Your Fantasy Network Schedule

Categories: Watching TV

Written By

April 4th, 2008

"DearMe" a regular TVbytheNumbers visitor and aspiring network executive asks if you could  create a network made up of any shows you wanted, not based on making money but based on what you love to watch, what would your schedule be?  It can include any show on broadcast or cable, and you can bring back cancelled shows from the dead.

I'm probably going to bring back Dallas, All in the Family and Sanford and Son, but...I'm old.  I'll post my shows in the comments sooner or later.  Feel free to add your own.

    I modified the post. We have people going on and on (and on and on) about O'Reilly and Olbermann so we're ok with general commenting. i just have a preference for trying to keep to topic and didn't want that comment thread happening in one of the overnight posts. i thought it would be better to have a place to put them all.

    I don't have a problem with your comment frequency – and yeah, basically I get an email whenever there is a comment so i more or less see them immediately if I am in front of the computer. I'm off to lunch…post YOUR fantasy network since it was your idea! :p

    Oh my! That's a tough one. I mean, if we have the entire catalog of TV out there… man, that's a LOT of stuff. However, I'd put a lot of British TV on my station, unedited for length or content.

    Here's a preliminary list:

    30 Rock
    Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations
    Ashes to Ashes
    Battlestar Galactica
    Big Love
    Breaking Bad
    Brotherhood
    Chuck
    Cold Feet
    Damages
    Dispatches
    Entourage
    Freaks and Geeks
    Good Eats
    Horizon
    Hotel Babylon
    It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia
    Journeyman
    Kingdom
    Kitchen Nightmares (the UK version)
    Lost
    Mad Men
    Meadowlands
    Pushing Daisies
    Samantha Who?
    Saxondale
    Spooks
    The Border
    The Hotel Inspector
    The IT Crowd
    The Office
    The Riches
    The Sarah Silverman Program
    The Tudors
    The Unit
    The Universe
    Undeclared
    Veronica Mars
    Weeds

    And that's just a start.

    I've left off a) some shows that seem to have run their course (Dexter, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Sugar Rush); b) some shows that I like, but not enough to put them on my network (Reaper, Burn Notice, Californication); and c) a lot of canceled shows that I miss, but either only had a few episodes, or I've watched until they're just run into the ground (Keen Eddie, Coupling).

    Shows I watch and like now:

    Chuck
    How I Met Your Mother
    Heroes
    Medium
    The Unit
    Bones
    Carpoolers
    Pushing Daisies
    Criminal Minds
    The Office
    Supernatural
    LOST
    Eli Stone
    Women's Murder Club
    Las Vegas
    Ghost Whisperer
    Amazing Race
    Biggest Loser

    Shows I loved and would bring back:
    Veronica Mars
    ED
    Love Monkey (I know this would present a problem because they both have Tom Cavanaugh, but I'd choose ED first.)
    The Class (it was starting to hit it's groove)
    Now & Again
    Murder in Small Town X

    Shows I'd rerun in the morning and afternoons:
    Scarecrow and Mrs. King
    Profiler
    Friends
    Will & Grace
    The Practice
    Ally McBeal
    Third Watch
    Night Court
    Perfect Strangers
    Probably have an hour for WB shows that I would use to show all of one series, then all of another, and so on.
    Possibly, rerun some of the old must She TV shows that ran on NBC (ie-Suddenly Susan, Caroline in the City, Naked Truth), but not all at the same time.

    All I can think of at the moment.
