I know it's probably impossible but would love to see MeTV broadcast a different lineup of shows each night in primetime. So like on Monday, a lineup of Lucy, Family Affair, Andy Griffith , Rookies... Friday, Brady Bunch, Partridge Famil, Room 222.... shows made famous on each particular night.

1961-64 best period. The Fugitive was the best drama series ever. Andy Griffith because of Barney Fife the best comedy. Always liked the Mickey Mouse Club, Little Rascals and Three Stooges after school.

1970 which is ok with me. Some of these were hard to pick for various reasons. Any list with Laverne & Shirley or Welcome Back Kotter were automatically disqualified. I can't stand those shows.

1978 but none of those lineups were exactly like the quiz where I lived. So I picked the ones that had the most of my fav

1974 - I was 8-years-old and sadly, TV probably was at it's best then. Looking at what's on currently I can truly say it hasn't gotten better since then. Loved the 70s detective shows the best.

I got 1975.
There were so many of these with shows in multiple groups per question that I really liked matched with others I either didn't like or never heard of, so I didn't know which to pick.
