re: Was Hee Haw a thing in Louisiana?
I watched it b/c my dad loved it. He is nos 88 years old and still watches Hee Haw reruns along with other old sitcoms.

The wonnderful World of Disney on Sunday evenings also holds a special nostalgic place in my heart and mind.

Simpler times indeed and a prayer that those days would will once again be the norm.

In North La it was every Saturday evening around 6pm (maybe 6:30?) on KNOE. Every now and then I'll randomly break into "Where, or where" or "Gloom, dispair and agony on me"

The fake old time phone number “BR 549” is a legacy of Hee Haw:

I remember thinking how fat Junior Samples was.

Now half of y’all are fatter and I’m subsidizing your obese asses’ healthcare.

Hee Haw was a fixture of my childhood in Shreveport, and I get a little misty eyed reminiscing about it.

Sorta like when I start crying every time I hear Roy Clark singing "Yesterday When I Was Young."

Worse show in the history of television, the only reason it ever had viewers is because they competed with soccer on Saturday/Sundays? about 30/40 years before soccer ever even started to take off in the US.

My parents didn’t like Hee Haw, but I do remember the intro. The best Saturdays followed the Fridays that Dad came home from work with a bag full of rented VHS movies. Kids today will never understand the excitement of sorting through that stack of rentals looking for the G/PG labels.

Back when the PG movies still had a few cuss words. The 80’s

re: Was Hee Haw a thing in Louisiana?
So, I have three nice things to say.

First: boobs.







Even if some of them weren't that hot, they had the right idea.

Second, Roy Clark and Buck Owens were amazing musicians. Clark was an incredibly talented guitar virtuoso.

Third, Hee Haw occupies an incredibly interesting place in broadcast and entertainment-business history. I urge you to read this link:

https://twitter.com/gbullard/status/1063246333170130947?lang=en

which explains it well. Short version: critics hated it because it was seen as "conservative" compared to Laugh-In, and anything not anti-Nixon had to be squelched; audiences loved it; CBS dumped it, not out of snobbery but because new ratings tech showed it was real popular with old people and they wanted young viewers; luckily, there were new FCC regs that required non-network shows to be shown, no network owned Hee-Haw so they tried something new: independent syndication. They began shooting the show in Nashville in sprints- a whole season would be filmed in 2 to 3 weeks. It was the first show to be edited by a computer! Its syndication was an enormous business success, as hundreds of local stations bought it. The show was popular with rural viewers but it actually was a big success in urban markets too, like Chicago and New York. Syndication turned out to be a big way to distribute shows popular with older viewers. Although not all were like that- 'Soul Train' was a syndicated show popular with black (and white) viewers, perhaps an early harbinger of the future of network TV which over time would feature more and more shows with black stars. Hee Haw lasted until about 1992!

We did not watch it. My Dad was a serious man and didn’t go too much for silliness. We watched Disney on Sundays and Wild Kingdom and such. The old sitcoms Andy Griffith,All in the Family,Sanford and Son.
