For Baby Boomers, television was the central part of the living room and they were the first generation to really experience all that TV had to offer!


There have been different “waves” of television, but Boomers grew up during one of the best times in history.


the period that ran roughly between 1948 and 1959 is referred to by many historians and scholars of the medium as the “Golden Age” of television. – Britannica

Guess who was a budding kid during that decade? Baby Boomers!

Watching TV as a kid during the Golden Age was incredibly formative. Even more, the shows that played during those years were some of the most iconic and original to ever hit the screens.

Aside from having the first color TVs ever made, Boomers also had access to some of the best shows ever made!

I mean, just take a look at some of these absolute classics:

  • I Married Joan
  • I Love Lucy
  • Leave it to Beaver
  • The Lone Ranger
  • The Twilight Zone

Can you get any more classic than that?

We don’t think so. The shows were so popular, in fact, that many of them are STILL on the air today!

You can’t scroll through satellite TV offerings without seeing I Love Lucy at least once!

Baby Boomers are some of the only people that can remember (and recite) so many of those classic lines.

In fact, you can use old TV lines as a litmus test to see if someone really was around during that Golden Age!

Remember catch lines like “Hi Ho, Silver” and dozens more!
