I’m not surprised at all that “Raiders of the Lost Ark” put up huge TV ratings. In fact, I would have been surprised if it didn’t.

We’re talking about an all-time classic movie. We’re talking about one of the greatest movies ever made. It’s about Indiana Jones fighting Nazis!

It’s one of the greatest series ever made, and it all started with “Raiders.”

It’s also a great move by CBS to bring back movie nights on Sundays for people during the ongoing pandemic.

People need something to help them raise morale and smile. Airing classic movies like “Indiana Jones” is a great way to get the job done.

Let us know your favorite Indiana Jones movie in the comments. Mine is for sure “Raiders.” There’s no doubt about that at all.
