Pick: What would you watch on TV in 1991?

Dinosaurs, Doogie and Darkwing Duck, oh my!

Hop in the time machine — we're going back three decades! 

In 1991, we were treated to Must See TV and TGIF at their peaks. Reality TV was kicking into high gear with hosts William Shatner and Robert Stack. FOX was finally competing with the Big Three.

We flipped through the old TV listings to find some actual offerings from the year 1991. Pick what you would watch — and see how your taste stacks up against the rest!

Who in the hell wrote the first question? America's Funniest Home Videos was never on at eight unless ABC ran two episodes--even when Bob Saget hosted the original 30-minutes how, it was on at SEVEN!

Not a fan of the Bob Saget era of that show. Saget was lame as a host (including his attempts to do vocal impersonations during the videos) and during his hosting gig, I called the show "America's Stupidest Home Videos" (just as South Park did when it parodied the show's Saget era).

It probably was posted as central time. Which would be an hour earlier in some states.

I like the earlier episodes because Crow T Robot was a writer on them.

I should remember to avoid these 90s quizzes! There weree only a handful of shows I watched, and they were mostly UHF shows like ANGEL, MARRIED WITH CHILDREN, THE SIMPSONS and WWF SMACKDOWN!

I was MOSTLY into TV38's MOVIE LOFT which featured great movies from several decades! Who needed Susan Dey and Harry Hamlin when I had NATALIE WOOD and STEVE McQUEEN???

I worked evenings in the 90s and had cable. I watched maybe 2 of these shows.

I didn't finish this.
There were to many times where I would have said "None of the Above"

Same, I quit at question 3 when I realized I never watched any of these shows.

This was not a high point for network TV. A lot of these shows I never watched.

A lot of cable and dish TV started by then. HBO was way more interesting.

Compared with network TV today, 1991 was like a golden age.

These polls need a "None of the above" option.

They needed to add a answer [ I would read a magazine]
That was the decade I did not watch much TV and I'm a big tv fan.

With that lineup, I'm glad I worked nights in 1991.

43% similar. Truth be told, didn't watch too much television if at all from 1989 to 1996. Just wasn't interested.
