I remember and watched all of those shows back then ...

THE NIGHT STALKER (1971) is the greatest made-for-TV movie.  Though not as good, I liked the follow up movie THE NIGHT STRANGLER (1973) too.  I love DARREN McGAVIN and KOLCHAK the character, but that TV series (even with SIMON OAKLAND) is a drag...  I remember when that was new and I SO looked forward to it.  That faded swiftly after a few weeks.  I found the TV series disappointing.  I recently looked at bits of a few of the reruns (ME-TV Saturday nights I think) and they are still disappointing and kinda cheapo and not in a good way.


The greatest show in the 1970s: THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW.   

And SANFORD & SON
And ZOOM (PBS series)

Yeah, it was stupid. But much more fun than the endless cop shows and sit-coms on at the time.

The episodes were generally good, but they're far too repetitive for a weekly series. (From what I've seen.)

Some interesting picks which make me think of (or cherry pick)...
COLUMBO
THE BOB NEWHART SHOW Recently seen reruns and it's dated but cool.  
SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN (I remember the Made-for-TV movie and being excited to watch the series... and did, and LIKED IT!  
THE ROOKIES
POLICE STORY Each week was an hour and a different cast...?  If so, I used to watch that too!  
BARETTA  
STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO tied with STARSKY & HUTCH (My sister loved them so we watched both every week and I got to like them)

I was born in '70 and we only had one TV in the house so for much of the decade, so most of the time I watched whatever my parents were watching. These were some of our family faves:

Battlestar Galactica*
Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
Charlie's Angels
C.H.i.P.S.
Emergency!
The Muppet Show
Happy Days
Dukes of Hazzard
Diff'rent Strokes
The Gong Show


*my dad hated sci-fi, so I only got to watch "Battlestar Galactica" if there was nothing else on. He didn't mind Buck Rogers, but I'm sure that was due more to the presence of Erin Gray than anything else :D

This is pretty damn close to my list. Other considerations would be THE ROOKIES and MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS.

I'm guessing the WALTONS and LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRARIE-am I right?  Wink
MONTY PYTHON was dam close!

So was the BENNY HILL SHOW!
I could easily add lotsa regional shows, like Double Creature Feature out of South Bend IN., or Shock Theater out of Kalamazoo, MI.
Or the Morning Movie, which showed old 1930's gangster movies every weekend at 6 in the morning. I had a little black and white in my room in the basement. I watched Cagney and Bogie at 6 in the morn when I was 12. So great.

My mum loved those two shows and used to watch them all the time, along with an Australian show called The Sullivans (which I also hated). I never really watched Monty Python as a kid (although I'd seen the movies). The TV show wouldn't become a thing for me until my late teenage years. I preferred another comedy group called The Goodies (which was on at the same time). And Benny Hill was essential viewing.
