It was a good year for pop culture in 1983. Return of the Jedi ruled the box office, while Michael Jackson dominated the charts with "Billie Jean" and "Beat It."

The TV was rather spectacular, too, with a perfect mix of sitcoms, action and drama. And lots of cool cars, of course.

So, the remote — or, well, the channel knob — is in your hand. Here's what was on the major networks. What are you watching? See how popular your picks are.
  1. We begin on February 3, 1983. It's a Thursday. What will you watch?
  2. After that's over, what are you watching in the next hour?
  3. It's a rainy Monday evening in March. We're staying in. What should we watch at 8PM?
  4. It's Sunday night and you just finished dinner. Pick a show to watch at 8PM.

I think Dan Rather - CBS - was more popular in the early 80's than Brokaw -NBC
