    My Favorite Martian first aired in September of 1963 on CBS and was probably one of the first sitcoms with a "bizarre" or fantasy premise to emerge in the early to mid 1960's. It joined the ranks with Mister Ed which began in 1961. The series centered around Tim O'Hara, who worked as a reporter for The Los Angeles Sun. Tim stumbled across a space-ship that crashed and discovered a Martian. Tim became friends with the Martian and began passing him off as his Uncle Martin. After all it wasn't that hard to pass him off, he could speak English and looked human. The only thing physically odd about him was that on occasions he would reveal a retractable antennae that would come out of the top of his head. Martin made it clear that he wasn't going to reveal himself to anyone other than Tim and he worked on his space ship while staying with Tim in the apartment above Mrs. Lorelei Brown's garage and when he wanted to, he would display his abilities that included, telepathy, moving objects just by pointing and he could make himself invisible. Lorelei Brown was your typical busybody who was always snooping around and Martin constantly always found himself almost being discovered by her. Angela was Lorelei's daughter. In 1963, Bill Brennan was introduced as Lorelei's boyfriend and yet another threat to Martin. First Telecast: September 29, 1963

Along with the other sergeant's from the Mess Hall, Signals, and Supply, Bilko is continually at war with Colonel Hall, who is desperately trying to put a stop to the gambling once and for all.

    Charles Schulz's classic comic strip Peanuts started in 1950. Fifteen years later, A Charlie Brown Christmas debuted. When The Little Christmas Special that Could proved to be an unexpected success, the stage was set for successive television specials. To date, over forty have been made. The Charlie Brown specials focus on one round-headed kid, his goofy but intelligent beagle, and their vast array of friends. Each has distinctive qualities: Lucy, the crabby, self-proclaimed psychiatrist; Linus, the blanket-toting theologian; Schroeder, the Beethoven worshiper whose black piano keys are only painted on; Peppermint Patty, the tomboy whose affections toward "Chuck" are only outweighed by her sports abilities; and so on. The wit, the charm, the pleasantness of these specials make them appropriate not just for children, but for the whole family.moreless

    March Madness returns with live coverage of the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament. CBS has been televising the Tournament since 1982 and was the exclusive broadcaster for all games (except the Tuesday play-in game) from 1991 through 2010. The only exception was 2003 when the daytime first round games were moved to ESPN to accommodate CBS News' coverage of the Gulf War.

    The 2011 Tournament marked a new-era of television coverage as the $10.8 billion, 14-year contract with CBS and Turner kicked in. The 67 games will be spread across four networks (CBS, TNT, TBS and truTV) allowing for all games to be televised nationally.

    The Tournament, one of the most popular events on the U.S. sporting calendar, is a single knockout tournament staged annually at various sites across America. The field, increased to 68 teams (from 65) for 2011, is made up of 32 automatic bids for conference tournament winners and 36 at-large bids as determined by a selection committee. The committee also determines the seeding for each participant. The tournament takes place over three weeks beginning in mid-March.

    There are four geographic regions with 16 teams each and the winner of each region qualifies for the national semi-finals, which are better known as the Final Four. During the first week, there are two First Four games (which reduce each region to 16 teams) each on Tuesday and Wednesday, 16 second round games each on Thursday and Friday and eight third round games each on Saturday and Sunday which reduce the field to 16 teams. The 16 teams are better known as the Sweet 16. During the second week, there are four Regional semi-final games each on Thursday and Friday and two Regional final games each on Saturday and Sunday which determine the Final Four participants.

    During the third week, the National semi-finals are contested on Saturday night and the National Final on Monday night. This guide begins with the 1978 Tournament, as that was the first year in which all games were televised on one network or another.

    The first HDTV telecasts were the 2000 Final Four and National Championship games. From 2001 through 2006, a limited number of games were shown in HDTV and since 2007 all games have been televised in HD. The telecast format is shown in the Recap of each Tournament game for the 2000-2006 seasons.moreless

The Gene Autry Show was about a singing cowboy, and his deputy partner, Pat Buttram who ride the west to help kids, women, men, or other misfourtunate people and bring the outlaws to justice. Gene Autry was always the upright person, recognized by the fans who adored him, while his partner Pat Buttram was clumsy, a lousy cook, and just plain careless. Together, they made a great team and a dynamic duo for western TV. The Gene Autry Show was originally knowned as "Melody Ranch", possibly because Gene is the Singing Cowboy afterall.

    CBS (ended 1987)
    CAPITOL was a political soap opera about three families, the McCandless, the Cleggs and the Tylers.

    The McCandless family was headed by Clarissa, a widow. She and her husband, Baxter, had five children: Tyler, an Air Force hero with political aspirations; Thomas, a handicapped doctor; Matt, an Olympic hopeful; Wally, a confused college student; and Gillian, still in her teens. Following Baxter's death, her father, former political bigwig Judson Tyler, served as the family's patriarchal figure. Playing an important role in Clarissa's life was longtime friend Senator Mark Denning. His unstable wife, Paula, was thought to be housebound. In fact, she pretended to suffer from agoraphobia as a way of holding onto her husband, who she feared was in love with Clarissa. Their daughter, Sloane, was a popular television newscaster.

    The feud between the Tylers and the Cleggs began thirty years earlier, when Myrna discovered her lifelong friend Clarissa was going to marry the love of Myrna's life, Baxter McCandless. Vowing revenge, Myrna implemented her first evil deed against Clarissa's family by destroying Judosn's political career. Exploiting the 'Red Scare' that had overtaken the counr¡try, Myrna succesfully convinced everyone that Judson was a closet communist.

    The romance between Tyler McCandless and Julie Clegg figured prominently during the serial's first tow years (1982, 1983). When Julie suffered amnesia in a boating accident just weeks before her wedding to Tyler, Myrna took advantage of the situation convincing Julie she was in love with Lawrence Barrington. Myrna approved of Lawrence because she thought he came from a wealthy family. In reality, he was a con man hoping to tap into the Cleggs' millions by marrying Julie. Eventually, Lawrence's true identity was exposed, Julie regained her memory, and she and Tyler finally wed. Soon after, a pregnant Julie had a miscarriage and learned she'd never be able to have children. Two different attempts to adopt children proved unsuccessful.

    Meanwhile, Tyler's vendetta against organized crime resulted in criminals kidnapping Julie to punish Tyler.. With Sloane's help, Tyler rescued julie. Unfortunately, Julie's return home wasn't a time for celebration. Instead, she was accused of shooting Senator Mark Denning ( he survived his wounds). It was later revealed that Jenny Diamond, a deranged woman with an amazing resemblance to Julie, was responsible. Before the serial ended, Julie and Tyler decided to separate.

    Following and unhappy relationship with former prostitute Kelly Harper, Trey fell in love with Sloane. Unknown to Trey, Kelly left town pregnant- apparently with his child. Months after Trey married Sloane, Kelly returned and revealed they had a son, Scotty. To Sloane's disappointment, Trey decided to end their marriage so he could marry Kelly. Any chance Trey and Kelly had for happiness, however, was destroyed by Kelly's growing dependency on drugs.

    After divorcing Kelly, Trey began a whirlwind romance with the young woman barely out of her teens, Angelica. they married, causing everyone in the Clegg family to question Trey's state of mind. The marriage was annulled months later when it was discovered Angelica's first husband was still alive. Single again, Trey realized he still loved Kelly. Although Kelly finally managed to kick her drug habit, Trey was devastated to discover Scotty wasn't his son. Thomas had been sexually involved with Kelly and was Scotty's true father.

    Clarissa discovered that a man calling himself Jarrett Morgan was actually her presumed-dead husband, Baxter McCandless. An accident had disfigured Baxter years earlier, causing him to drop out of his family's life and assume a new identity. During his years away from the family, Baxter became involved with Interpol and was helping the government crack a notorious spy ring operating in Washington. Eventually, Clarissa was able to work through her anger and love Baxter again.

    Sloane got her mind off Trey by becoming sexually involved with the mysterious Zed Diamond. His presumed-dead wife Jenny was the Julie look-a-like who shot Mark Denning. To protect his unbalanced wife, Zed fled Washington with her. Under Zed's loving care, jenny regained her memory, confessed to shooting Mark, and was eventually set free. With everyone believing she was sane, an obsessed Jenny hatched a plot to kill Sloane, who she thought was still attracted to Zed. The scheme backfired, resulting in Jenny's death.

    While covering a news story, Sloan was reunited with a former love, Prince Ali of Baraq. Political unrest in Ali's torn country made it impossible for him to marry Sloane. Instead, he married a woman named Yasmeen. On their wedding day, Yasmeen was killed by an assassin's bullet. To Sloane's horror, her father, who was a spy, was responsible. When orders were issued for Mark to kill his own daughter, he resisted and was murdered. Anxious to build a life with Prince Ali, Sloane gave up her career to marry him. On their wedding night, Ali was kidnapped by dissidents plotting to overthrow Baraq. In his absence, Sloane tried to run the country. In the final episode, Sloane found herself facing an execution squad. The show ended with these words: "Ready, aim..." and faded in black.

    Capitol started with the old rivalries between two families: the Cleggs and the McCandless. The wealthy Cleggs included powerful patriarch Sam, his ruthless wife Myrna; Sam's eldest son by a former marriage, Trey; oldest daughter, Julie; son, Jordy; and the youngest daughter, Brenda.

    Tattletales

    Tattletales

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1984)
    Tattletales was an updated version of the Goodson-Todman game show He Said, She Said, where celebrity couples answered questions about their marriage. As before, the idea was to match responses and win prizes for audience members. But this revision had quite a few differences that made it one of the more respectable hits of the 1970s - and not just with the sometimes outrageous responses that were commonplace in that decade. Tattletales went through two distinct formats during its two runs from 1974-1978 and again from 1982-1984. The one constant, however was that each couple represented a specific section of the 122-member audience - the Red section, the Blue section and the "Bananas" (the Yellow section) and the couple assigned to them would try to win money to be split amongst the audience members of that section by matching responses. The rules were as follows: Format 1 (February to about June 1974): The wives or husbands were onstage while their husbands or wives were secluded in an soundproof room. Host Convy posed a question to the women or men (e.g.: "What's the first thing your husband gripes about in the morning?") and the first to ring in related an appropriate story and a one- or two-word clue she or he believed her or his husband or wife would be able to recognize the story from. Convy then read the question to the husbands or the wives - shown from the isolation room via the television screen - and the clue. The husband or the wife who believed he was being talked about rang in and tried to tell the story. If the correct husband or wife rang in and his or her response was essentially similar, the couple won $100 for their rooting section on 1-Clueword or 2-Clueword worth $50 for their rooting section. After the question had been played twice (with a second set of spouses getting to vie for the cash), Convy asked a "Tattletales Quickie." Here, each spouse was posed a question as before (though usually multiple choice or yes/no). $100 was paid off among the couples who matched. Round 2 was played as before, only now the male or female halves of the couples were brought on stage and the wives or the husbands had to match. At the end of the second round, the couple(s) with the most money earned or split a $1000 bonus ($334 if all 3 tied; $500 for the 2 top money-winners and $1000 for a sole winner). Since several shows were taped at a time, the couples switched rooting sections each day (i.e., the couple who represented the Bananas on Monday would play for the Red or Blue sections on Tuesday and so on). Format 2 (June 1974-rest of run): All questions were now of the "Tattletales Quickies" variety. As before, they could be multiple choice or yes/no, but now they were open-ended; since this was the 1970s and a game show that frequently encouraged double-entendre, there were many wild and outrageous responses and while most of the questions were designed to get laughs (e.g., "Who was at the door the last time your husband answered ... and he was totally in the buff?"), some questions were deadly serious ("Would you allow a 5-year-old boy to take refuge in your home if he said his father hits him?"). Rewards were split this time ($50 for all three couples, $75 if two couples were correct and $150 if just one couple was right) and the rules for winning were also the same. If no couple was right, the pot was carried over to the next question ($300 or $450). Although the final question of the day had $300 available and sometimes additional questions (worth $150 or $300) were played if time allowed. For those who find such matters interesting, the maximum possible payout for a couple was $1750 (which has been achieved as has all 3 couples winning $0 for the entire show). In the 80's version, it wasn't always married couples. Special weeks featured mother-sons (Isabel Sanford and her son racked up $1600 for their rooting section), best friends (all male panel), sisters (all female panel) and television couples (who shared on-stage secrets). Tattletales lived three different lives - twice on CBS (February 1974 to March 1978 and January 1982 to June 1984) and a 1-year run in once-a-week syndication during the 1977-1978 season. During each of the runs, it was traditional for a beautiful young woman to hand Bert the microphone more than once Convy engaged in a passionate liplock! When Bert played the game (on several occassions), it was usually Gene Rayburn who took over the hosting duties. ----------------------------------------------------------------- THE BROADCAST HISTORY of TATTLETALES: February 18, 1974-June 13, 1975 at 4:00-4:30pm on CBS-TV June 16, 1975-August 15, 1975 at 11:00-11:30am on CBS-TV August 18, 1975-November 28, 1975 at 3:30-4:00pm on CBS-TV December 1, 1975-November 4, 1977 at 4:00-4:30pm on CBS-TV November 7, 1977-December 9, 1977 at 3:30-4:00pm on CBS-TV December 12, 1977-March 31, 1978 at 10:00-10:30am on CBS-TV January 18, 1982-June 1, 1984 at 12Noon-12:30pm or 4:00-4:30pm on CBS-TV.

    The Impossibles were a rock group who were also multi-dimensional super heroes. The Impossibles consisted of:

    Coil Man (a.k.a. Coily) could transform his limbs into impossibly stretchable coils, allowing him to bounce to avoid attacks, deliver long-ranged punches, and drill through walls. Coil Man usually drove the Impossimobile, and his guitar contained a receiver through which "Big D" could contact the group. Coil Man was voiced by Hal Smith. The character was patterned after Stooge Curly Howard.
    Fluid Man (a.k.a. Fluey or Flo) was the leader of the trio, and could morph parts of his body into a liquid form. Fluid Man was voiced by Paul Frees . The character was patterned after Stooge Larry Fine, with the stand-up hair being the obvious tip-off.
    Multi Man (a.k.a. Multi) could create infinite duplicates of himself. His duplicates rarely if ever functioned independently, and were usually used for extra strength or transportation (he could fly by continuously creating replicas above himself). A physical trait that he shared with many of his contemporaries in cartoons and comics was a mop of hair that entirely covered his eyes. Multi Man was voiced by Don Messick.

    Harrison K. Fox was a conservative young attorney trying to develop a successful law practice in San Francisco to support his wife, Cindy, and his young son, Josh. Unfortunately his life was endlessly complicated by his unconventional father Harry, a lovable con artist and private eye who was constantly getting involved in murder cases. Harry was a real character. When he got involved in a dicey case, he would inevitably drag Harrison in with him, sometimes getting free legal advice (he had, after all, paid for Harrison's education), sometimes to get Harrison to take on one of his trouble-prone friends as a client, most often to help with the legwork. That usually meant chasing people, breaking into offices, and getting shot at, just the sort of diversion a conservative attorney enjoys! Harrison's secretary Allison grew used to seeing Harry barge into the office, interrupting important meetings. Despite all this, and regardless of his better judgment, harrison could never turn Harry down. He was, after all, a lovable old coot. In Germany the show is known as Die Fälle des Harry Fox ("Harry Fox's Cases")moreless
