image for Ghosts Of Old TV Shows Haunt Analog TV
The Never-ending Story

Hollywood CA-- Americans are turning on their old TV sets today and seeing ghosts. They are discovering old TV shows never really die, they go on forever and ever. Old TV shows have immortal shows too, and they still want to be seen and heard.

The shows never really left the air after cancellation. Analog signals blocked the ghost signals of these dead programs from being seen. Now that the analog signal is gone, the shows can be seen once again.

The original Star Trek recently celebrated its 1,000th show. Kirk, Spock, Bones and the rest of the crew expect to celebrate their 1,000,000th show sometime in the 25th Century.

The Brady Bunch is still together and they still live in 1972. The Brady kids will never finish growing up. Their story will continue billions of years after the sun goes nova.

The seven castaways on Gilligan's Island are still stuck there in the 21st Century. They will still be trying to get off the island long after the human race is extinct.

These 'ghost shows' only appear on old analog TV sets. Old TV shows from cable and digital television don't seem to have souls.

Theologians and TV executives are still sorting out the implications of this unexpected discovery. Theologians agree that if TV characters and plots never die, then there must be an afterlife for everything and everyone. The TV executives are just trying to determine how to make money off these restless TV spirits.
