    Everyone keeps listing a bunch of old shows.

    They're not old, they've just been in syndication for a long time.

    :hijacked: I have never watched even a single episode of American Idol or Survivor but I have watched every single episode of Deadliest Catch. Maybe it's silly but I cried when Phil Harris died.

    With a few exceptions, they're the only ones worth a damn.

    For what it's worth, I don't think that's silly. That one's always struck me as more of a documentary than a "reality show".

    Because the new ones are just not that good!

    I have watched Deadliest Catch and American Pickers but would not consider them "reality shows".

    Ah man, I completely forgot about that one, American Pickers is a great show.

    Good call !!

    American Pickers is good, but Pawn Stars and Ice Road Truckers are even better!!!

    I've watched all three. The aspect of these shows (and others) that I'm not so impressed with is the fact that it's soooo clear that everything is reheased. That's different than filming "live" and then editing the tape. Pawn Stars is the worst for this followed by American Pickers. At least on Ice Road Truckers you have to actually, at some point, drive the truck over the ice and take the implicit risk.

    So, of course, you necromanced a thread that has not had a post for almost eight years just to add a link that is totally off topic.

    Well, excuuuuuuuse me if I don't share the sadness. When five crabbers potentially die, my biggest concern is a shortage of crabs. And my only question is whether they were crabbing for hard-shell or soft-shell crabs.

    So let's bring this thread back on topic. If you sing, "Dead crabbers are the life for me" to the tune of the Green Acres theme, it fits. But the notion of dead crabbers probably would fit better in a rewrite of the theme from Gilligan's Island.

    I never read this thread before, and have to admit that I missed nothing. It's pure pablum. But just to weigh in for the halibut (as opposed to the crab), my fave would have to be the theme from The Dick Cavett Show, which, as any music geek should know, is "Glitter and Be Gay" from Leonard Bernstein's Candide. Here, by Kristin Chenoweth, is one of the best versions (the Cavett theme comes at 2:40 in):

    Since were looking at this....the them from The Courtship of Eddie's Father. Harry Nilsson, who re-tooled a song called "Girlfriend." Harry also did vocal stylings in the background throughout each episode, with words related to what was going on in the episode. Nice.
