The Monkees

Sundays at 5 PM & 5:30 PM

eastern (on most MeTV stations)
Hey, hey, they're The Monkees! Davy, Micky, Michael and Peter are four fellows looking to make it big as a rock 'n' roll band in this delightfully surreal, pioneering sitcom. Of course, in reality, the "Prefab Four" had no such struggles, as the Monkees became one of the biggest musical acts of the 1960s. Their television series won the Emmy Award for Best Comedy Series in 1967 and another Emmy for comedy writing. The musical numbers on the show helped send songs like "Last Train to Clarksville" and "I'm a Believer" to the top of the charts. Those tunes and many more can be heard in this rocking, timeless comedy.
