that I can't remember what was an everday thing when I was 10!

Every night had certain shows, what were they?


Oh my GOD! I forgot all those! Thank you! I can't remember Cobat what was that?

Oh, Skyking Saturday morning and Palidan was when?

    Dragnet - Friday

    Death Valley Days - Saturday ?

    Gunsmoke -Sunday

    Ed Sullivan -Sunday

    Ozzie and Harriet - Mon or Tues.

    Twilight Zone- Friday

    Jackie Gleason- Saturday

    Lassie- Sunday

    Car 54 - Thursday

    Danny Thomas is who your thinking of

    Re-reading the other poster is right. Car 54 was on Sunday .

    My Mother the Car was on Thursday.

    Its in your mind that Lucy was on everyday because the re-runs ran longer than the show did. The re runs were on every day.

    Well, Sunday night was the big night we all watched TV. If I remember correctly, it was Lassie, Ed Sullivan, G.E. Theatre on the Columbia Broadcast network (CBS). Over on the National (NBC) it was the Dinah Shore Chevy Showcase and The Loretta Young Show. On the American (ABC) it was Western night with Colt 45, Maverick, The Lawman, and maybe Rawhide.

    Then, early in the week we would sometimes watch Father Knows Best, The Danny Thomas Show, Ann Sothern Show on Monday nights. Dobbie Gillis, Red Skeleton and Garry Moore on Tuesday nights. I think Wagon Train and Ozzie & Harriet were mid-week. At the end of the week was the Donna Reed Show, Bachlor Father, Pat Boone, The Real McCoys, Walt Disney, and 77 Sunset Strip.

    I think there were some game shows like To Tell the Truth, You Bet Your Life, This is Your Life, and The Price is Right that came on during the evenings too that we watched.

    I'm forgetting the nights of other shows like Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Untouchables, Wyatt Earp, The Jack Benny Show, and Fibber McGee & Molly.

  • The show with the Lebanese guy was MASH. He was a character named Klinger. At first he thought he could avoid getting drafted by wearing women's clothes. However, we found out too many others had tried that.

    When Major Potter came he started wearing his fatigues, and dating a girl.

    In After Mash he married her and worked in the same place as Trapper John.

    I think it was on either Monday or Wednesday at 8:00 pm. If in doubt check the newspapers from that time period. The Sunday papers they even microfilmed the television section!

    Her name was Christine Cagney on Cagney and Lacy. There's also James Cagney. I don't think Cagney is good for a first name, the kids will make fun and call your child Gag-me.

    Some of the shows on radio stick in my mind....especially Sunday with Family Favourites and Billy Cotton(the smell of the Sunday roast still reminds me of them).

    I watched them all, but can't remember what night they were on, but- I think Dragnet was on every Friday night.

    Or maybe I'm just confused because of-- Joe Friday.
