I was born in the late 1980's but I remember when WPIX was still WPIX 11, and the only shows from that list they still showed when I was young were "Star Trek" 1966-69, which came on every 4th of July, "Twilight Zone" which came on, on New Years and later "The Honeymooners", "Batman" and "Happy Days" which still came on in the afternoon time. It was WPIX where I discovered these shows and my parents had cable before I was even born! My guess is the reason they still aired on those channels even after Nick @ Nite was in full force was because they had very high ratings.
In the 1990's the sitcoms that were in syndication but still making episodes that came on WPIX were shows like,
A Different World
Doogie Howser, MD
The Hogan Family
WNYW which was formerly WNEW up until 1986 was when I discovered "All in the Family" they showed it on weekends during the 1990's. My guess was only Saturday's since football was on, on Sunday's. I even have a few old tapes that have footage from WNEW from around 1986, and a Three Stooges marathon from Thanksgiving 1987 from WPIX.
Hey, who on here remembers "Chiller Theater" on Saturday nights?

Cool. I see they updated their playlists after I moved away.
Also I can't believe I forgot about My 3 Sons, The Honeymooners, the 3 Stooges, The Little Rascals and The Rifleman. I'm going to edit my list again.
