I was lucky to be able to buy several seasons of Dallas at Big Lots stores for $5 each in recent years, along with Season 1 of Charles in Charge.

Your tastes seem to be similar to mine -- I remember always looking forward to Mama's Family on Saturday evenings back when it first ran.

I'm actually not surprised that Murphy Brown among those shows you listed isn't being syndicated a whole lot these days. Even though it was one of the most acclaimed and longest running sitcoms during the late '80s and on through the '90s, it has also aged extremely badly. It's a perfect example of why TV shows shouldn't be heavily typical/political, stuff like that is hard to translate as well long after it's time frame.

yea, I read somewhere back in the 80s that's why they've hardly ever done well in syndication.

ROWAN & MARTINS LAUGH-IN




YEARS ago Nick at Nite used to show edited, half hour episodes but as far as I know no one has shown it since then. It's not even on DVD

Yes I read that continuing drama type show don't do as well as self contained episodes. I find it is best to watch the continuing drama shows when first aired.

You know just yesterday I was wondering what's happened to the Kristy McNichol series "Empty Nest" with Richard Mulligan and "Family" which earned her an Emmy award.I just saw James Borderick,her "Family" dad as a detective in the classic action flick "Dog Day Afternoon".

I was a faithful viewer of Empty Nest. That would be a good choice for people today, it was pretty well written.

I haven't seen Silver Spoons in ages. I think Nick@Nite had it for a while, but not very long.

I'd also like to see the Drew Carey Show again. Seems that one just sort of vanished a few years after it ended it's original run.

They need to put "Hang Time" series back in syndication because of many probabilities.

I think a huge part of the problem w/ a show like Laugh-In is its heavily dated nature (it's too much of a product of the 1960s to really translate well today).

Well, for me, one of those shows is The Cosby show. The Cosby Show was in syndication years ago, but I haven't seen the Cosby Show in years.
It's been on TBS and PeachTree for 20 years, just like Fraser. Please end it!
