The 60's version of Batman (with the goofy lines, costumes with tights and weird camera angles).

The Lone Ranger (the black and white classic).

The Dukes of Hazzard (Catherine Bach is so much hotter than that new actress)

Get Smart (the Mel Brooks classic)

and of course the original Star Trek.

Yes, certainly the original "Star Trek" has that effect on me.

Maverick
Dick Cavett show
Some episodes of I Love Lucy
A few British series that I always have trouble remembering the names of, such as House of Cards, and one by Dennis Potter (blanking). One called Glittering Prizes, written by Fredric Raphael.
Geez, Davy Crockett. I had a crush on Fess Parker. (Stares at self).
Something called Inner Sanctum. (Was that Vincent Price?)
Alfred Hitchcock Presents (they were short stories, if I remember)

@edgarblythe,
Yeah, Maverick for sure.

The Steve McQueen bounty hunter series was called 'Wanted -- Dead or Alive,' I believe.

Rawhide, where Clint Estwood got his start.

@dyslexia,
Chuck Connors was the only Hollywood actor tall enough and spry enough to actually twirl that full-length Winchester on his index finger the way lesser western stars twirled their sixshooters.
