I would insist on showing reruns of THE GONG SHOW and the $1.98 BEAUTY SHOW.

I loved the Gong Show! I swear that Chuck Barris and the whole panel were numb on cocaine and drunk.

Also HOGAN'S HERO'S- because German accents are funny!
And LAFF-IN, the BANANA SPLITS, and the mighty ISIS!

Alternative idea: Get a bunch of TV shows which ran 2-3 years. Play one episode a week.

If a show ran two years it should have 40-60 episodes, & was at least sort-of popular. 40-60 episodes aren't enough for daily syndication, so they should be cheap to license, & fans might be eager to see them. Weekly airings should still give you about a year's worth of shows.

Assuming a 6-hour repeating schedule, where mornings repeat last night's programming, you'd need 84 series to make this work.

Call it TV-Rarities or RetroRarities.

It would probably look a lot like El Rey, but with more pre-1970s content.

I'd love to show old stuff that is "before my time" that was never around in reruns when I was growing up and I had to find in other ways.  RCMerchant mentioned Isis, which I found out about through tape traders at conventions.  I would never have learned about the magnificent series East Side/West Side, starring George C. Scott if not for one Social Work professor sharing trivia about "the only TV show about a social worker."  It's good stuff that there is already a following but never get air play.

Of course, once per year I would have a "Schlock Around the Clock" movie marathon. 24 hours of bad, low-budget and/or cult movies. As a gift to the TV station's loyal viewers, I would show them uncut and without commercial interruptions.

I'd do an orignal program called "Escape pod theater".  Every week like 4 people get together in a room (their escape pod)  and watch a bad movie while discussing it. Not quite mst3k,  they might raise issues about things in the movie.

12am: National Anthem (I remember when that would play before the channel would go off the air, I miss that.)
12am - 2am: Infomercials (Hey, there's some good stuff on those they help pay for the channel and can be good for a laugh or a drunk buy)
2am - 4am: Late night movie (Some cheesy Sci-fi movie, I used to watch these as a kid always great)
4am - 6am: Older TV shows (Andy Griffity, Leave it to Beaver, Gilligan's Island, that sort of stuff)
6am - 7am: News
7am - 9am: Morning Cartoons
9am - 11am: Game Shows (Price is right, Let's make a deal, these kind of things)
11am - 1pm: Infomericals
1pm - 3pm: More Older (yet modern) TV shows.  Matlock, Murder She Wrote, ETC
3pm - 5pm: Afternoon Cartoons
5pm - 7pm: News
7pm - 9pm: Game Shows (Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, reality TV *think Titan Games*)
9am - 10pm: Adult cartoons (Rick & Morty, Archer, those type)
10pm - 12am: Late Night TV

Of course that's for Weekdays.  Weekends are too much to think about right now.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
