scary... both networks suffered their suckiest years ever IMO
On N@N I like Roseanne and Murphy Brown, and on TV Land I like Happy Days and Three's Company, but all in all, both networks have gotten so homogenized, I miss actual variety on the networks. I miss N@N having 10 shows in their roster, as opposed to 6, two of which are only shown in the dead of night

I agree with you. It seems like the more I dislike those two channels, the higher the ratings are for them.
And now they're planning on doing more and more and more original shows. I hate when they do original shows. I tune into TV Land and N@N for reruns. That's what those channels are supposed to be about. Classic TV of the PAST.
I WANT to like N@N and TV Land again, that's why I'm always so angry with them. Back in the day I LOVED those two networks. I used to boast about how I'd watch N@N and TV Land. Now, I just tell everyone that I avoid those channels in favor of my DVDS. Which is the truth.
Of course, I don't have a problem with "Good Times", "What's Happening!!" and "Night Court" coming. But I really don't watch any of them.
