I haven't been anywhere near wpix for many many years but I will be watching
the DVD on Thanksgiving as I do every year.

WPIX got me into the habit when I was just a little kid.

I'm watching it now and this movie is actually quite funny. I've seen it
before though but now that I'm older this movie is great. WPIX has come a
long ways over the years. It was once an independent station and then Warner
Brothers brought them and then by the 2000's CW really ruined it. I remember
when the station used to show The Three Stooges on Thanksgiving. Also "Mary
Poppins."

Agreed. Now if only WOR 9 would start showing King Kong and Monster Movie
Marathons again.

They should because they don't have no original programs, just hours of
info-mercials on weekends. I have interned at WWOR and I tell you their archive
had tons of programs.

WOR is still a regional station right? I'd love to see what they have locked
up in their vaults. It is so disappointing that on Holidays like Thanksgiving
all they play is crap. It's literally crap. Every year I turn on WOR for a
moment and check their schedule for the day and it's always the most
unspectacular television listing imaginable. It is as if it is just another
day to the television programmers.


I have an original 198 WOR airing of King Kong (complete with commercials)that
I watch every year on Thanksgiving.

There isn't much going on at the WWOR from what I was told, especially
since the news department closed down operation in 2013. But when I was there,
I seen programs that dated back to around 1984 maybe a little bit farther back,
I wish I had the opportunity to have watched more footage, usually I just went
in there to find news footage. And a lot of those tapes were on BETA.

Since we are talking about WOR and WPIX, I want to post a list of all the shows
I watched in reruns on those 2 stations and channel 5 (forgot network letters)
growing up back in the 70's and 80's.

To keep the list manageable I will list only live action shows and no shows that
were originally aired on Saturday morning for kids. I may get some of the
channels mixed up but I watched all of these shows on those 3 channels.
So here we go;

WPIX - channel 11

star trek
the dick van dyke show
the odd couple
space 1999
father knows best
gomer pyle usmc
happy days
laverne and shirley
three's company
the munsters
i dream of jeannie
get smart
please don't eat the daisies
lassie
the twilight zone
the abbott and costello show
f-troop
pettycoat junction
mchale's navy
the adventures of superman
the lone ranger
kung fu
little house on the prairie
gentle ben
flipper
hazel
gidget
nanny and the professor
the mother's-in-law
family affair
the lucy show
EDIT
Emergency
Dragnet
Sanford and Son
Good Times
The Jefferson's
The Honeymooner's
The 3 Stooges

channel 5

the andy griffith show
make room for daddy
leave it to beaver
perry mason
lost in space
bewitched
the addams family
gilligan's island
the ghost and mrs. muir
the brady bunch
the partridge family
i love lucy
gunsmoke
batman
green acres
wonder woman
charlie's angels
mission impossible
the waltons
the alfred hitchcock hour
the rat patrol
buck rogers in the 25th century
the flying nun
carol burnett
the 6 million dollar man
the bionic woman
EDIT
Hogan's Heroes
The Monkees

(I can't believe I forgot those last 2 the first time)
EDIT
Adam 12
All in the Family
Barney Miller
Taxi
my 3 sons
the rifleman
the little rascals

WOR channel 9

daniel boone
voyage to the bottom of the sea
the beverly hillbillies
hawaii 5-0
bonanza
have gun will travel
wanted dead or alive
the wild wild west
the rockford files
the courtship of eddie's father
here's lucy
EDIT
The Benny Hill Show


I'm probably forgetting some. Anyway, these are the shows that created my
love of tv. Don't even get me started on the movies that these same channels
showed over and over. I can still remember the commercials.

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,

Family Matters
A Different World
Fresh Prince
Wonder Years
Doogie Howser, MD
Growing Pains
The Hogan Family
Full House

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.

I only knew of a lot of those a shows coming on WPIX, WWOR and WNEW because of
my father who talked a lot about the old days TV in NYC. He talked very fondly
of Chuck McCann and "Let's Have Fun," Officer Joe Bolton and The Three Stooges,
Soupy Sales and others who used to have programs on the network. Back in 2008,
they did a special celebrating 60 years of WPIX and it was decent but I can tell
they were missing a lot more shows.

Now, I know "Soul Train" came on WPIX but did it also come on WNEW?

I haven't lived in NYC for many years but up until 1958, I remember channel 5
as WABD and was strictly local with shows like Bugs Bunny Presents, a local
Rock n' Roll teenage dance show called Studio Parlor and a late night old movie
show "Rickey Tickey Playhouse". When it changed to WNEW in 1958, along came
Romper Room, the Sandy Becker Show, and Wonderama. Folks here probably never
heard of these programs they were happy memories of my childhood.

Those shows you mentioned were all shows my parents talked fondly about. Thank
goodness for YouTube because I can actually see what was so great about those
classic shows.

I can't believe they have stuff just lying in a vault and it is still on Beta!

I am a part of a website that preserves old television footage. The site has
thousands of old television shows and movies. A lot of them even include the
original commercials. I wish I could get into that vault and preserve what they
have. Sadly it is probably just rotting. Such a shame.
