I didn't have access to NBC when I was a kid. Not until I went to college in 1995. But before then, I did see some NBC shows on my local CBS station (which was, secondarily, affiliated with both ABC and NBC). Of course, some shows I list here are from before my time anyway, so I didn't see them until much later, in syndication or on cable or satellite or whatever.
