Today's TV

Andy Griffith is host and narrator of The Andy Griffith Reunion: Back to Mayberry. Yes, the cast reunited back in the 1986 movie Return to Mayberry), but it seems that the 1960-1968 series still has a gentle hold on its original viewers as well as on many who've caught the constant reruns. This time, Griffith, Ron Howard, Don Knotts and Jim Nabors reunite, and other cast members, including George Lindsey and Betty Lynn, appear in separate interviews.

The program airs from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on CBS (WJZ, Channel 13).
