KBYU-TV hosts classic TV series competition Jan. 9-10

Viewers can vote on what series they'd like to watch

Join KBYU-TV, Channel 11, on Friday, Jan. 9, from 8-11 p.m., and Saturday, Jan. 10, from 8-10:30 p.m. for a classic TV series competition and vote for your favorite.

KBYU wants viewers to vote for which series they’d like to see more of on KBYU-TV, Channel 11. Go to www.kbyutv.org/vote for more information and to cast your vote, or call 1-800-298-5298.

On Jan. 9, KBYU will offer the very best in classic westerns: Bonanza, Gunsmoke and Rawhide.

Viewers may remember Bonanza, an action-and-family drama set in the post-Civil War years about Ben Cartwright and sons Adam, Hoss and Joe. Gunsmoke centers on the exploits of Marshal Matt Dillon in 1870s Dodge City. The show is the longest-running dramatic series in television history, airing for 20 years. And be on the lookout for a young Clint Eastwood as cattle driver Rowdy Yates in Rawhide.

The competition continues Jan. 10 with four classics from TV’s golden age: Hogan’s Heroes; Gomer Pyle, USMC; The Honeymooners; and Mission Impossible.

First, prisoners-of-war in Hogan’s Heroes dupe their captors to complete secret missions in Nazi Germany on behalf of the American government. Then Marine Pvt. Gomer Pyle and the other misfits in his platoon get put in their place by Sgt. Vincent Carter in Gomer Pyle, USMC.

Travel to post-Depression Brooklyn, N.Y., for Kramden and Norton’s antics as they try to make ends meet in The Honeymooners. Finally, switch gears from comedy and drama and follow the Impossible Missions Force — a team of secret agents — as they travel the world to topple dictators and evil organizations in the Emmy-winning Mission Impossible.

A complete listing of programming available on KBYU-TV is available at www.kbyutv.org.
