Television Classics On ‘Round The Clock

One of the benefits to the glut of television programming available over the past two decades is how it pushed really good shows into daytime viewing.

Or anytime viewing.

Programs like Law & Order, Everybody Loves Raymond, Home Improvement and The Cosby Show are on during late morning or afternoon hours almost all the time.

Not too long ago you would look forward to watching these shows all week long, then have a sense of satisfaction when that time slot finally cashed in.


In other words, it was FINALLY time for your favorite show.

Not any more, that’s for sure.

Perhaps the advent of the VCR then DVR watered things down a bit for TV programming, but that would be a whole ‘nother blog.

Perhaps Nick-At-Night may be the biggest reason TV classics are on all hours of the day now.

All in the Family or Roseanne may not be your idea of a great show.

But they are still on all hours of the day if you “need” them…
