Happy Days
Weeknights 6:30PM | 5:30C
Sundays 2PM | 1C and 4PM | 3C — Two full hours!

Making its debut on January 15, 1974, Happy Days was part of a wave of late-'50s, early-'60s nostalgia in the Seventies that also included the blockbuster film American Graffiti and the retro music of Sha Na Na. Who better to headline the sitcom than Ron Howard, star of American Graffiti and genuine child star of 1960? Shot on film with one camera, the early seasons of Happy Days might look quite different from the traditional sitcom you are used to. It looked a good deal different — and not just because Fonzie wore a windbreaker. Over its 11 seasons, the series shifted tones and introduced new characters such as Chachi, Jenny Piccolo and Roger.

Laverne & Shirley
Sundays 3PM | 2C - One full hour!

One of the most successful spinoffs in television history, Laverne & Shirley began as characters on Happy Days. Naturally, we had to pair them! The two brewery workers teamed with Lenny and Squiggy for high jinks in Milwaukee. Pour a glass of Pepsi milk and grab your Boo Boo Kitty. And perhaps discover the true meaning of, "Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!"


The Everett Collection

Mama's Family
Sundays 5PM | 4C  - One full hour!

Another hit spinoff, Mama's Family centered around sketch-comedy characters introduced on The Carol Burnett Show. Vicki Lawrence donned her gray wig and floral muumuu to play the feisty Thelma Harper. Be sure to watch from the beginning, as Betty White and Rue McClanahan played a key part as members of Mama's Family in season one.

There's more!

The Powers of Matthew Star flies into Sunday mornings at 6AM | 5C. Peter Barton starred alongside Lou Gossett, Jr., in this 1982 superhero series. Barton had edged Tom Cruise for the lead role, an alien prince hiding out in high school on earth. Elsewhere, the rarely aired one-hour episodes of The Twilight Zone from season four (1963) arrive to chill you in summer nights every Sunday at 12AM | 11C.

I can appreciate the need to rotate shows while providing a wide variety of genres. That said, here's my list of must have shows that are long overdue (most absent for 2 yrs or so):
-Wild Wild West
-Hawaii Five-O (2 yrs)
-Get Smart
-Odd Couple
-I Spy (never been on MeTV)
-Man from Uncle
-SCTV (underrated show, great for Sat night)
-Your show of Shows (one of best ever!)

C'mon MeTV, let's do it!

BTW, we don't get Cozi, Antenna, Get TV and other nostalgia channels in our area, so MeTV is my only hope.

I love MeTV, but so disappointed by their constant rehashing of the same old shows.
There are so many others to choose from. Why the same old things? I could have watched some of these shows on another channel.

Can you move some of your sci-fi Saturday night shows to an earlier time. There's a million places to watch Star Trek but I can only see The Time Tunnel, Land of the Giants, and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea on MeTV but I can't stay up until 3 in the morning to watch them. Also, I have to watch MeTV on my antennae and I don't have DVR hooked up to it. MeTV is my favorite.

How about some of the great old Saturday 70s morning cartoons Jackson 5s and the Globetrotters
VaughnBaskin barblocke23 4 months ago
Uh i think that MeTV should bring every Sid and Marty Krofft shows for their Saturday Morning lineup and bring every Hanna-Barbera cartoons for their Sunday Morning lineup.

Addams Family would be great. Or Magnum PI. A-Team, or the Incredible Hulk. All great shows. Laverne and Shirley is a nice addition. I’ve always crushed on Shirley. ❤️

Hello everyone, I'm really enjoying MeTv eventhough I just found it and haven't been watching for too long. Some of the shows that are my favorite that I would like to see on the schedule would be Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanine, the Munstets, the Adam's Family and Ma and Pa Kettle. I am happy they added Happy Days and Lavern and Shirley, I love those too. Keep up the good work Metv enjoy watching very much. Thank you everyone I hope this channel brings smiles to everyone.

Thanks for using my #BringBackTheMonkees! I didn’t think anyone would notice it (let alone actually using) so anyway thanks, every little bit helps to show MeTV that people still want to see the monkees.

I think they keep bringing "Mama`s Family" back because no other station wants it.

I know Mama's Family was on MeTV before. I remember a Mama's Family marathon was on after the death of Ken Berry (Vinton)
