Yepp, Star Trek, I Dream of Jeannie, Bewitched... seeing the Beatles, Stones, Animals & Hermans Hermits et al on the Ed Sullivan Show. The Andy Williams, Glen Campbell & Johnny Cash Shows. Laugh-In.

the Kennedy assassination, then Martin Luther King, Bobby Kennedy, the Ohio State Riots, the Moonwalk in 69...
Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock. Best part was when the TV went out your dad helped you get the tubes out of the TV, so you could test them and then buy the tubes to fix the TV. (Of course you had to walk to the store).

I forgot TV ended at midnight and they played the national anthem.
