  1. I Love Lucy, The Twilight Zone, Mission: Impossible, Star Trek, The Brady Bunch, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Muppet Show, Monty Python, early SNL, The Facts of Life, Kate & Allie, The Golden Girls, MST3K, Friends, Will & Grace, The Simpsons, Six Feet Under, Mad Men, CBS Sunday Morning. For current shows I’m really liking The Orville (better than all of the Star Trek reboots).
