A New Documentary On ‘The Sixties’
There’s another show about the ’60s, smartly called “The Sixties.”
CNN is now on the clock for a “definitive look at the decade that changed America” I don’t even know if that’s their tagline for the series, which airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m.
Like I need to know. There have been, to date, 132 different shows, series and movies about the ’60s. OK, that’s by my count.
This one by CNN, though, is still pretty interesting.
They started off with a review of ’60s TV in the first episode. Lots of Johnny Carson, President John F. Kennedy Jr., “Laugh In” and even “The Brady Bunch” (that started in the 1969, remember?).
Here’s a clip about the famous Ed Ames teaches Johnny Carson how to throw a tomahawk on the “Tonight Show.”
Not one The Beatles on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” though. It’s produced by Tom Hanks.
This is CNN …”
