Pick: What's your favorite TV Western?

Which Western heads 'em up?

Before The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, TV Westerns were seriously just kiddie stuff.

That all changed once cowboys like Matt Dillon and Lucas McCain sauntered onscreen. After that, adult viewers couldn't get enough of hit shows like Gunsmoke, Bonanza, Wagon Train and many more.

But when it comes to the Old West, it's important to know your alliances. Ever wonder how many others agreed with you on which shows deserve the hat tip most from one of TV's earliest classic genres? 

Pick your favorite TV Western below and see how many others chose to mosey along the same path as you.

Picked Have Gun-Will Travel. I lean towards Lawman, but that wasn't a choice.

I would LOVE to see F-Troop on a long term continuing basis. Larry Storch. . . . 'Nuff said.

Missing two of my favorites, "The Lone Ranger" and "Branded". (I guess I like the "outsider" heroes.)

While going through this list of Westerns, I kept thinking about how screwed up ME-TV's daily schedule appears to me. Why do they insist on showing these "adult" Westerns in the early afternoon while great family sitcoms like "I Love Lucy", "Leave It To Beaver", and "Donna Reed" get stuck around 5:00 AM? This makes no sense to me at all. Why not put the Westerns on after prime time when mature adults can watch and enjoy them and replace them in the daytime with Lucy, the Beaver and the others? It's so simple!

20% I love them all, but if I could only have one box set for life it would be "Have Gun Will Travel" all day long!

100% similar. My favorite TV western is The Lone Ranger, but it's not on the list. So I chose my 2nd favorite western, Gunsmoke.

This quiz was not for baby boomers because the out come would have been a lot different.

Same here. I almost picked Gunsmoke. Difficult choice here. I like almost all of these shows. There were a couple I have never seen.

Just hearing the "Wild Wild West" theme song takes me right back to the 60's.
