Default If the 60s version of the JGS were shown in reruns...

In 2007, MrBand wrote this:

"When TV Land launched the Honeymooners in 2000 and ran the 1965 Adoption show, I sent an impassioned email congratulating them and practically begging for the American Scene Magazine and the Color Honeymooners. I even suggested they try running them Saturday nights at 8 for nostalgia's sake, just as they used to show Ed Sullivan Sunday evenings.

"I figured if they were going to the trouble of buying the original kitchen set and hiring Art Carney to make new promos that it couldn't hurt.

"Unfortunately, it didn't help, either.

"As those of us who love this material grow older and become part of the demographic that advertisers mistakenly believe spend no money, the chances of having this material released commercially continue to diminish. More's the pity."

Now if the network did show the 60s version of the JGS, what do you think it would be like? Would it be random clips attached together to form an hour long show like the network showed Ed Sullivan (complete with newly created commercial bumpers, closing credits etc.)? Would we get any 15 minute Honeymooners sketches? Would they show complete shows?

Just some food for thought.

Tv would be edited. People edit now just b/c they can. The Adoption show mentioned above had edits on TVLand. Then there's rights, time limits, logos, ad space..

Streaming would be an option. Release a year or two at a time. Subscription site might cover rights costs, ease sync rights/blanket policies, reduce cost by eliminating physical media.

That said, I continue to retain several grand in an emergency fund, should some company decide to release the Gleason Show/American Scene completely on video. I would drop mega $$ to be able to screen complete episodes (bootleg or otherwise) on weekends.

These shows make me nostalgic for a time that I wasn't even around for. Is there a word for that?

I've seen 1/2 hour versions of The Jackie Gleason Show on independent stations, same as Ed Sullivan's syndication, so TV Land could've shown 1/2 hours back-to-back as it did for Sullivan.
