Can you identify the top TV shows of 1989 from one image?

Recognize these Top 20 hits from the opening credits alone?

 

Sitcoms ruled in 1989. Out of the Top 20 shows on television, a dozen of them were comedies. A couple of them (Chicken Soup, Grand) are pretty obscure these days, but we bet you know the rest of them. Elsewhere on the dial, lawyers and cops entertained us with their cases. 

Below, you will find images from the opening credits of 1989's most popular TV shows. They all pulled in more than 15 million viewers according to the Nielsen ratings and ranked in the Top 20. See if you can name them. Good luck!
  1. More than 20 million viewers a week tuned into this, the No. 2 show on TV in 1989.

You got 10 out of 11 - Awesome! When it comes to 1989, you're a bigger deal than Paula Abdul. Missed #4. Took a guess and missed. But I'll take it!!

I only got #6 wrong, which is understandable as I completely despise "Golden Girls" and never watch it.
