You guys aren't going far enough. Some of us are old enough to remember the great big band themes of shows in the 50s and 60s, especially all the detective shows. "Peter Gunn" was a special example, featuring big band and combo jazz in the soundtrack and the show's plots.

I heard the WKRP theme the other day and never really took the time to appreciate what a fantastic drum groove it had. It got me thinking about some of my other favorites from the 80's - Night Court and Barney Miller (which we played in high school stage band).



FYI, there are a couple of very long TV and movie theme threads if you search.

The Funk version of this show was best


Why am I thinking Bernard Purdie is playing the drums there?
