getTV Adds Two '60s Sitcoms; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of February 27, 2017)

Mrs. G Goes to College

getTV expands its popular daytime programming block with two rarely seen sitcoms, as the charming 1961 higher education CBS comedy Mrs. G Goes to College moves into the daily 6 a.m. ET slot, while the rare 1960 NBC rom-com Peter Loves Mary takes over at 7 a.m. ET starting March 20. This is the first time that both series have aired on television in over 50 years. Mrs. G Goes to College stars EMMY® and TONY®-winning actress Gertrude Berg - a classic radio trailblazer and one of the first women to create, write, produce, and star in a long-running hit series—in her EMMY®-nominated role as Sarah Green, a middle-aged widow who enrolls as a freshman at the local university, where she brightens the students' lives with her kindness and helps them through their struggles with her wisdom. The character originally appeared as Aunt Sarah on the military sitcom Hennesey, starring Jackie Cooper; Cooper would later reprise his role as the titular Lieutenant in an episode of Mrs. G Goes to College. The series co-starred noted character actress Mary Wickes, who also received an EMMY® nod for her role as Maxfield; and acclaimed British actor, and two-time Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star recipient, Sir Cedric Hardwicke as Professor Crayton. Featured guests include Peter Lorre, Alan Reed, Yvonne Craig, John Astin, and Marion Ross as Mrs. G.'s daughter, a decade before she captured the hearts of viewers across the world as Mrs. Cunningham in Happy Days.

Peter Loves Mary

Peter Loves Mary stars real life husband-and-wife duo Peter Lind Hayes and Mary Healy as married entertainers, who give up the glitz and glamour of New York City for life in the quiet town of Oakdale. While Peter quickly grows bored of his new surroundings, Mary keeps things interesting with a number of misadventures involving the couple's housekeeper and two local children. Notable guests include Yvonne Craig, John Astin, Alan Reed, Wallace Ford, Jack Weston, and Bill Erwin. Hayes and Healy appeared in many classic films and shows together over the years, including the 1953 cult favorite The 5,000 Fingers Of Dr. T, and were also the original voices of the beloved 1949 jingle "See The U.S.A. In Your Chevrolet."
