Was this TV show a top-rated hit in 1965, 1975 or 1985?

Sorting these series into the correct decade is harder than it seems.

 
Television shows live and die by their Nielsen ratings. For decades, the ratings service has compiled a Top 30 list of television shows for the season. If a show failed to crack the Top 30, it would mean bad news.

Below, you'll find a list of 15 TV shows. They all ranked in the Top 30 for the 1965–66, 1975–76 or 1985–86 television seasons. Actually, most of them were Top 20 shows. So you should remember them all, right?

Try to match them all to the correct year!
  1. Gunsmoke
  2. The Waltons
  3. One Day at a Time
  4. Highway to Heaven
  5. Good Heavens
  6. Laverne & Shirley
  7. Kate & Allie
  8. Valerie
  9. Phyllis
  10. The Lucy Show
  11. Daktari
  12. Falcon Crest
  13. The Red Skelton Hour
  14. I've Got a Secret
  15. You Again

Laverne & Shirley was not on the air in 1975. It premiered in 1976.

Someone needs to look at the definition of "top".

13/15 I did not know some of these were so popular so soon in their run.
Kate & Allie would be a good sitcom to add to the METV lineup.

14/15, missed that last one. Never heard of "You, Again?", although it sounds familiar.

By the way. Both Valerie & You Again? Premiered in March of 1986 making the answer technically incorrect.
