The Brady Bunch 1969-1974 ABC TV rating G Wholesome sitcom, although highly unlikely, suburban Los Angeles blended family-a widow (Florence Henderson) with three daughters and a widower (Robert Reed) with three sons.
Full House 1987-1995 ABC G Family sitcom where after losing his wife to a drunk driver, a younger father has his brother-in-law and best friend move in with him, to help raise his three young daughters. Despite this, the importance of having a male and female parent is still encouraged. Starting in Season Two, Becky Donaldson (Jesse's girlfriend and later wife) becomes a mother figure for the girls. Followed by a more liberal-leaning sequel, Fuller House, which debuted on Netflix in 2016 and promotes more liberal values and politics (including the trashing of Donald Trump in the pilot episode) and shows them in a positive light, as well as looking very much like nearly every live-action Disney Channel show produced in recent years. Series star Candace Cameron Bure, who appears in both shows and was also a panelist on ABC talk show The View (acting as the conservative counterpoint to the show's heavily liberal panelists), is a born-again Christian and is socially conservative.
Family Ties 1982-1989 NBC TV rating PG Dramedy series about how hardworking conservative children, e.g. Michael J. Fox, outsmart their liberal, ex-hippie, underachieving parents.
The Critic 1994-1995 ABC, Fox TV rating PG A comedy about a critic fed up with the terrible movies that are ruined by their Hollywood values (His catchphrase was "It stinks!"). It was released in an industry run by liberals, and that may be why it was cancelled before its time.
Last Man Standing 2011- ABC Conservative show starring Tim Allen as Mike Baxter, a marketing director for a sporting goods store chain called Outdoor Man, who strives to keep his manhood (fishing, hunting, sports and camping), and promotes conservative values (including supporting the military), in opposition to his antagonistic liberal daughter Kristin (the oldest of three daughters Mike has with his wife Vanessa) and her equally-liberal husband Ryan, who often clashes with both Mike and Vanessa over political, cultural and philosophical issues. Unlike the similar and more vehement clashes between Archie Bunker and Mike Stivic in All in the Family where the latter comes out on top due to ignorance and lack of ability to make cohesive arguments on Archie's part, however, it is the often-clueless and hypocritical Ryan who ends up on the losing end of arguments with the more well-versed and level-headed Mike. On the other hand, Mike gets along very well with his youngest daughter Eve due to them sharing similar political views and interests, as he does with Boyd, Kristin and Ryan's son and Mike's grandson (and as expected, Kristin and Ryan are not impressed that Boyd has more in common with his grandfather than with them).
Duck Dynasty 2012- A&E PG Portrays the lives of the Robertson family, whom contain strong Christian beliefs, and are also active hunters.

Married...with Children 1987-1997 Fox TV PG The show mocks liberal values, however it also portrays a dysfunctional family as funny.

Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! 1969-1970, 1978 CBS; ABC TV-G Although it does teach kids conjugated thinking skills, most if the villains are businessmen which some could argue is an anti-capitalism statement.
Ash vs Evil Dead 2015- Starz TV-MA Well despite it's unrealistic views on demons, it a least portrays them as evil. And while our hero does smoke weed (only once) it does show the disastrous results and consensuses of his actions. It also does portray gun ownership in a positive light.
Justice League 2001-2006 Cartoon Network TV-Y7 A private non-profit organization lead by American icons Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and other DC characters fight to help the helpless and fight for justice.

Also in "To Another Shore" states that Global Warming may be real.
The Middle 2009- ABC TV-PG Despite having a homosexual character (he's only a minor character though, and didn't come out until later in the series), the show is clean cut pro-family sitcom, which has been lacking in recent years.

MacGyver 1985-1992 ABC TV PG The main character played by Richard Dean Anderson uses Yankee ingenuity to solve various problems and escape the clutches of his enemies; the series eschews violence until absolutely necessary. Although this element overall was conservative, the creator Vin Di Bona implied a few times that it was meant to promote the anti-gun agenda, which the anti-Communist site "Discover the Networks" uncovered with it being said "MacGyver producer Vin Di Bona noted that anti-gun messages were a recurring theme in that program. When asked what he thought of conservative critics who claimed that Hollywood was overwhelmingly liberal, Di Bona responded: “I think it’s probably accurate, and I’m happy about it.”"[3] A reboot of this series, with Lucas Till in the title role, debuted in 2016.
