Are you being Served? M*A*S*H and Monty Python's flying circus. And maybe one day if I'm being really honest with myself I'll admit to the Brady Bunch....

The Carol Burnett Show and the Flip Wilson Show.

Mary Tyler Moore Show of course also.

M*A*S*H I started to like in reruns and not while it was on the first time.

I wasn't alive in the 70's, but my favorite TV shows from that era are M*A*S*H and Emergency!. I do watch other shows too, but those are my favorite - and I surely hope TV Land starts re-airing Emergency episodes soon.

Is Dallas really a 70's show ? Technically yes, but it's biggest success was in the 80's (Who Shot JR was in '79).

Mary Tyler Moore, hands down. The best night of TV in the 70's was Saturday on CBS in 1973-74: 7PM, All in the Family; 7:30, M*A*S*H; 8PM, Mary Tyler Moore; 8:30, Bob Newhart; 9PM, Carol Burnett. Not even the NBC power lineups on Thursdays since the early 80's can compare with that one season!
I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.

Blacksheep Squadron

Hogan's Heroes

And just about everyone of the shows mentioned above.

When I was about 7 years old I had a very serious argument with my Grandmother on a Saturday night. My parents were out. She was watching Lawrence Welk, and wouldn't let the rest of us watch All In The Family.
She was a mean and bitter old woman. It wasn't long after that she moved to Cincinnati with my uncle's family

Seeing that picture of the General Lee above reminded me: I watched the last half of a Dukes Of Hazzard episode last Friday night on CMT, the one where Enos leaves the show to move to LA. Anyways, the last scene where Daisy is saying goodbye to Enos was shot at BUR, and in the background is the tail section of a Hughes Air West DC-9. Even noticed the tail number.....N915RW.....and it's still flying with NW.

I was not alive at that period in time, but my favorite would have to be Kojak, starring Telly Savalas. What a great show that was. The Dukes were also awesome, with Fawlty Towers and M*A*S*H also being great.

Quoting ATCRick (Reply 7):
2. The Time Tunnel

3. Land of the Giants

Those 2 Irwin Allen Sci-fi shows were from the '60s. By 1970, they were already in syndicated reruns on the then-fairly new UHF stations.

Quoting Andz (Reply 12):
Star Trek

Unless, you're referring to the animated version that was out in 1973; the original Star Trek T.V. series doesn't count as a '70s show because it was cancelled after the 1968-69 season.

I don't believe the original poster was counting syndicated reruns of shows.

Quoting JGPH1A (Reply 13):
Is Dallas really a 70's show ? Technically yes, but it's biggest success was in the 80's (Who Shot JR was in '79).

Even if the show debuted in late '79, it would count as a '70s show (as well as an '80s show that carried-over from the '70s). Just like Adam-12, Hawaii Five-0, and The Brady Bunch would be considered '70s shows as well despite the fact that all 3 shows first started in the late '60s.

Here's a '70s show title, that I'm surprised nobody mentioned yet; it debuted in 1977: Soap.
