I grew up as a kid when The Pink Panther was on tv and didn't watch it back then.

So many more better cartoon series to select from like The Smurfs, Yogi Bear, Casper The Friendly Ghost, Mighty Mouse, Scooby Doo, Mr Magoo just to name a few.

How does The Addams Family promote a new image? It's a baby boomer staple and fits right in on Me-TV.

Shows I would like to see added: Pee Wee's Playhouse, Jonny Quest, The Little Rascals

Would like back: The Wild Wild West, Batman (remastered)

1:00 Gunsmoke
2:00 Bonanza
3:00 Rifleman or Wagon Train
4:00 Dallas
Keep the Rifleman. It's the only one where I like a few of them (it's all about me!)

The Wild Wild West is on Screenpix Westerns if you have Xfinity.

Strictly broadcast these days.

I would keep The Flintstones and add The Addams Family at 6:30 as Happy Days is about to go into the bad seasons cycle by May.

Time for The Rifleman to go. They could pay for airing Gunsmoke so long and in the same spots by airing the 30-minute episode versions titled Marshall Dillon and Bonanza by airing the lost episodes if they arenít doing so right now. If they canít get rid of the Weekday Westerns entirely Iíd like to see Wagon Train move up to The Riflemanís 2:00 timeslot and Remington Steele returning, replacing Wagon Trianís previous 3:00 timeslot.

Gunsmoke will probably cycle back to the start (30min episodes)in October or November. They are two episodes from season 13 right now.

I knew someone would defend pink panther, accolades don't mean anything if I don't care for it. I generally don't care much for cartoons with silent leads, Tom and Jerry being an exception but even then in limited doses. Maybe they're trying to squeeze out the betty boop a from popeye. To each their own.


I would schedule mornings:
6:00 Saved By The Bell (e/I)
6:30 Flintstones
7:00 Toon In With Me

Sundays
8:00 Flintstones
8:30 Yogi Bear
9:00 Flintstones
9:30 Top Cat
10:00 Flintstones
10:30 Jetsons
11:00 New Scooby-doo Movies

0

It has been years since we have gotten less than 4 hours of Weekday Rope Opera. If any show needs to taken off, it should be Wagon Train. I understand Gunsmoke and Bonanza are time-honored classics and bring the big ratings for the channel. The Rifleman has been on MeTV since it's inception, so I dont see that show leaving either.

1:00 - Gunsmoke
2:00 - Bonanza
3:00 - The Rifleman
3:30 - Dragnet (take it off the 6-am timeslot to air something else)
4:00 - Police Story, Police Woman, The FBI, Hawaii Five-O, The Mod Squad etc..
5:00 - Adam-12

MeTV use to have 4 - 7pm being the block where they air action/drama/detective shows. Now we only have one hour of that genre with Adam-12. It's time make room of it again.

I'm glad they're not doing the early morning pre-emptions like last year.

Appears that Mama's Family on Sunday will be the only show pre-empted by this event. I wonder if Svengoolie will show The Ghost And Mr Chicken as part of the event?

Between this, the Bugs Bunny event and 2 new show addditions, looks like METV is preparing for a very busy May.
