YES! CBN was the cable network to watch on Saturdays and Sundays! I LOVED those shows! Looking back, I think GUNSMOKE holds up better than BONANZA and some others! I believe I've seen every episode except for most of the half-hours! We used to visit my mother's parents on Monday nights a lot and they had the first color TV in our family! My grandfather loved GUNSMOKE and I have some vague memory of RED SKELTON being on the same night! I always thought Matt was one of the coolest names ever along with Nick from BIG VALLEY! If I had sons, I planned on naming them all after Western characters from TV and movies! Shane and Ethan (from THE SEARCHERS)were big too! Lucky for the kids, they never materialized! I DO have a nephew named Nick though! And a young friend named Matt who HATES it when I call him "Mattheewww" in my Festus voice!
