In several other threads, I and others have mentioned that when we were kids, our whole family would gather around the TV to watch certain shows. In our family, it was Jackie Gleason and Milton Berle. We also liked Gunsmoke and Bonanza.
When we were raising our daughters in the 1990s, we all loved Family Matters, Boy Meets World, Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper, and Step By Step. Also the show Amen, but our girls were very young when it was on TV.
And of course, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman. Our girls bought the DVDs, and every time they’re home, they spend hours watching these shows again. (It was a great show until the last season, when it got “political.”)
Are there still shows on regular network TV that everyone in the family can enjoy together? American Idol? (But sometimes the words to the songs are kind of racy, so it’s not really that wholesome.) Any of the cartoons? I know that cable has “family” shows, but how about regular TV? What do you gather your whole family to watch?
