    What are some old TV shows that you don't see a lot on reruns and never hear people talk much about, but you remember them well? Like:

    Love American Style
    Petticoat Junction

    Mr. Belvedere
    Charles in Charles
    Life Goes On
    The Greatest American Hero
    My Two Dads
    Silver Spoons
    The Wonder Years
    Chips

    All the old dating game shows from the 90s mainly:

    Buzz
    Love Connection
    Shipmates
    Singled Out
    etc.

    When I was a kid I loved this tv show that had this ghost of an actress who lived in the attic of a house and only one person could see/talk to her (the new owner of the house I think). I can't remember the name of it but I used to watch it all the time but have not seen a rerun ever!

    Remember TGIF? Four shows on Friday nights. They changed after a while, but to begin it was Full House, Family Matters, Perfect Strangers, and Just the Ten of Us.

    I also liked Blossom, Doogie Howser, MD, and Head of the Class

    Oh I forgot about Dinosaurs! I remember coming home after school and watching Good Times and thinking it was the best new show ever. It was about fifteen years old by that time!

    Oh, I loved TGIF. I really liked Boy Meets World, mainly because I wanted to be Topanga. :)

    ALF made me think of Small Wonder, which many people I ask don't recall. Loved that as well!

    I remember Small Wonder. :D

    Talking about these old shows is bringing up old memories that I totally forgot.

    I LOVED watching the old Disney cartoons, Donald Duck, Micky Mouse, etc. I HATE the new ones on that Mickey's Clubhouse show. Bleh!

    Well I remember these Daisy! We watch Gunsmoke and Pallidon often. Remember the Ed Sullivin Show? I remember the first time The Beatles were on and my dad just laughing away when they sang, "I Wanna Hold Your Hand!"

    Grammy Teacher and Upsadaisy, you must be part of my generation! I remember all those shows. I remember going home for lunch when I was in early elementary, and I watched Soupy Sales while I ate.

    Grammy, did you go to the theater to see 'A Hard Day's Night'? I remember that I couldn't hear the movie at all due to all the other girl's screaming! Good times, LOL.

    When I grew up, I enjoyed Hill Street Blues, St. Elsewhere, and Dallas, as well as all the comedies already mentioned.
