Although there are many shows that have come and gone, there are others which have remained on the air. There are many shows that will continue to do so for years to come. Here are just some of the many shows that you can expect to see re-runs of for a long time.
“I Love Lucy”
Everyone loves Lucille Ball as Lucy Ricardo – and Desi Arnaz as Ricky Ricardo, Vivian Vance as Ethel Mertz and William Frawley as Fred Mertz. No matter what their age, anyone is able to appreciate the humor in “I Love Lucy.” Ever since it went off the air in 1957, it has been replayed on a variety of television stations. With so many Lucille Ball fans, it is likely that this show will never stop being replayed.
“The Brady Bunch”
Who doesn’t know the theme song to “The Brady Bunch”? Based on two people who married and brought their children to live together in one home, “The Brady Bunch” was always very humorous. Re-runs of the series have also been shown ever since “The Brady Bunch” went off the air in 1974. We can expect to see this show on for a long while.
John Ritter, Joyce Dewitt and Suzanne Somers were all some truly wonderful stars of the “Three’s Company” cast. The laughs that this show brought its viewers has made them unable to forget about what a great show it was. The show, that was based on two women and a man who were roommates, has been replayed since it went off the air in 1984.
“The Golden Girls”
Beatrice Arthur, Rue McClanahan, Estelle Getty and Betty White’s performances really were golden in “The Golden Girls.” There is never an episode where you won’t laugh, cry or do both at the various experiences that are endured by these four senior citizen roommates. Since the show went off the air in 1992, “The Golden Girls” has been replayed – and it is likely that it will continue to be replayed for years to come.
“The Growing Pains”
Although there are many stations which have dropped playing re-runs of “The Growing Pains” since it went off the air in 1992, there is always a station which brings the show back. This show’s cast included some truly talented stars, such as Alan Thicke, Tracey Gold, Joanna Kerns, Kirk Cameron and even Leonardo DiCaprio for some time. Some people consider this show to be “family show” of all time, which is why it will be around for a long time to come.
“The Wonder Years”
“The Wonder Years”, which starred Fred Savage and Danica McKellar, went off the air in 1993. Now, fourteen years later, many people continue to watch re-runs of this family favorite sitcom, that was based on a boy growing up in the 60’s and the conflicts that he faced along the way. Whether you like the show or hate it, “The Wonder Years” doesn’t appear to be going anywhere for a very long time.
“Boy Meets World”
There must be something about the Savage brothers that keeps people wanting more. Fred Savage’s brother, Ben, was the main star of this show, which has been re-run ever since it went off the air in 2000. Some of the other “Boy Meets World” stars included Danielle Fishel, Rider Strong, William Daniels, and William Russ. “Boy Meets World” was a very popular show based on growing up and there is no doubt that children will be watching it for years to come.
There is just something about this show that people will always love. With the interesting cast that included Bob Saggot, John Stamos, Lori Loughlin, Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Dave Coulier, you are guaranteed to laugh at “Full House.” The show’s plot was also a very unique one, which was based on a man who has his brother-in-law and best friend move into his home to help care for his children after his wife dies. It has continuously been replayed since it went off the air in 1995. It appears that it will be around for quite some time.
“Step By Step”
“Step By Step” was definitely “The Brady Bunch” of its time, as it was based on two sets of children and the issues that they dealt with after living together when their parents were married. With some very talented stars, such as Patrick Duffy, Suzanne Somers, Sasha Mitchell, Jason Marsden and Christine Lakin, this show definitely provided many with some good laughs. Although it only went off the air in 1998, “Step By Step” has been continuously replayed – and it will probably continue to be replayed for a long time.
“Saved by the Bell”
There is no doubt that there was a lot of talent in this cast, which included stars such as Mario Lopez, Tiffani Thiessen, and Hayley Mills. The show, which is based on high school students and their journey through high school, went off the air in 1993. It has been replayed ever since and it is likely that it will stick around for awhile.
The most recent show on this list of television series to go off the air, “Friends” ended in 2004. It starred Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Matt LeBlanc and various other actors and actresses. There is always something to laugh about during an episode of “Friends.” This is what has drawn so many fans of the series – and why you can expect to see re-runs of “Friends” on television for a long time.
These are just some of the many shows that you can expect to see re-runs of for a very long time. Each is wonderful in its own way and it is likely that the re-runs of each of these shows will continue to make you laugh for years to come.
