Default Wasn't this a 40's show?

shouldn't it be in the 1940s section?

If you look around, you'll notice that all the shows on the site are listed within the decade that the majority of their run took place. Diff'rent Strokes, for example, began in 1978 but is listed in the 80s section because over six years of its run was in the 80s.

Another good reason (surprise, surprise): there is no 40s section. What would go in one other than Mary Kay & Johnny and The Growing Paynes anyway?--and even then what is there to say about them?

Default Actually...

"THE GOLDBERGS" were on the air as early as 1929, on NBC radio {"THE RISE OF THE GOLDBERGS"**, with creator/writer/star Gertrude Berg and a slightly different cast. Then, it became a daytime drama (with some comedic interludes)- sometimes sounding more like a soap opera [it was sponsored by Procter & Gamble during most of that period]- until 1945. Then, Mrs. Berg revived it as a half-hour show on radio for CBS (and sponsor General Foods) in 1949, and produced a TV edition with the same cast. She discontinued the radio show in 1950 to concentrate exclusively on television.

As much as I would like to see a 40s section, I don't think it's absolutely needed. Afterall, about the earliest sitcoms didn't happen until 1948 (the Life of Riley).

It's absolutely not needed. What television sitcom had the bulk of its run take place in the 40s? I named two above, although if you adhere strictly to SO convention whereby only shows which lasted more than one season get their own subsection, then your 40s section would consist of exactly one show. Can you think of another?

I agree with the above poster. It did indeed start earlier as radio in the twenties. But I tend to think of the tv show of the 1950's .

The Growing Paynes
- Whoa! So is the 1980s "Growing Pains" show is based on the 1940s show "The Growing Paynes"?
And the new 2013 sitcom "The Goldbergs"- is this based on the 1940s sitcom "The Goldbergs"?
