Oh for anyone who’s curious, The Phil Silvers Show airs on (what I think is MeTV’s sister-channel) Decades. I recently discovered I was able to pick up that channel a couple weeks ago. Oh, and...though I hadn’t watched it until I found it on Decades a couple weeks ago... I am now hooked on Dark Shadows 😆😝lol. I have my DVR set to record it since it comes on at the crack of dawn. 🦇🌕🩸 (Maybe that would be something good for MeTV’s Fall Schedule. Especially because of Halloween and all, that’d be something eerie for them to air in October. 😄)

Bilko was one of my favorites. Great show, great characters, and let's remember Top Cat owed it all to Phil Silvers. Arnold Stang, another fave, was awesome as TC and was the only one who could have done Phil's character.
