I remember the day my parents got their first TV.  I was 16, and when the installer finally turned it on, the show was "Kukla, Fran and Ollie".  It was a 12" Zenith, and there was a great big double antenna on the roof, one pointed toward Milwaukee (25 miles away) and the other pointed toward Chicago, 75 or so miles away.  There were 5 stations available (only 1 in Milwaukee, the other 4 in Chicago).  No soaps, either.
