Trying to remember a sitcom from the early 1980s about the "world's smallest television station." Was it real or did I just dream it up? [more inside]

I know everybody asks this (and I've read through the previous questions looking for recommendations), but what should I watch next? Preferably on Netflix or Hulu Plus (not web only). In general, I tend to like: mysteries/crime procedurals/law dramas, especially with a quirky twist, and also shows involving a quirky band of misfits (or individual) working outside the law to bring justice to the little people while finding out who done them wrong (e.g. the A-Team, Burn Notice, The Pretender, etc.) I also like heist shows and sci-fi. And occasionally anime. [more inside]

I cannot remember this supernatural-esque show and it's driving me nuts. I'm beginning to think I'm crazy and that it doesn't exist. It was on a major network channel and dealt with fictional scary paranormal abilities, not in a docu-drama way like Ghost Hunters. Help me find it? [more inside]

A boy buys an earring at an old junk shop, either he can't afford both or the guy sells it to him for a great price because there's no pair for it. Once he start wearing it though, trash becomes attracted to him. He ends up taking refuge (I think) in a phone booth and the trash falls away when he takes out the earring. My question, what show was this? [more inside]

Back in the day, what did contemporary viewers of The Andy Griffith Show
feel about the show? Was it good and wholesome, or sordid and immoral? Was it 'funny ha-ha' or 'funny omg i can't believe they just did that!'? Realism or surrealism? Sitcom or soap? And all that jazz. [more inside]

"Da Ali G Show". Know the song titles of the tunes in between the show's segments? Yeah, me too. My searching turned up nothing.

In the 1980s, pbs aired an off broadway performance (at least I think it was off broadway) that featured a one man show.
The show was about a character trying to write a work report, from his apartment. Unfortunately, the character's low attention span kept distracting him in various entertaining ways, which created many laughs for the audience, but infuriated his boss, who would call him on the phone in between bits.
After so many years, I could be wrong on every single detail, but the show's vibe was fairly unique (for tv at that time), so I'm hoping some one might recognize what I'm talking about, in spite of my poor description.

I understand that in movies, the title of Producer is mostly about providing or arranging the financing & talent for a project. How about for a sitcom? If you watch Friends, there's around a half-dozen producers of varying stripes listed in the credits. What's the role of a producer in the context of an episode of a TV series?
