TV Shows - Dick Van Dyke Show, The

The Dick Van Dyke Show is an American television situation comedy which initially aired on CBS from October 3, 1961 and ran until June 1, 1966. The show was created by Carl Reiner and starred Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore. A three-camera/studio audience production format was used during production. The show was also produced by Reiner, who wrote many episodes and played the role of Alan Brady. Reiner based the main character on himself and the Brady character on his former boss Sid Caesar. Many of the show's plots were inspired by Reiner's experiences as a writer for Your Show of Shows (which starred Caesar). The Dick Van Dyke Show was the recipient of 15 Emmy Awards.

1 Bar none, the best sitcom of the early 1960s. Sure it's dated, but it is still very funny. I think it's amazing, as of this writing, that the majority of the cast is still alive. They must have done something right. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 11, 2013, 6:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 The show didn't bone. Like one of the earlier comments, they ended it early before it had a chance to get stale. They had a nice big living room, perfect for those occasions that you invite the neighbors over and break out in song and dance. Rock on Dick! -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on March 6, 2012, 1:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Really funny show that has aged well and still makes me laugh to this day. I liked that Carl Reiner voluntarily ended the show after five seasons instead of going on and on. I do think the show boned the fish, if it did bone, during the fourth season. Brady, the egotistical star that before was never on camera, suddenly was always on camera. It brought him down to the same level as the other characters and the show was just not that same after that. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 10, 2010, 3:39 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I don't think you can legitimately say the Beverly Hillbillies always clobbered Dick Van Dyke. They were on the same network - they never went up against each other. That, plus in the 1964 season, Dick Van Dyke actually had the better ratings. -- Submitted By: (mobycat) on April 30, 2010, 7:16 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Still funny today. It was clobbered in the ratings by "The Beverly Hillbillies," but always walked away with Emmies year after year. Morey Amsterdam (the poor man's Sid Melton) could get quite annoying, but overall one of the best casts in TV history. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 15, 2009, 3:08 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
