What makes it so clear to me is missing those old time variety shows. I look for them on Netflix, nadda So I switch to Amazon streamin stuff, nadda I checked out Hulu ...... nadda again. Then I tried YouTube, what a pain in me bum. First the videos suck, then to make it worse the sound sucks. I MISS THOSE OLD TIME VARIETY SHOWS: Hey, have you ever seen the Smothers Brothers? How about Laugh In? Or the Flip Wilson show? And one of my favs, SHA NA NA I tried to find a good video on YouTube but this was the best I could find ..... and no I do not spend hours lookin for stuff like this, so I copied the link of the best one on the first list. What do you think? Do you like Bowzer?
Edited version of the group Sha Na Na's weekly TV show with special guest Little Anthony. 1978

@rebelann today's television just doesn't compare for the most part to older shows.

That's so true @Tampa_girl7 shows in the late 60s through the 70s were so funny, they had real humor. Either I'm way outta touch or these new fangled shows just ain't funny at all.

I haven't heard of any of these shows. They are not as good in the UK anymore. I do like Benidorm which can be found on Netflix. It is a comedy about Brits holidaying in Spain.

I am going to have to look that one up ..... oh darn, I couldn't find it on Netflix, maybe Netflix has a different lineup for different countries.

@rebelann I thought the line up was the same. I know some shows are being taken off this week. It could be under British TV shows.

I plan to call them to ask @Gillygirl somehow I get the feeling that the lineup for the USA is different from the lineup for the UK.

The Carol Burnett Show, the Captain and Tenille.....there were some shows we watched faithfully. Tim Conway and Harvey Corman were so funny.

I don't have access to regular tv or cable @Morleyhunt all I have is Netflix or Amazon or Hulu depending on which one has a show that interests me. I think the last time I had cable was back in the early 1990s when Star Gate SG1 was an active new series, now I have watched that series 4 times on Amazon, Netflix and Hulu depending on who has the license to show it.

I do not know any of those names so I guess by your standards I am ancient. I prefer not to dwell on getting old I prefer to try and keep young at heart.

I'm not sure but I believe some of these shows did not air in other countries. Do you remember the Ed Sullivan show?

He had the most wonderful variety show @41CombedaleRoad he always had at least one unusual act from another country which mom really enjoyed. It is amazing what our perceptions of fame are, I had always imagined his show aired everywhere.

I could only remember " laugh in" cause it was shown here in the Philippines and they made a local version, yes we are getting a bit old

We like to say 'getting older' which is always a good thing. Having lost many who never made it to see the years we did, we don't mind.

@rebelann It is funny how we know as we get older, we really were not as smart in our younger years as we thought we were.

I liked all the shows you mentioned except Sha Na Na. Never watched that. Every now and then I use YouTube to listen to some of my favorites.

I worked the night shift back then so I missed a lot of those shows, cable had not yet gotten to my area at the time so there was little to watch after 2am.

Ed Sullivan was amazing. Flip Wilson was so funny. I agree today there are tons of bad words and just seem to be clueless about funny. The Carol Burnett Show is a classic never gets old. Also I have watched every episode of I Love Lucy.

I keep hoping they'll eventually run a few of these old shows for those of us who want to reminisce about the good ole days. I'll bet the kids today wouldn't have a clue about all those big named stars who paved the way for those today.

The quality of Youtube videos depends on who posted them and how much care they put into getting it into a presentable format. I have watched old programs that were sharp and clear and newer ones with poor sound and graphics.

Very true. The worst part is that it can take hours to find the good ones, I don't spend hours on YouTube.

I was on YouTube looking up the Smothers Brothers when some of them came up. We sure had a lot of variety shows in the 60s and 70s.

I'd love to see reruns of all of them, of course a lot of the true funny people are now watching us from above.
