Born in '65. I'd have to say I Love Lucy. I think it's still one of the best comedies ever.

I loved these when I was younger:

Leave it to Beaver
Little House on the Praire
Lassie
Gilligan's Island
the Monkees

The only one I still enjoy though would be the Twilight Zone.

My sister's absolute all time favorite show M*A*S*H went off the air before she was born(83). I am always impressed with that. She literally watches at least one episode a day whether it is a syndicated episode or on dvd. She could pretty much tell you any little detail about any episode. It is amazing how some shows transcend age so well. She is also a fan of I Love Lucy.

Since M*A*S*H started in 72 and I was born in 74, does that count?

I loved "Laugh-In" and "The Monkees" while I was growing up. Never really got into anything else that was older than me.

I still use "Laugh-In" lines to this day - my favorite is one of Artie Johnson's characters (think German accent) - "Veeeery EEEeentersting - BUT SCHTUPID!"
