70s TV Shows That Would Never Make It To The Air Today

  1. 2 I Dream Of Genie (1965-1970)

    A hunky astronaut splashes down after a blast into space, lands on a sandy beach and finds a bottle--a genie in a bottle. The beautiful, scantily clad Jeannie falls in love with co-star the astronaut and he takes his genie in a bottle home--where she’s kept until she’s summoned.

    Jeannie, the iconic character played by Barbara Eden for 5 years on the show, referred to her astronaut boyfriend played by Larry Hagman as, “Master.” This seems like something that probably wouldn’t go over too well with viewers today!


    I Dream of Jeannie produced 139 episodes until its final airing on May 26, 1970.
