Bonanza

Monday - Saturday at 2 PM

eastern (on most MeTV stations)
Thrice-widowed Ben Cartwright (Lorne Green) and his three sons make a life for themselves on the Western frontier. Each of the Cartwright boys has a different mother and possesses a personality all his own, ranging from sophisticated to hotheaded. It is this dynamic between the men that serves as the show's focal point, differentiating it from the typical life-on-the-range Western.
