Classic TV Lives Again on Revamped TVLand.com

AndyGriffith.jpgIn a move sure to please Baby Boomers and classic television lovers alike, TVLand.com recently relaunched its website to include full episodes of old TV shows.

According to The Futon Critic, the website is now the first official site to include full streaming episodes of classic TV for free, with episodes of "The Andy Griffith Show," "Leave It To Beaver" and "Gunsmoke" all available now. Coming soon are "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "Hogan's Heroes." The website will feature different episodes for viewing on a regular basis. Viewers who are hankering for other classic shows can get their fix with selected scenes from shows like "M*A*S*H" and "Three's Company."

TVLand.com should keep classic music and movie lovers enthralled as well. The site has created a movie section, with clips and trailers from movies like "The Blues Brothers" and "Rain Man," and a music section with almost 20 radio stations dedicated to music from the 50s, 60s and 70s. --Chris Sardelli

Got something to say? Post a comment:

I think it is a shame that tvland has gone haywire with all of these crazy shows. Why can't they stick to show's like Andy Griffith why need 50 of beverlyhillbillies in a row why cant they be more spread out this is so unfair that so many good shows like andy has to go by the way of the road. why bring on new ones I thought that tvland was for old shows.

-- Posted by: I love lucy's 2nd biggest fan at December 13, 2008 2:44 PM

BRAVO to you Lucy fans!!!!!!!!!!! Come on Tvland execs, do something please!!!!
Do you have any idea how comforting it would be to put Tvland on and see Lucy, Flipper, Hazel, Petticoat Junction, Gentle Ben, The Flying Nun, My three sons, etc. I know you get the idea. Please change your format soon. Right now I do not watch Tvland I'm hoping that will change. Thank You, please try!!!!!!

-- Posted by: beach nut at December 14, 2008 1:56 PM

I agree with the other two. TVland is about classic TV shows. Bring on all the old 50s and 60s TV shows or I will no longer watch TVland.

I WOULD DEARLY LOVE TO SEE I LOVE LUCY,MY THREE SONS,DONNA REED,LEAVE IT TO BEAVER,BONANZA,BURNS AND ALLEN, ALL OF THESE OLD SHOWS REMIND ME OF A BETTER TIME AND PLACE.LETS SEE MORE OF THESE AND FEWER MOVIES AND NEW SHOWS ON TV LAND. AFTER ALL WASN'T THAT THE ORIGINAL PREMISE OF TV LAND CLASSIC TV?

-- Posted by: SUE at December 24, 2008 3:35 PM

Wasn't the originial premiss of TV LAND to show old classic tv shows? Like ILOVE LUCY,MY 3 SONS,LEAVE IT TO BEAVER, DONNA REED, ETC..FEWER MOVIES ANS NEW TV SHOWS WOULD BE NICE.

-- Posted by: Sue at December 24, 2008 3:41 PM

The last several comments from people say it all. Have you any idea how right that person is when you are watching these old shows, it brings you back to a better and much more happier time and place!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I am in my late 40's and watching Lucy, the brady bunch, family affair, the courtship of Eddie's father, etc. would be just soooooo comforting. After all, is that not the premise of TVland? Come on............

-- Posted by: THE BIGGEST LUCY FAN THERE IS at December 26, 2008 5:19 PM

i agree with THE BIGGEST LUCY FAN THERE IS. I am in my early 50's and what's on tv now stinks. bring back all the old tv shows and you'll have lots of viewers. i too am a big i love lucy fan but i also like my three sons, my little margie, donna reed, gomer pyle. even some of the old variety shows would be nice to see. how about it guys.

-- Posted by: big supporter of all the above comments at December 26, 2008 7:53 PM

you need to take EXTREME MAKEOVER OFF FOR GOOD because it is in EXTREMELY poor taste to have this show on a classic tv channel. i think you ought to pick a year for example 1963 and play what was on tv that year for like a month or so and then go to another year and follow that line up for a month or so. isn't that what tvland is all about? but you NEED to keep I LOVE LUCY on!!!!!!!

-- Posted by: LUCY JR. at December 27, 2008 11:05 AM

I agree with the above about extreme makeover. Since Lucy won't be on anymore :( can't you do what that person said. Pick a year and run the programs that were on that year. extreme makeover has to go!!!!!!!!!!! Do you have any idea how comforting it would be to see shows from the 60's??!!
DO SOMETHING GOOD PLEASE!!!!!

-- Posted by: ccc at December 28, 2008 3:50 PM

Put the old shows back on, simple as that. I love lucy, Gidget, Petticoat Junction, Here come the brides, The Courtship of Eddie's Father, Nanny and the Professor. All that other GARBAGE HAS GOT TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have stopped watching TVLAND ALTOGETHER!!!
Until some of these old shows are put back on, I will no longer watch, how about you Lucy fans, do you feel the same way??????????????!!!

-- Posted by: dac at December 29, 2008 7:30 PM

What a disappointment, to say the least, when I found out you have taken I love Lucy off TVLAND - what are you people thinking? What a send off - to have a marathon on 12/31/08 and drop her on 1/1/09. I refuse to watch TVLAND until I Love Lucy returns.

-- Posted by: Lynne at January 1, 2009 10:27 AM

How sad to have I Love Lucy off of tv.land. WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can you at least put some of the older shows on like the ones that are mentioned in the above comments? I am in my 40's and it would be so NICE to see some of these old show. How about it tvland execs????

-- Posted by: Tim at January 1, 2009 2:21 PM

high school reunion sux! bring back lucy, mash, donna reed, etc., thought tv land was all about retro programming, my husband and I refuse to watch tv land any more!

-- Posted by: kathy at March 1, 2009 7:01 PM

TVLAND STINKS!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND I AM TELLING ALL OF MY FRIENDS!!!!!!!!!! I MISS ALL THE OLD SHOWS. I THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT RETRO PROGRAMS???? I HAVE SWITCHED TO HALLMARK CHANNEL. MUCH BETTER THAN TVLAND. BYE BYE TVLAND....

-- Posted by: lucy and ethel's biggest fan at March 2, 2009 7:43 PM

TV Land execs........... Please, please, please bring back the classics we love! I am a huge I Love Lucy and Andy Griffith fan. I cant(nor do I want to) watch High School Reunion and most of the movies you show with my little girl. However, we loved watching I Love Lucy episodes together.

-- Posted by: Tracie at April 3, 2009 5:22 PM

don't watch tv land much any more
its the same shows over and over back to back.you've got over 60 years of programing can't you mix it up a little?

-- Posted by: Anonymous at April 6, 2009 4:05 PM

I agree the new shows are awful, they are vulgar. I thought TV Land was supposed to be family shows. I love Leave it to Beaver, Gomer Pyle, Gidget, My three Sons, Andy, Lucy, Donna Reed, Hazel and many more shows. I hate the sex shows, I really think high school reunion is HORRIBLE, and that is only from watching it 5 min.. Who watches those kinds of shows have no life.

Obviously,the execs at TV Land are not listning, because they have a million complaints coming at them, and still nothings changed. As a matter of fact,things have probably gotton worse,as we hardly see the one good old show (Andy Griffith)they did leave on. So do people keep complaining or do they actually stop watching. I know I did. I will continue only to check to see if they put the programs back on. Oh and if the execs do decide to listen to us the actual viewers dont forget Dennis the Menace.

-- Posted by: Anonymous at July 6, 2009 9:42 PM

Tv land has forgot who made TVland what it is today! YOUR DEDICATED VIEWERS. you have put on shows like Rosanne which is based on a family insulting and disrespecting one another,maybe this is ok for the execs but I would rather not allow my family to view shows like this.Is TV land for family viewing? With shows like the cougar, highschool reunion,and the stupid show about the models over 40, rediculas. You have lost alot of viewers, including me my wife,and many others I know. So until those execs who took a great channel and,ruined it,change things back to what it was supposed to be, good OLD time viewing. We wont be back.

-- Posted by: Anonymous at July 6, 2009 10:00 PM

I am with the people who want the old shows like
Dragnet,Adam12.emergancy.I would like to see Dragnet from the 1950s. That is what tvland started out to show. Please go back to the old shows.

-- Posted by: jeanette Bartlow at October 13, 2009 1:53 AM

I like to see the old westerns back

-- Posted by: wade matthews at October 26, 2009 3:53 PM

I Love Lucy is the worst show ever and I am glad it is no longer on TVland.

I will agree with all of you with the rest of the trash that they show.
How did you get so rich, highschool reunion, that Kirsty alley fat show etc.. has no place on TVland.

-- Posted by: Anonymous at May 26, 2010 4:42 AM

Who do you contact for programming, and why are they not listening to their viewers?
why are TVLand's commercials so loud and annoying with that same woman announcer doing all of them, then after her its a male announcer doing more commercials...
