Portage High School

Class of 1964

TV

Television of the 1960s...ahhh, those were the days.  Like the music of the era, the shows were tame by contemporary standards - fun, innocent, and with every problem neatly solved in 30 minutes.

All shows listed below were on-air at some point during the 1960's, and have been assembled by year and rank.    The list is quite long, so use the arrow at the right of your screen to zoom back to the top of the page.  The network on which the program originally aired is also listed.  Information is courtesy of the Nielsen Corporation.  Shows in bold are still in syndication in their umpteenth season, have changed into another version of itself (i.e.- I Love Lucy-->The Lucy Show), or are still running in regular reruns!  The two seasons overlapping our senior year are highlighted in aqua blue.  Check out the lists and see how many you remember!
