I don't think I've actually made a schedule to watch regular TV unless it's football, or a game I have a bet on and I want to see it resolve. Even then, I use sunday ticket to watch out of market games. Rarely do I watch the game on local TV for Sunday morning and afternoons. Only on Sunday night, Monday night, and Thursday night if it's available on CBS.

NFL network is the worst. Can't use sunday ticket, and I usually just end up streaming the game on my laptop. TBH sunday ticket is a waste of money actually because if you know where to look you can get any game on HD.

The only non-sports show I watched was Shark Tank. Even then I watch less then 3 hours in a year.

I watched Netflix for 3 days straight because I used a friend's login to watch the Office, but other then that I don't use it.

These shows are snapshots of life in the
60's, it really did exist, I was there. It's a
time I can't even imagine now, but it
was there. The innocence of it, the
family values.



It all started going downhill about 1964. Society changed mostly for the worse.

Just as amazing I suppose is the divide among people who grew up in the 1970s vs the 1990s. Past couple years I have worked in places with that divide. Some of us in our 40s/50s vs the kids in their 20s/30s. But in this case it is us telling about the free-for-alll the 1970s were.

I think it's women's lib, about 1970,
that changed it all for the worse.
What a cluster pile that has been, it
gave us things like Hillary and her
enabling of her philandering husband,
which gave us the sexual mess we're
in now with celebrities and politicians.

By vilifying the women who came forward,
Hillary made it hard for victimized women
to speak, and gave tacit permission for
men to act like pigs. It's no accident that
Her losing the election opened this subject
up to the light of day.

1972 , or thereabouts, when All in the Family debuted.
America woke up and realized how ridiculous the Archie Bunkers of the world were. Sadly, fifty years later, he is a role model to a moron class yearning for " those days".

My mom has cable TV because she lives in the mountains and that's the only way she can get the local news channels.

I know a lot of people have cable because I guess it's the way to go for all your sports needs.

And I have a few other family members who have cable because they enjoy watching garbage television (i.e., cable news and reality shows).

I remember back in 2001 was the last time I paid for cable. It was $7 for the basic package, which included all the networks and like 20-30 of the major cable channels (cable news, TNT, TBS, Discovery, MTV, VH1, etc.), and this was back when there were less than 100 channels, tops. It started going downhill fast a few years after that.

Haha... that kind of nonsense was going on LONG before Hillary was even born....

The Soviets don't need to nuke us, just break up the American family, turn wives against their husbands, kids against their parents, take God out of school, debauch our currency, we will fall like overripe fruit.

Unless, of course, we could Make America Great Again.

Ha ha, not out in public it wasn't. Where
you had a First Lady calling the women
who cheated with her husband every
name in the book just so she could satisfy
her blind ambitions in politics.

I'm pretty sure the Russians got the short end of the stick on that whole Cold War deal...
