TV shows when you were a teen?

What were some of your favorite tv shows when you were a teenager. Or maybe they weren't your favorites, but your parents always had them on..

I remember As The World Turns when my mom would watch it and my dad watching Night Court at night. A couple of my favorites were Quantum Leap, MacGuver, & The Dukes of Hazzard

I used to love "Charlies Angels". I was like every other girl who had the Farrah Flip hair styles, lol!

I also like to watch MacGiver ( how do you spell that?), Hill Street Blues, LA LAW

When I was younger I loved "Emergency" ( wasnt Randolph Mantooth cute??).

I grew up with my Mom watch The Guilding Light.

Then you cant forget the "A Team" hahaha!!

Oh I LOVED Quantum Leap!

My Mom was also an As the World Turns fan....also Guiding Light. She stopped watching after she started working when I entered high school. She didn't get "hooked" again when she became disabled 5 yrs ago.

I can't remember very many shows that I loved to watch on my own, Basically, my parents controlled the TV. My Dad used to watch Hee Haw, the Porter Wagner Show and stuff like that on Saturday night. We weren't normally allowed much TV on school nights.

Maybe someone else will mention some and jog my memory! ;-)

I was a kid during the early days of television....
Howdy Doody, The Magic Cottage, ....On Saturdays there were the westerns.. Hoppy, Roy and Gene....

Sunday nights ....Ed Sullivan...

Later on there was Red Skelton Jackie Gleason, and Perry Como
And then Gunsmoke... and then DALLAS..

TV's were very expensive and small screens!...

Just in case you are wondering,, I'm 64 *s*

I was a kind of tomboy when I was growing up.
So I watched the A-Team, MacGyver, Battlestar Galactica, shows like that.

I reject your reality and substitute my own.

What TV Shows when I was little

I loved Donny and Marie Also, The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. Some of my other favs were Hee Haw, The Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman. After school usually was Gilligan and What's Happening I'm sure I had many more, but these are the ones that stand out
I also grew up with my momma watching As The World Turns (and I still watch it religously!
