Earlier this year, we asked our readers to pick their favorite TV shows of the 1990s. Votes poured in by the hundreds, and ultimately Seinfeld topped a list that included The Simpsons, Friends, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The X-Files.
Now we have another question for you: What is the the single best television show of the 1980s? Not all shows fit neatly into decades, so we’re going to accept any program that reached its cultural peak during these years. That means Happy Days won’t count, but The Facts of Life will. Feel free to vote for a beloved sitcom like Cheers or Diff’rent Strokes, a primetime soap opera like Dallas or Knots Landing, or even something completely insane like Small Wonder or Out of This World. Any 1980s TV show counts, but please only vote once and only for a single selection.
