61) Tales From the Cryptkeeper (1993-1994, 1997): This animated series based on the Tales From the Crypt comics and also a milder spin-off of sorts from the TV series also followed the anthology style of storytelling with the Cryptkeeper as host relating a story and sometimes sparring with comic book rivals the Old Witch and the Vaultkeeper over who gets to tell the story and frighten all the little kiddies.

Yeah we're over 60 now. Honestly never thought we'd get this far but now I think we might be able to add several more yet.

Sorry, I didn't remember seeing it, and I didn't really have a chance to double-check the list.

How about General Electric Fantasy Theater?  IMDB only lists a couple of episodes, but a couple of episodes is still a series isn't it?

Could we include Reading Rainbow, or would that be too far of a stretch?

RC, "Love, American Style" has already been listed but I still appreciate the effort and the clip!

Pacman, "General Electric Theater" qualifies as far as I'm concerned - the show was actually on for 9 years and was hosted by Ronald Reagan! "Reading Rainbow" does seem more of a stretch but I think I get where you're coming from suggesting it...

63. I know it was never aired (much like Karloff's the VEIL seires) but how about the Swedish 13 DEMON STREET series hosted by Lon Chaney?
Some episodes were later edited to make the film the DEVIL'S MESSENGER (1961)

Sure why not RC, after all we added "The Veil". And considering it was hosted by Lon Chaney all the more reason...actually I read it did air in syndication. A few more I stumbled across while researching some of the suggestions of RC and Pacman...

64) Schlitz Playhouse of Stars (1951-1959): This classic anthology series, sponsored by Schlitz beer, adapted both dramas and comedies during the 1950s. Initially a live series, later its episodes would be taped. Two of the stories served as pilots for other TV series including "The Restless Gun" and "Tales of Wells Fargo"

65) Lux Video Theatre (1950-1959): Another 1950 television anthology series that spun off from radio (Lux Radio Theater), this series aired on CBS initially running 30 minute episodes but later expanding to 60 minutes. Regular series hosts including James Mason (1954-1955), Otto Kruger (1955-1956), Gordon MacRae (1956-1957) and Ken Carpenter (1955-1957). Later the series would be changed to a musical variety show but eventually would revert back to a dramatic anthology.

Do we have Nightmares and Dreamscapes? It sounds like a short-lived anthology series based off stories by Steven King.

There was a British show based on The Canterbury Tales in 2003.  I don't have many details, but it might be worth a look.

Yeah,  all those seem to qualify although I've also seem Nightmares and Dreamscapes listed as a mini-series. Nevertheless it's close enough to anthology in its execution I haven't a problem adding it here.

Also there's...

72) The Revlon Mirror Theater (1953): seems to have adapted many soap style tales.

There were three classic anthologies hosted by women...

73) The DuPont Show with June Allyson (1959-1961) (AKA: The June Allyson Show) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_DuPont_Show_with_June_Allyson

74) Jane Wyman Presents The Fireside Theatre (1955-1958): Actually Fireside Theater upon further research started as far back as 1949 and was originally hosted by Frank Wisbar and Gene Raymond prior to Ms. Wyman and it eventually becoming "Jane Wyman Presents".

75) Letter to Loretta (1953-1961) hosted by Loretta Young. In addition to hosted, Young also appeared in many of the dramas produced for the show.

76) Robert Montgomery Presents (1950-1957): Montgomery hosted, sometimes interviewed stars appearing in the plays adapted and occasionally appeared himself in the plays.
