Why aren't these shows being shown anymore? I'm a new member and one of the specific reasons I joined was to be able to enjoy watching these great old sitcoms. Amos and Andy was one of my all time favorites and I hope this site will be bringing them back for all to enjoy and soon. As an old time radio fan I learned to enjoy the talents of both Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll. Two innovators in radio pioneering who brought forth Minstrel to the radio stage. I never looked upon this show as being racist but merely as entertainment. Don't believe it was ever meant to demean the Blacks but simply entertain. It was no more racist than the Beverly Hillbillies.
