I do not know about "Emergency 911" but Emergency was a show from the early 70's and one of my favorites as as kid.  It was called "Emergency 51" in syndication in some areas.

Also from the 70's I loved "The Rockford Files"  I really got a huge kick out of Jim Rockford's style and I really liked his sarcasm.

I think it was just plain "Emergency" with Randolph Mantooth. I, also, liked the Rockford files. Angel was one of my favourite characters on that show.

Hey Jdub you're thinking of Rescue 911 which ran in the late 80's to early 90's.  William Shatner was the host.  This show was shot documentary style with true stories of various police, firefighters, paramedics etc...

 Hawaii Five 0


I liked that show, it may have been the best theme song ever, at least the best opening video!  I remember the band would always play it at Peddler's Pub in Halifax on Saturday afternoons.  That and the Hockey Night In Canada theme song :)

"Mary Hartman Mary Hartman"

"Fernwood 2Nite" which morphed into "America 2 Night" starring Martin Mull and the always funny Fred Willard

From IMDB:
"Fernwood 2 Night" was a strange and delightful summer series from the mind of Norman "All In The Family" Lear. I never got addicted to its associated series, "Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman" but I really enjoyed watching this talk show spoof. Taped at the fictitious WZAZ-TV studios (Channel 6, Fernwood, Ohio), every night was a parade of peculiar - and often talentless - guests. Occasionally the Mirthmakers would go on strike, leaving poor Happy Kine, the woe-be-gone-faced bandleader, to play the show's signature theme, solo, on a clarinet. I could have it mixed up with "America 2 Night" (the series that followed the next summer), but "Fernwood 2 Night" also had special features such as "Rocket 2 Stardom" (that showcased new "talent"), and "Bury The Hatchet" (which allowed those with grudges to settle them on the air).

With the advent of cable a lot of these little small-town TV stations were gone.


"Beretta" So bad it was good

"Barnaby Jones" - we watched it to see if 80 year old Buddy Ebson would have a heart attack running after a hood in his teens or 20's.

Cannon: same thing except instead of being old as dirt fat ass Cannon was over 100lbs overweight.

Ironsides - wish someone would have rolled his ass down "The Streets Of San Fransisco"  which was another crappy police drama

The aforementioned "Emergency" - Production values on this show were so cheap. This alone was a reason to watch and laugh.

I could go on forever. This decade was a sinkhole of crappy TV shows.

Archie Bunker makes me laugh and laugh.  I wasn't old enough to completely understand the show at the time it was first aired but I watch it now and I'm amazed at the unpolitically correct humour and how brilliant it is.  I have digital cable so the show airs at least 3 times a day and I manage to watch it a few times a week and absolutely love it.  I have a huge crush on the actor, Mike Evans, who played Lionel Jefferson and after doing some snooping on Google, I found out he co-created the show "Good Times" and he died of throat cancer when he was only 57 years old in 2006.
It's Teeeeeeeeee-shirt time! CAB'S HERE, CAB'S HERE!  I think we have a Situation.

It's on DejaView right now :)

When I listed those 3 sitcoms I was only thinking about the US, of course the great Monty Python's Flying Circus and Fawlty Towers also aired in the 70s.  There were other good British shows as well such as On The Buses.

Here in Canada SCTV first aired in the 70s but overlapped into the 80s.  It was only the best show of all time :)
