Default For those of you who get Antenna TV, what shows would you like to see them acquire?

Here's my list:
Cheers
Chico and the Man
Dharma & Greg
Frasier
It's a Living
Mad About You
NewsRadio
Perfect Strangers

NewsRadio
Just Shoot Me!
Stark Raving Mad
It's Garry Shandling's Show
Taxi
The Odd Couple
That's My Mama
Bachelor Father
The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis
The Dick Van Dyke Show
The Bob Cummings Show
How to Marry a Millionaire
Private Secretary

These are shows I'm unsure if they have a chance of Antenna:
SCTV
The Kids in the Hall
The State
The Larry Sanders Show

First three because they're all sketch comedy shows and The State has some bizarre, surreal humor. The Larry Sanders Show because of explicit language.

Garry Shandling/Larry Sanders would make a good lead-in to Carson.

First thing, while sitcoms should primarily remain their focus, Antenna shouldn't keep dramas out totally. I miss the great ones they used to air like Adam-12, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and Dragnet '67. But all westerns should remain on other networks and not come to Antenna. Movies also should not be brought back on a regular basis, although movies of TV shows such as the Growing Pains movies and The Brady Girls Get Married would be fine. It can remain a classic TV network for several decades with good 50s-90s shows, but no 2000s and 2010s era shows. (Becker needs to leave and go to a network that airs newer shows.)

Shows Antenna has aired in the past I would like to see come back
the dramas mentioned above
Bachelor Father
Mr. Belvedere
The Patty Duke Show
Newhart
Mad About You- this aired on Antenna before I ever had an affiliate.
WKRP in Cincinnati
Diff'rent Strokes
The Addams Family- odd that they didn't keep this one long
Leave it to Beaver
Too Close for Comfort
Green Acres

Shows that would be great pickups and new to Antenna- I know some of these may be under contract to rival networks (many of the good retronets not available in Fort Wayne), so snatch them up when those contracts expire.
Family Affair
The Munsters
Angie
Fawlty Towers- just 12 episodes so might not be on regular schedule but a complete series marathon would be awesome.
Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em- the actual show might not be known to American audiences but they might know Michael Crawford through his singing.
Frasier
Cheers
C.P.O. Sharkey
The Dick Van Dyke Show
The Mary Tyler Moore Show
Lou Grant
The Love Boat
December Bride
Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.
The Alfred Hitchcock Hour
black and white Dragnet
Route 66
The Wonder Years
The Courtship of Eddie's Father
Fame
Early Edition
What a Country! would be another good complete series marathon show.
Boy Meets World
Petticoat Junction
The Beverly Hillbillies
The Real McCoys
Our Miss Brooks
Julia
That Girl
Happy Days
Laverne and Shirley
Highway to Heaven
The Facts of Life- if Saved by the Bell is considered an E/I show this surely should be as well along with Head of the Class. They probably aren't though.
Room 222
The Bob Newhart Show
George and Leo
Hello, Larry
The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour (and I Love Lucy but the hour shows haven't aired elsewhere nearly as much.)
The Lucy Show
Taxi- I liked the 2 episodes I have seen of it. Would pair well with Barney Miller
The Twilight Zone (original black and white half hour)
Johnny Staccato
Ozzie and Harriet
Remington Steele
Quantum Leap
Blossom
ALF
Charlie's Angels (1976-1981)
Charles in Charge
BJ and the Bear
My Three Sons
The Fitzpatricks
The Waltons
Who's the Boss?
Homefront
either Blondie TV show plus the movie
The Headmaster
Get Smart
I'm Dickens, He's Fenster
The Ghost and Mrs. Muir
Please Don't Eat the Daisies
Nanny and the Professor
The Rockford Files
Columbo
Johnny Carson episodes that Jay Leno guest hosted and Jay's 90s Tonight Shows
Perfect Strangers
Fish- could air with Barney Miller in the rotation like The Ropers and Three's a Crowd have with Three's Company.
Tabitha- same thing with Bewitched
Getting Together- Bobby Sherman spin-off of The Partridge Family
Harper Valley PTA
The Danny Thomas Show
Fantasy Island
9 to 5 TV show
Hawaii Five-O (1968-1980)
The F.B.I. (1965-1974)
The Millionaire (1955-1960)
Many Loves of Dobie Gillis
The Donna Reed Show
My Favorite Martian
Gilligan's Island
The Jim Nabors Hour

Obviously they won't get all these shows at once, but if they did they could have a different schedule every week for a few months or years.

Antenna is a comedy-only network, so dramas airing on Antenna would be unrealistic.

I would like to see some more short lived sitcoms from the 60's and 70's, shows that ran only one or two seasons. One sitcom from the 60's I'd like to see is Hey Landlord. One from the 70's that I'd like to see is Temperatures Rising. There are also some 60's and 70's sitcoms I'd like to see that ran less than a full season, but I won't list those because I doubt that Antenna TV or any other station would bother or take a chance airing them.

But they didn't start out as comedy only. That can still be changed back.

I definitely agree with the suggestions of WKRP in Cincinnati and Family Affair.

It could change, though very unlikely. All the dramas Antenna aired are now on Cozi TV, Decades, and Me-TV.

I don't get Antenna TV but I would love to see "Tammy" and "Murder, She Wrote" added to MeTV.

Basically any '60s-'90s shows that haven't seen the light of day or rarely ever are on TV since the turn of the 21st century and can't be found on DVD. I'll admit, most of these I haven't seen, but having been DYING to see since I've heard about them.
