Carl Reiner’s Favorite Episodes of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” to air Sunday Nights at 11pm

Carl Reiner’s Favorite Episodes of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” to air Sunday Nights at 11pm

Beginning this Sunday, July 5, at 11PM | 10C, MeTV will be celebrating the career of the late Carl Reiner with specially programmed episodes of The Dick Van Dyke Show. In 2019, Reiner picked his 20 personal favorite episodes of the pioneering sitcom.

As gracious as he was, Reiner shined the spotlight on his colleagues and costars, highlighting brilliant moments of Mary Tyler Moore, Rose Marie, Dick Van Dyke, et al. And, yes, he naturally had to select one with his own character, Alan Brady, the self-deprecating classic “Coast to Coast Big Mouth,” which has arguably the funniest moment with a toupee in television history.

To celebrate his life and work, MeTV proudly presents Reiner’s favorite eight episodes throughout July. These selections will air in MeTV’s regularly scheduled airing of The Dick Van Dyke Show, Sundays at 11PM | 10C.

Here is what you will see.
