Question Entertainment Forms that Died Out/Nearly Died Out

What are some entertainment forms that didn't have a resurgence and instead simply died out? Or at least fell so considerably in status that they may as well be considered dead in comparison to their past glory.

Westerns and Variety shows like The Carol Burnett Show.That's ok though because I'm afraid the Westerns would be too "Moderized" and variety shows would be raunchy. At least we still have the old shows on dvd!

that's true; I never though of that. I was wishing that both formats would come back but now I'm not.

rural sitcoms; but again that's okay because they'd fashion them for modern audiences by having a lot of sex jokes, double entandres, etc.

for example; with a "GREEN ACRES" remake
in one scene they'd have Mr. Douglas call Arnold a "little porker" and Lisa would say "Olivah, don't call him that. He's got a little porker but he isn't one!"

The kind of family sitcoms from the 80s or 90s, which weren't too raunchy or too childish. You know the ones like "Family Ties", "The Cosby Show", "Alf", "Full House", "Family Matters", "Step by Step" and "Sister, Sister". They don't seem to have existed anymore after the year 2000.

TV: Variety shows, westerns, anthologies, Christmas specials, sketch comedy, Saturday morning cartoons, local programming (i.e. kids shows, cooking, sports, etc)

Other: Malls, carnivals, vinyl records, 8 tracks, audio cassettes, video cassettes, riding bikes (ever see kids do this anymore?), board games, parades (they have them, but they are weak).

And yes, I miss them all.

Vinyl records are still around and bands are still releasing music on them.

Agreed, but I would certainly say they fall into the category of "nearly died out". Compared to say, 35 years ago, they've fallen significantly.

they tried a couple of rural sitcoms in the 90s/2000s oone qas the simple life with judith light in the summer of 98 and the other was kristen with kristen cheenowith and having watched both of then i can tell you firsthand that they both really stunk in fact kristen is about the worst sitcom that i have ever watched imho

Oh No

The only Sketch/Variety Show that was a success after the 70's was "Chappelle's Show", but once Dave Chappelle left Comedy Central...it didn't get a great revamp...
