Culture, Tech: YouTube has TV shows now, guys, but they’re mostly ancient

  • From cheeseball comedy (“The Beverly Hillbillies”) to westerns (“Bonanza”) and sci-fi (“Star Trek”), this decade is best represented. source
  • The lineup of ’70s shows clearly pulls from the action/crime wing of TV – “Charlie’s Angels,” “Starksky & Hutch” and “S.W.A.T.” source
  • “MacGyver” and “Married With Children” headline the selection of ’80s shows, unless you consider “T.J. Hooker” a highlight of ’80s television. source
  • Fox dramas “Party of Five” and “Beverly Hills 90210” lead the lineup, but Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert fans should hit up “The Dana Carvey Show.” source
  • The pickings are pretty slim here – recent episodes of “Guiding Light,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Jericho” and new show “Harper’s Island.” source
