Unless you count re-runs of Dragnet and Adam-12 on MeTV (which I think
is available OTA).

I can still handle the occasional Adam-12, but for me Dragnet hasn't held
up well at all. Friday was way too stuffy and straight, while Gannon seemed
to just go along with everything without having his own opinions. I watched
it as a kid, but I can't watch it now.

Yes, it hasn't aged well. We don't watch every episode: the ones with
"hippies" are particularly painful. But it gives me a pleasant sense
of nostalgia, especially the notion that right always prevails.

Sort of like a much more recent show, one of the cast-pairs of Law &
Order, the actor with the Italian name (Vincent deNoffrio or something)
and his partner who never had an original idea. It was sort of amazing
considering lots of shows were being made for years by then where the
female had the lead, even earlier Law & Order.
Despite that I still like Dragnet radio shows on Sunday night, and afaik
would watch the tv shows too.

I watch Gunsmoke on Me. I also listen to Gunsmoke radio shows from
the 50's on Sunday night and 3 of the TV shows in the last 2 months have
had the exact same story as radio versions, even much of the dialog is
word-for-word the same.
Who has the middle of the days/mornings for watching TV, pray tell?
Which leads to the secondary of what do all these thugs in Portland,
etc., do for a living when they're not out vandalizing and looting and
I've been giggling over Lisa last month or two--never saw most of them
when were on originally.
Carol Burnett is better than the evening news about 90% of the time so
she's been getting her innings as well, hit 'n miss, when they're doing
nothing but obsessing over COVID on news (which is most of it, these
days). What am I supposed to do with that...nothing I can do about
Miami or Houston/Dallas...

I can relate to that. I think I fell asleep watching the Saturday night
horror movies, And there was no way to record them.
When I was little, I watched tv on my belly with my head resting on my
hands, my elbows on the floor. But my arms got too long. I really
missed that position for a long time.

I like the Rifleman, but what gets me is that no matter how old his kid
gets or as many times as he sees his father in trouble, he still doesn't
know what to do. He's a wimp. One time he threw his father the gun
instead of shooting the guy himself Wasted time, and what if he
didn't catch it.
Simpsons beats it now with 654 episodes. Gunsmoke 635 over 20 years.
The 5 Longest-Running TV Shows of All Time

Gunsmoke | CBS.
Law & Order | NBC.
South Park | Comedy Central.
Law & Order: SVU | NBC.
Not over the air but Live PD was a good show. It's been cancelled
due to the hysteria over George Floyd dying because of apparent police
It showed cops with car and body cams as they went about their
business. The patience those guys usually show is something to behold.
I wondered how much the cameras changed things though.
