Writing Prompt: A list of 10 old TV shows you’d like to make a comeback.
I have watched WAY too much TV over my lifetime. I have taken a break since mommy hood took over but the memories…. They still remain. I have too many favorite old shows to mention. For me, the oldies are definitely the goodies! Here are the Top 10 old shows I’d LOVE to see make a comeback!
1.) Three’s Company – how could you not love Jack Tripper and his ladies! The blondes seemed to have a revolving door but Janet was the keeper that stuck around. There were so many great characters. Mr. Furley was classic. Mr. and Mrs. Roper were hysterical. Who could forget Mrs. Roper’s dresses!
2.) A Different World – this is the show that inspired me. It gave a view of what college life looked like. It solidified my decision to attend and HBCU. It was such an accurate portrayal and I wish a show like that existed today to get kids interested in college. It changed my life.
3.) Living Single – it was a continuation of what started with A Different World. It was all about these single, professional African-American ladies. They were all achieving different levels of success and it was inspiring as well as funny!
4.) Lipstick Jungle – why was this show taking off the air so swiftly! It was excellent! Before knowing it would be a television show, I started reading the Candace Bushnell book of the same name. I loved the characters and once it became a TV show, I was beyond excited. I loved Brooke Shields and the other ladies. It was my new obsession and then… it was gone. It’s not really and “old” show but, it still needs to make a comeback.
5.) Sex and the City – again not an old show but it was soooo good. I don’t know if the show could come back with the old characters but some variation of it would be great. The writing on the show was so good. When it left the air, it was missed by every lady I know!
6.) Cheers – One word : Norm! This show was classic. I loved Sam and Diane. Woody was the most lovable idiot! Norm was a full-on alcoholic but I still loved him. And how could you NOT love sassy-mouthed Carla!
7.) Doogie Howser – I had the biggest crush on Doogie. NPH shattered my dreams when he came out. Oh well, it wouldn’t have worked anyway – I’m married.
8.) Mad About You – GREAT TV! I love Paul Reiser! He’s so freaking funny. Helen Hunt is awesome. I thought this show was perfection! I already wanted to live in NY and I knew when I got there I would find people just like them! The birth of their daughter, Mabel tanked the show. Unfortch!
9.) Girlfriends – Great show, great characters. Fun, witty and just good TV. I miss it so…
10.) In Living Color – Sketch comedy was forever changed with this show. It was beyond good and produced so many top-notch stars. From Jamie Foxx, Jim Carrey and Jennifer Lopez – In Living Color was the launching pad. Even the re-runs are roll on the floor funny.
