maybe it's cos i'm only 24, but i think this channel will be great! and maybe it'll give Comedy Central a chance to "off load" their vintage comedies and replace the slots with fresh new stuff (The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, anyone????)

It sounds like TV One's line-up circa 1976.

seriously!/ none of you guys are interested in these shows???

Man, me and my mates LOVE catching clips of "Mork & Mindy", the Fonz and the original series of "Batman" on YouTube.


This channel will be really popular. Maybe my age group IS their target audience, cos from what my friends are saying on Facebook already, we're all psyched to watch some retro shows!!!

to me its just a channel of repeats and old ones at that , i can still remember watching all those shows and i could probably tell you what happens in each episode.

So? I love Family Guy repeats. Even watching the Big Bang Theory repeat. This channel will have some appeal, even if it is when nothing else of interest is showing. I get up early in the morning, work hard for 8h, work in the garden landscaping, then snore in front of the TV. Not looking for an intense bomb blasting explosive program to fall asleep to on the couch, would much rather have micro sleeps through Cheers.

Being part of your age group, this channel certainly doesn't appeal to me.  But as someone said, hopefully this takes some of the old comedies off comedy central to free up some space for some newer shows.

These old programmes should remain fond memories, when viewed again now they seldom pass the test of time.
