    Here's my entries:

    Worst tv show of all time, My Mother the Car, with Jerry Van Dyke.

    Best show, Combat, with Vic Morrow. Vic never smiled once on that show. I just called my wife and told her about my Vic Morrow comment and she said "he was fighting the Germans"!

    The best, and also the longest running, is easy...Gunsmoke.

    The worst? Take your pick of the unreality shows. Jerry Springer may be the second worst.

    For a sit-com I liked Soap.

    Twilight Zone was always a favorite.

    "The West Wing" was my favorite. Not for anything political but for top of the line performances and story.

    Some of these old shows seem so dated now. But, my wife and I have been watching "Encore Westerns" just about everyday and are seeing Gunsmoke all the way back to the first year. Gotta say it rates as being one of the best. This question can't truly be answered unless it's by genre.


    Speaking of Gunsmoke - watched it all those years, now watching reruns and in doing some searching on James Arness and Amanda Blake I find his limp is due to wounds suffered at Anzio and Amanda died of AIDS complications.

    The best actors of that time period showed up for guest appearances on Gunsmoke and Twilight Zone. Never missed an Ed Sullivan Show. Have Gun Will Travel was a well written show too. Seinfeld was pretty good.

    For the best....The Andy Griffith Show!!! Especially the ones with the Darlin Family. (The four musicians who never talked were really the bnluegrass band, The Dillards.

    For the worst.....The View, Ellen Degenerate, or any so called reality show. Take your pick. Jack

    You all bring up some great shows.

    2500 HD:
    You mentioned married with children. My cousin was selling shows when that show was on while he was attending college. On his last day he had an enormous woman come in wanting to return a pair of shoes. He said instead of feet she should of had hooves.

    He said she purchased the shoes way to small and they were ruined due to her weight. You guessed it, when he would not take the shoes back and she threanted legal action, he used Al Bunde's line, "is that the law firm of Hagen and Daz? He was fired.
