I didn’t say they were conservative. I was answering a direct question about my favorite dramas on television.
That being said — House is a character based on logic, not emotion, so I would consider him a conservative character (if not show). L&O:CI is not as bad as SVU or the original L&O for liberal content.
How about TJ Hooker?
“Home Improvement.” Watch the beginnings and ends of scenes — the family enters, all dressed up — they’ve been to church. Didn’t have anything to do with the story, but it set up how this mom and dad were raising their kids.
A landmark episode featured astronauts — real astronauts. Nice tribute to the space program and what America owes them.
Granted the creators (conservatives all) departed after season 3 to write other pilots and left the show in the lesser hands of the usual hacky libby Hollywood suspects... but it was a fun show while it lasted.

I enjoy that show as well. I also enjoy “Mad Men.” It is probably supposed to be exposing the evil of those days, but I look at Don Draper and wish I had a boss like him to look at all day. They ditched the Brits at the end of last season, waiting to see what the American capitalists are going to do next season as they start all over again...
Guns and explosives. What’s not to like!
House MD started to have liberal pot shots ever since Olivia Wilde and Kumar (or whatever his name is) came on board.
House is an odd show. They have dealt with abortion, with miracles and a few other topics.
They take no prisoners. They show people as they really are, which is a bit refreshing.
What it isn’t is a vehicle for conservativism. It’s a vehicle for realists.
The old crew, Chase, Foreman and Cameron were all pretty good. I haven’t seen many of the new episodes.
The Equalizer was also a very conservative show.
One problem with lists like this is that not everything can be separated out into liberal and conservative. Everybody wants to claim the broad middle for themselves and deny it to the other side.
As for TV shows, I liked Maverick,....... NYPD,

As to the radio shows, b1939 and remember listening to most of them, at night, under the covers with a radio as big as myself and that light that you knew everyone could see.
You left out Sgt Preston and KING!
Andy Sipowitz(sp) also played a proud, adjusted Vietnam vet and more than one episode he would take to task any VN ‘wannabees’ that would show up...chewed out a Captain once about his (false) claims about his service...
Oh yes, don’t forget SGT Slaughter and his infamous battles with the “Iron Sheik”(??)....<: <: <:
Foreman remains a regular. Chase is on occasionaly. Cameron is gone. Shame, she was HOT!
I got my husband all the seasons. He still watches them often. Good show.. something I never watched as a kid.
I personally prefer Cuddy. More my type.
Supernatural. Good vs evil. And they get in some good quips against Clinton and obuma.
I found that out after checking out his tongue in cheek movie where he was the semi hero.
I don’t mind profanity, it’s just that most of today’s movies don’t make any sense...the progressive, socialist, eco freaks have taken over movie making.
I’ve forgotten many of the radio shows, back then... ;)
I wonder if they only got away with the show because all of the Germans in the show were portrayed by Jewish actors.
