Jack Benny Program
The Adventures of Superman
The Lone Ranger
The Roy Rogers Show
What's My Line
Honorable mention to The Cisco Kid simply because I spent many a half hour as a kid watching this in reruns....Leo Carillo's Pancho was great.  Come to think of the only one of the above I didn't watch as a kid was WML which I discovered on the late, great Game Show Network's Classic Sunday night block.

Great list Steve...love the game show entry. I'm sooooooo hooked on "The Chase" with Burns and Labbett. Also...high marks for "The Jack Benny Show". That's what I love about this place so many have unique tastes and not so necessarily mainstream as mine. Well done Sir.

Well... I couldn't let the deal go by at the $9.95 price so I ordered S1 of Gunsmoke.  I mainly remember watching some of the hour length programs so it'll be interesting to see this first season.  If it holds true to 50s form for dramas there'll be a lot of story packed into that short half hour.
