Sorry it took so long for me to get this up, the hazards of a live in caregiver approached with an ER Trip for my patient. We're back home now.
Koffee klatch,
What was your favorite childhood memory of watching television with a family member? What show?
For me, every Saturday morning my father and I would watch CHiPs. Due to being tone deaf, I had speach issues. I was 8 or 9 one time, and it was time to watch our show. I kept trying to tell my dad it was time, but he didn't understand me. So I signed to him one moment, as I knew just basics of sign language as a way to communicate compliments of dad teaching me what he knew. I ran into the kitchen and grabbed a bag of potatoe chips, ran back to my dad pointed to the word "chips" on the bag, pointed to the clock next to his bed and pointed to the television. He got the picture, and helped me up on his bed (it was like a really high bed and I couldnt quite get up on my own). He flipped on the show, we got hungry, and he opened the bag of chips, got us some soda (what a breakfast I know LOL). about halfway through the show, my mom comes in and asks if we had breakfast. So my dad and I looked at each other then looked at my mom and said yes. She asked what we had then (darn mom radar) then we looked at each other again and picked up the bag of chips and showed them. She yelled at us and told us it was not a breakfast and we had to eat a real breakfast and she was going to make it instead of leaving dad up to breakfast LOL. Don't know why but I remember she made eggs and toast.

My grandma lived right next door, and I remember going over to her house every week to watch "The Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island." I also have great memories of watching "CHiPs" and "Knots Landing" with her. Strange fare for a little kid, but I loved every minute of it. :-)

Some of my fondest memories of t.v. at my own house are watching all of the Christmas children's shows (like "The Grinch, "The Little Drummer Boy," etc.) that came on just one time, once a year. It seems like most of them came on CBS for some reason (we only had 3 channels), and we would get all excited when CBS would play their little jingle that always led up to a "special." Afterward, I would lie in my bed and stare out into the living room (we had a very small house) at the lit Christmas tree with the rotating star on top. Such comforting memories......

I was a child of the 50's and can recall watching Wizard Of Oz year after year.  My mom and dad would sit with me and watch. 
Every Saturday morning I watched The Lone Ranger and Sky King but I always watched them alone because Mom was always cleaning house and Dad was always outside doing yard work. 
God Bless!

Shannon, I remember the Wizard of Oz so well, too! It was a big event, something we all watched together. Once we made brownies to eat while we watched - I couldn't have been more than 5 (funny what you remember.) That wicked witch scared the heck out of me.

We usually watched Bonzanza, too. I miss those happy golden days!

Every Sunday night we would have toasted cheese sandwhiches and Hot Cocoa and then our whole family would sit in front of the tv and watch Bonanza.
