The Honeymooners is still being aired but it's on rather late. I grew up watching that show on Saturday nights with my parents and aunt and uncle. I miss the celebrity roasts and variety shows too. I suppose I'm being partial, but imo, some of the best TV viewing was during the 50s, 60s and 70s. Not that there isn't anything good to watch now, but it seems to be limited. Perhaps if I were in my teens or 20s, TV might be much more entertaining to me. This generation has many options for entertainment that mine didn't. I can't imagine how I ever got by without a computer. I remember when my homeroom teacher told me one day everyone would own a computer. It seemed so incredible at the time and now here I am with a computer, just like my HR teacher said. Kids seem so much smarter and advanced today and with access to so much technology, but they also are faced with issues my generation didn't think about or had to worry about. The nice thing is that if you don't like what's on TV these days, you can go to a rental store or buy whatever you want to watch. Now that's progress!

Hi 60s Chick, I was rather young when the Honeymooners were on...I was always scared of Jackie Gleason...I always thought he was going to hit Alice...

Hi Marissa. I was little too when I watched that show with my folks. The ironic thing is that my parents sometimes reminded me of the Kramdens. They got into spats just like the Kramdens. Somehow I had the sense that Ralph wasn't really going to hit Alice. The way Alice would always get the better of Ralph, I could see he was really just a sweet harmless hothead; much like my dad was. Alice cracked me up with her "Har har har dee har har". The insults were hilarious; after all, it was only TV, but when my parents would argue, it wasn't so funny - it was for real.

We actually live by Miami Lakes, where Gleason lived for years, used to see him on his fancy golfcart with the bar on it....lol...Many People don't know that Jackie Gleason was a natural at dramatic acting, too....movies like, Requiem For A Heavyweight...with Anthony Quinn and Mickey Rooney......Or a rare film, Gigot....where he plays a french deaf mute, that is the sad mascot for this little town, about who is kind to him, and who isn't....he was extremely talented....
