When I was a much younger man and covering local radio and television for daily newspapers in three different states there wasn’t much variety when it came to network TV shows.
Popular TV fare back then included shoot-‘em-up westerns where the bad guys lost every gunfight by the time the closing credits rolled and sit-coms where moms were always much more intelligent than dads.
Television has come a long way since those days.
Or has it?
Daytime television is pretty much the same as it has always been.
The fare may be varied but age old-sit sitcoms like “Days of Our Lives” and “General Hospital” and “The Doctors” and “The Young and the Restless” are still there.
By the same token, quite a few daytime quiz shows have also survived.
The sad thing is the daytime TV fare when programming suddenly becomes BOR-ING!
