    Did The Smothers Brothers Show go into the 70's? [OK, I looked it up... it went from 1967-1970 - I guess it qualifies ]

    I had to go with Hee Haw. A few reasons...I use to watch it with my grandfather when I was a little girl (he died when I was 11) and because of all those on the list it's the only one I ever saw more than once

    How about "Sha Na Na"...that one I watched with my dad! We both LOVED it

    I thought Carol Burnett Show was going to win this one hands down. At least they are still in it.

    The Muppet Show should really be included

    the Dean Martin Show should have been on that poll. It ran from 1965-74. Loved the roasts, and especially Foster Brooks.

    The Dean Martin roasts were very funny, Sonny and Cher was also pretty good sometimes, but Carol Burnett was consistently funny.

    I think Pedro might be a little too young to appreciate the Variety Show and its power, it's really more of a 60's early 70's thing.

    I'm not too young to remember its' pain.

    Actually I liked Carol Burnett when it was on.

    Momma's family has made that hard to admit.
