    True. 600 channels, and nothing on.

    Revise the old Pink Floyd song, ‘600 channels of s*** on the TV to choose from.’
    Having acquired HBO, finally, at least I can watch Game of Thrones and Nurse Jackie… I don’t mind Veep either.

    I get one channel….
    a small, local PBS affiliate.

    When I stay with my mother-in-law and her 100+ channels on cable, I hardly notice the difference.

    I turn it on, scroll through…. turn it off.
    I admit there are a few things I might watch if I were familiar with the characters or premise…
    but what’s the point for one episode?

    And Bruce Springsteen thought he had it covered with 57 channels.

    …not true – there’s the music stations – Baroque is my personal favorite…

    With my 634 channels something good is always on.
    So I leave the TV off unless there is a particular reason to turn it on.
    Otherwise it will suck me in and homogenize my brain.

    nothing on?
    I dream of Jeannie
    T J Hooker
    Star Trek
    Bones (the other Bones, not McCoy)
    Brady Bunch
    Royal Pains
    Father Knows Best
    Hallmark Channel
    how it’s made
    through the wormhole
    lots of whodunits
    munsters? probably somewhere
    little house on the prarie
    highway to heaven
    What more could anyone ask?

    David — I agree that old re-runs are often the most interesting option,
    but of your whole list,
    I’ve never seen any of them available on any cable station at my (ex) MIL’s house…

    You include several programs I’ve never even heard of… like Royal Pains or Through the Wormhole.

    Most of her cable offerings are unbearable “reality” programming, with some news, political talk, or food shows. The only old programs seem to be on Nickelodeon…
    and they’re more likely to be 20 or 30 years newer.

    If I’m LUCKY there’s a Frasier or Cheers I’ve only seen a few dozen times….
    mostly there are sappy or inane 80’s and 90’s shows I never wanted to see when they were new.

    Sometimes I wish my antenna would pick up more stations… but seeing what’s out there…. oh well.

    You found KVOS-TV (they changed their name – but the station is still in Bellingham, WA). They show all the goodies – Get Smart, Man from Uncle. Gunsmoke, Rawhide.
    @ SusanSunshine Since I now have the PVR – my channel selection has grown. But I haven’t explored much. And much is simply same shows on at different times.
    But there are the Music Channels! Nothing on the screen except to show what song is currently playing. So when I want background and no TV – I turn to something in the 401-451 channel range. Lots of different music.

    Royal Pains — USA-concierge doctor in the Hamptons, brother in finance, The Fonze as their father, not unlike House figuring out what is making people sick, with some intrigue thrown in.
    Through the Wormhole — Science Channel, Morgan Freeman narrating
    Saw Born Yesterday today, Susan Newman’s birthday as well as Judy Holliday’s on Turner Classics
    TVLand tends to run the old shows
    cloo shows mysteries, including Matlock and House (different types of mysteries, but still questions to be answered)
    JLTV I think it is has old Jewish comedies of whom I had never heard.
