I haven't seen a television schedule in almost a decade. Gave up on TV in 2006.

Good for you James! I thought my husband and I were the only ones to give it up.

John was gifted with the talent to carry the message.

Anyone else remember when there wasn't enough programming to fill 24 hours of TV each day? Early morning hours we could watch a test pattern and listen to a loud tone. Geritol was a big sponsor in those days.

Anyone remember when a kid could memorize the entire schedule for weeks on end? It was easier with only 3 channels that went off late at night. No cable or satellite, just free off the air tv and commercials. Wait, the free is largely gone - but the commercials are still here.

Too much information, but none of it useful.

I remember only 3 channels, and one of them (KMID Channel 2)was intermittent at best. Used to wake up early Saturday mornings and lay in front of the only TV we had, which was in the living room, staring at the test pattern waiting for cartoons to come on. Bugs Bunny was first I think.

And don't forget the National Anthem.

oh - and the emergency warning... on of the most obnoxious sounds I've ever heard.

I actually mute the TV when it comes on because it freaks the dog out also.

I bet I'm not alone in muting that obnoxious noise.

I was able to play outside, do school work, have a social life. I was not too keen on crowding around the special 7" snowy, black and white t.v. with 20 other people to watch the inane Howdy Doody show. But then we got status and got the best 16" black and white t.v. The show was then Ed Sullivan which was it. But the radio was good.---Sgt. Preston of the Yukon, Grand Central Station, The Grand Ole Opry, etc.

Got rid of the TV 9 years ago. 2nd smartest thing I ever did.

how does the TV compare to the Internet ?

seems like anything you see on a TV, you can see on the internet and much, much more.

right?
