Default Your Favorite 1950s Sitcoms

I will do a poll for each decade going on the boards SO has. I will also add shows like Jack Benny or others that do not have their own board that I can think of.

I have never seen Our Miss Brooks. Do you still get Antenna TV? Jack Benny airs in primetime Saturdays at 9:30PM between Father Knows Best and Burns and Allen. That slot probably won't last much longer though if they do Saturday summerthons again. Jack Benny is also weekdays early mornings, will move to the 5AM hour Monday.

Unfortunately Fort Wayne does not have a Decades affiliate. or Me-TV, Heroes and Icons, Buzzr, and so many of the good retronets. At least we got Antenna TV back now.

I Love Lucy and Leave it to Beaver favorites. And I also voted for and like Bachelor Father, Ozzie & Harriet and Make room for Daddy!

Some of these shows I have never seen and would really like to though, like Love that Bob.

I would like to see Life of Riley--particularly several episodes which were originally broadcast in color, which was almost unheard of in the 50s.

The only one I voted for is Leave It to Beaver. It's my second-most favorite sitcom of all times! It has so many great characters and great lines.

Very close race for 1st place between I Love Lucy and Leave it to Beaver, both tied with 9 out of 10 votes so far. Burns and Allen is a distant 3rd with 5, and a few shows are tied with 4. Of course Lucy and Beaver would be more familiar to younger fans having usually aired somewhere, while some of the other 50s sitcoms have disappeared more. A lot of these I have never seen, am most interested in December Bride having liked Harry Morgan in M*A*S*H and Dragnet. Maybe OH Nuts would know why, it is sad that Ozzie and Harriet is the longest running live action sitcom in history but rarely airs anywhere.

I like most of the shows on the list. I only voted for the ones that I've seen quite a bit of episodes of. I'd probably put I Love Lucy first with Leave it to Beaver close behind.

The Ann Sothern Show

Our Miss Brooks
I Love Lucy
Leave it to Beaver

It wasn't on the list but my #1 pick for this decade is How to Marry a Millionaire.
