I’m super-excited about the new fall shows.
Seven people on a boat tour are shipwrecked on an island. Ha ha, they sure get on one another’s nerves!
A Confederate Army vet turns bounty hunter. He’s the fastest draw and softest heart in the West.
A cruise ship is crammed with B-to-D-list stars ready for romance.
OK, the shows aren’t truly new. They are the ’60s sitcom “Gilligan’s Island,” a 1958 Steve McQueen vehicle called “Wanted: Dead or Alive” and, yes, “The Love Boat.” But they’re all fresh additions to the nightly lineup of classics on “Me-TV.” “Me” stands for “memorable entertainment.” The Chicago-based oldies network arrived in D.C. this year on WJLA’s Channel 7.2 and on cable.
At first I was ashamed to wallow in antediluvian programming. Then I thought: Why not travel back to a pure and innocent entertainment world where Miley Cyrus wasn’t even born?
I’m not the only Me lover. Nearly a million fans enjoy “The Rifleman,” above, Me-TV’s top-rated show about an 1880s widower and his boy. And I bet FLOTUS tunes in. Her favorite sitcom, “The Dick Van Dyke Show” airs Fridays.
