Color TV didn't come out until the late 50's. And at that time, most programs were in black and white so it didn't make much difference. One of the first color programs in color was the western, Bonanza. Followed by The World of Disney and then color programming grew from there.

Personally, we got our first color TV in the early sixties (A Zenith). It weighed a ton because of the huge power Transformers and it seemed like every 90 days or so it required a service call to have someone come out to test and change the vacuum tubes that were getting weak. The colors would smear, get blurry, etc.

It really wasn't until transistors were used in TV's that they became less of a service nightmare and expense to own and operate. The old tube sets also ate up the juice, coming in around 360 watts of power consumption.
