Decades’ Weekend Binges, Sep. 2019

Decades spends a weekend honoring a comedy legend and then goes off to the West.

Aug. 31-Sep. 1: Peter Gunn

Sep. 7-8: Bob / The Bob Newhart Show

Decades plays a triple-header of Bob Newhart, who turns 90 earlier in the week. On Saturday, the not-long-lived 1990s sitcom Bob airs during the day and switches to the final season of The Bob Newhart Show in the evening. On Sunday, it’s the final season of Newhart, ending with the legendary finale. In the evening, it switches back to Bob. (Sorry, no The [other] Bob Newhart Show or George & Leo.)

Decades’ Weekend Binges: July 2019

Here is what is in store for those long weekend binges during the month of July.

July 6-7: Remington Steele

Title sequence to season five of Remington Steele… earlier sequences won’t embed

July 13-14: The Love Boat

A binge that is exciting and new… and one of the older shows with all its cast still alive.

Title sequence to The Love Boat

July 20-21: Matt Houston

Title sequence to Matt Houston

July 27-28: The Fall Guy

I really love the title theme and sequence.

Decades’ Weekend Binges: May 2019

May is another month of full of detective drama binges on Decades.

May 4-5: The Streets of San Francisco

This binge starts at the beginning and runs through S2E16, so I expect this one return for another binge this summer.

Title sequence to season one of The Streets of San Francisco

May 11-12: The Untouchables

Like The Streets of San Francisco, this binge of The Untouchables starts at the beginning and will run through S2E18. However, it does skip two two-part episodes — “The Unhired Assassin” from season one and “The Big Train” from season two.

Title sequence and clips from The Untouchables

May 18-19: Vega$ The Mod Squad

In honor of Peggy Lipton, Decades scratches the planned Vega$ binge for ’60 drama The Mod Squad. These episodes aren’t any block of episodes in chronological order. Rather, they appear to be episodes that best highlight Lipton, who played flower child Julie Barnes in the crime drama.

May 25-26: The Doris Day Show

The binge covers a majority of the series, starting at the beginning and ending a few episodes into the fourth season.

Decades’ Weekend Binges: April 2019

Here are programs that will air as part of Decades’ weekend binge block in April.

April 6-7: Mannix

Mannix returns for yet another binge. This one starts with S4E6, “The Lost Art of Dying,” and runs through the rest of season four and then five, though it skips one episode season four episode (“Sunburst”).


Decades’ Weekend Binges: March 2019

Here are programs that will air as part of Decades’ weekend binge block in March.

March 2-3: Police Woman

Select episodes from seasons two, three, and four of the Angie Dickinson police drama, concluding with the final episode.

Police Woman season two title sequence

March 9-10: Cannon

The binge begins in the latter part of season two and includes nearly all episodes through early season four before really skipping through the remaining episodes.


Decades’ Weekend Binges: February 2019

Here are programs that will air during Decades’ weekend binge block. It includes one weekend where there will be two programs.

Feb. 2-3: The Mod Squad

Feb. 16-17: Diff’rent Strokes

A quick introduction

This chart of TV schedules was first compiled in July 2017 with about a half dozen channels. I created it because I wanted a shortcut to see what the local sub-channels were airing and to see what those unavailable to me were airing — something still difficult, if not impossible, to do.

For several months, the chart was linked to directly on the subreddit r/ClassicTV, and I’d occasionally share it on other various sites. The schedules for the major retro networks were updated whenever a new schedule rolled out, while the lesser players were generally updated on a quarterly basis (or really, whenever I felt like taking the time to check in on them). The number of networks listed has greatly expanded.

I’ve long wanted to do a website for the schedules, and here is the first version; a mostly bare-bones site that has the schedules, some channel info but no functionality. That will hopefully change in the months ahead.

For now, the compilation is kept to over-the-air networks, though some cable networks like INSP, TV Land, and Nick-at-Nite, among others, are on the shortlist for addition at a later time. Classic shows on streaming services is also on the list of tentative additions.
