Pick: What would you watch on TV in 1986?

The clicker is in your hands.

It was good to be young in 1986. The Nintendo Entertainment System hit stores. Movies like Ferris Bueller, Aliens, Top Gun and Labyrinth pretty much had us living at the multiplex. "Take My Breath Away" was blasting out of every stereo.

Oh, and there were a ton of great shows on television. This was the final year before the Fox network hit the airwaves. Sure, cable was growing, but most of us just had the options on the three majors — NBC, CBS and ABC.

You have the remote. Let's go through the schedule from the fall of '86 and see what you would watch. Compare your answers with others!

Oh, and you can still catch shows like MacGyver, Matlock, Cheers and Sledge Hammer! on MeTV!
