‘Sock it to Me?’

Over the past two weeks, The Savvy Screener has presented “advance recaps” of “1968/Television,” screenings taking place every Sunday this month at the Paley Center for Media in both New York and Los Angeles.

The final screening schedule is so good, it’s being shown twice – on both March 18 and March 25.

The lineup, which starts with Richard Nixon’s appearance on NBC’s Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In during the 1968 Presidential campaign, also includes an episode of NBC’s Get Smart (“Snoopy Smart vs. The Red Baron”) and the pilot of ABC’s The Mod Squad.

If you’re in the New York or Los Angeles area, all screenings are free. For more information, visit PaleyCenter.org.
