Confessions of a TV LAND watcher

The classic TV shows
on TV LAND channel
make many new shows look like
some bland-colored flannel.

From The Addams Family then
to All in the Family,
to The Andy Griffith Show
and The Beverly Hillbillies.

From The Bob Newhart Show
to The Brady Bunch,
then Bonanza and Cheers
and Designing Women pack a punch.

Good Times are had
and Green Acres glows,
but little Gunsmoke is seen
on Hogan's Heroes.

I Love Lucy too
and have Jeffersons fever.
Just Shoot Me if I like
Leave it to Beaver.

Little House on the Prairie
can make you feel blue,
but M*A*S*H on the other hand:
I'm Mad About You.

The Munsters may be no
Murphy Brown or Night Court
while Sanford and Son manage
a junkyard - after a sort.

Scrubs*, Star Trek, Three's Company
finish the lineup
but Mr. Ed I would hope
the next to signup.

* not really "classic"
