    Andy Griffith is my all-time fave. I liked Hogan's Heros, too.

    I Love Lucy still makes me laugh. That's not on the list, either, Saggy. Could you add that, as well?

    I voted for 'Andy Griffith' and 'Other' on this poll.

    My 'Other' choices would include: (which are not listed as choices on any of the three Television show polls): but are not limited to: 'Father Knows Best' (1954-60) and (to some extent) 'Leave It To Beaver' (1957-63).

    While I'm too young to remember the original run of either of these shows (I was born in 1957) I can remember being in the second or third grade in 1965 and watching early morning reruns of 'Beaver'. I also saw tons of reruns of both shows as a kid growing up in the 60's/70's.

    About the only sitcoms from the 1950's that are even shown any more are 'Lucy' and 'Beaver'. 'Father Knows Best' hasn't been broadcast anywhere for 4 or 5 years now. I guess its too politically incorrect to show now.

    I can remember browsing through a book years ago about the history of TV. The decade of the 1940's on TV was described as The Vaudevile Era (think of Milton Berle); the 1950's was the Westerns era; the 1960's was the era of 'the silly sitcom'. I don't remember what they called the decade of the 1970's but I think it reflected social change and upheaval that happened during that decade (All In The Family, Maude, many shows with all African-American casts.) By the end of the 1970's people had seen enough reality, and fantasy and escapist shows started to become popular (such as The Love Boat, Fantasy Island and Dallas.)
