Some time ago I was musing on this blog about where the heck The Dick Van Dyke Show went, because I couldn't find it in reruns anywhere. I found it odd given the current fascination with all things 1961.
It turns out this marks the 50th anniversary of the premiere season of The Dick Van Dyke Show on TV. As a result there is quite a bit of commemorating going on about the show. In fact last Sunday was the 50th anniversary of the show's premiere.
TV Land has picked up the show for its schedule and ran a marathon for the show this past week. As well, a new book is out with the whole behind-the-scenes history. Good stuff.
