Weeknights at 6PM

eastern (on most MeTV stations)
Morticia and Gomez Addams head a "creepy and kooky" family whose members include not-quite-right son Pugsley, morose daughter Wednesday, Uncle Fester, the giant doorman Lurch, Cousin Itt, and a disembodied hand named Thing. The iconic sitcom, adapted from a series of New Yorker cartoons by Charles Addams, premiered in 1964, lasting for two seasons. The franchise has since spawned multiple reboots since, not to mention a beloved pinball game.
