12:30 PMFamily Affair 
A sweet-natured (and very 1960s) sitcom about a carefree bachelor raising his nephew and two nieces, with the reluctant help of his natty English butler, after the children's parents are killed in a car accident.
1:00 PMPetticoat Junction 
A widow and her three daughters (and Uncle Joe, who's a-movin' kinda slow) run the Shady Rest Hotel in Hooterville, whose clientele consists mainly of passengers on the spur line of an almost-defunct railroad.

2:00 PMThe Mary Tyler Moore Show 
One of the medium's most beloved, sharply written and performed sitcoms, about the newswoman who could turn the world on with her smile. A winner of nearly 30 Emmys over its seven years, it consistently produced witty, sophisticated episodes, including the celebrated `Chuckles Bites the Dust,' which was No. 1 in TV Guide's ranking of the `100 Greatest Episodes of All Time.' Members of the extraordinary ensemble cast moved on to three spin-off series: `Lou Grant,' `Phyllis' and `Rhoda.'

3:00 PMThe Bob Newhart Show 
Newhart had his first sitcom success as Chicago psychologist Bob Hartley in this ensemble gem of the 1970s. Complicating life for the serene, stammering doc and his wise wife, Emily, were their neighbor, Howard, a flighty navigator; and Bob's coworkers, dentist Jerry and flippant receptionist Carol. The humor was gentle, sophisticated and, at times, wonderfully surreal. `We were selling class and charm and wit,' series cocreator David Davis said. And for six years, viewers were happily buying.

4:00 PMNewhart 
The comedian brings his trademark gentle humor to his role as a Vermont innkeeper in this affable, long-running series, which premiered four years after his six-year stint with 'The Bob Newhart Show.'The eccentric supporting characters include a dim-witted handyman; a pretentious debutante maid; and three backwoods brothers named Larry, Darryl and Darryl (the Darryls never spoke). The final episode, in which a Japanese businessman buys the town, has a classic surprise ending.

5:00 PMThe Jeffersons 
The popular 'All in the Family' spin-off about a couple movin' on up from the Bunkers' modest Queens neighborhood to Manhattan's ritzy East Side. Paterfamilias George Jefferson was a bigoted, buffoonish mirror image of Archie Bunker, but had the money (from his dry-cleaning business) to back up his bluster. A ratings winner, 'The Jeffersons' spawned a spin-off, 1981's 'Checking In,' featuring sassy maid Florence (Marla Gibbs). It lasted just four weeks, and Florence returned to her old job.

7:00 PMRowan & Martin's Laugh-In 
An Emmy-winning rapid-fire potpourri of sight gags, blackouts and one-liners that, and you could look it up in your Funk and Wagnalls, was one of the hottest and most influential shows of its era. `Sock it to me?' presidential candidate Richard M. Nixon uttered in 1968 in one of countless celebrity cameos woven into creator George Schlatter's collage of irreverent political satire and social commentary, which made stars of regulars including Lily Tomlin, Goldie Hawn, Judy Carne and Ruth Buzzi.
8:00 PMThrough the Decades 
The 1950s through the 1990s are explored through pop culture stories and major world events.
9:00 PMThe Dick Cavett Show 
The erudite Cavett hosted a number of talk shows over the years that were popular with critics but never built a large audience (by Leno-Letterman standards). A writer for Jack Paar's `Tonight Show' in the early '60s and host of his own late-night series by the decade's end, Cavett was alternately praised and chided for his innovative one-guest approach. His wide range of provocative interview subjects included Katharine Hepburn, Orson Welles, Woody Allen, Norman Mailer and Jimi Hendrix.

10:00 PMThe Dick Van Dyke Show 
An often copied, rarely duplicated classic about TV writer Rob Petrie at home and work is as close as it gets to sitcom perfection. Sharply written, warmly acted by a brilliant ensemble cast and often sublimely funny, this brainchild of sitcom veteran Carl Reiner (who honed his comic skills working nine years with Sid Caesar) won many Emmys and, though it ran for only five seasons, has remained one of the medium's most enduring series.

11:00 PMThe Lost Honeymooners 
11:30 PMAbbott and Costello 
The team's antics drive this sitcom featuring classic skits and slapstick. Critics weren't wowed by the show's 52 episodes, but audiences were, and the series has thrived in syndication for more than 50 years. In the late '60s, an animated version of the series featuring Bud's voice (Lou had died in 1959) was produced.
12:00 AMDark Shadows 
Ghosts, witches and werewolves populated this creepy daytime serial about Maine's Collins family, which included Barnabas, a nearly 200-year-old vampire who longed to be cured. The supernatural soap shifted between the present and the 18th century to tell its gothic tale. A prime-time revival mounted in 1991 possessed more special effects, sex and gore than its bare-bones original, but it never caught on and was buried by NBC in less than two months.
12:30 AMThe Mod Squad 
Troubled young adults became hippie undercover cops in this popular drama. The trio comprised a monied longhair from Beverly Hills, an Afroed son of Watts and the comely daughter of a San Francisco hooker, who were recruited by a police captain for the covert unit. Series creator Bud Ruskin, a former LAPD cop, based the show on his experiences working with a special youth squad in the 1950s. The cast reunited for a TV-movie in 1979; 20 years later, a big-screen remake flopped.
