Voyagers was great R.I.P. Jon-Erik Hexum. the Fall Guy, T.J. Hooker, Simon & Simon, Knight Rider, the '80's had some good shows on growing up.

I have really absolutely missed the show “Harper Valley PTA” starring Barbara Eden.
This would be a must favourite to watch day or night. 🙂
Please consider having this air.

Every thing is great entertainment, all the late night shows are all too political anti Trump for most people. who voted for him. They don’t watch them, boycott their advertisers and can’t wait to vote for him again MAGA

MAGA is un-American.

21% similar. This brings back memories, how crappy TV shows were in the 80s, I don't recall watching most of these shows and just picked the ones that I remember being less awful:(.

My score wasn`t high because They left out some pretty good shows of 1982 that I watched more than the ones they listed...
Hill Street Blues
Three`s Company
Barney Miller
Gong Show
Family Ties
St. Elsewhere
Knots Landing

Yeah, your post pretty much sums it up. No NEWHART? No HILL STREET? If MeTV is gonna continue to do these polls there should be a NONE OF THE ABOVE option.
