I really enjoyed Memphis Beat. I was sad when it was cancelled.

The music in “Nashville “ is enjoyable.
“ Breaking Bad”had some interesting music also.

Even though the Wild Wild West ended in 69 the theme was very popular with high school marching bands up to the mid 70’s

Not a TV Theme, but an awesome bit of cinematic musical accompaniment.

I hardly saw any TV as a kid. We were out playing in the woods all the time.

Pop did like Gunsmoke, and of course there was the Andy Griffith Show and the Twilighty Zone

I always liked the theme from Baretta. And I know he probably killed the old girl, but I can’t help it, I still like Robert Blake.

TV Theme Baretta (Sammy Davis Jr)

If anyone is interested this is a fascinating, IMO, interview with Robert Blake done by Tavis Smiley of all people. Posted on FreeRepublic December 2011:
