I've seen 4 of those. Now can you come up with 13 tragedies? SHows, I mean, not real life. That would be too easy. :-)

Gina Ardito said...

God, yes! But I also remember All in the Family, M*A*S*H, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. and all.

Anonymous said...

Oh man, I remember watching every one of these! Night Court still remains one of my all time favorites.

Grace Draven

Rhonda Stapleton said...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA - oh, memories...what GOOD TIMES...

I used to LOVE Night Court. And Moonlighting--does that count? :D

Tempest Knight said...

OMG! I loved Mork and Mindy! Nanoo-Nanoo!

Elle Fredrix said...

Oh, the memories these bring back. I also remember watching Carol Burnett. I loved that show!

Loribelle Hunt said...

Cool list. Anyone remember Soap? I loved that show!

Debbie Mumford said...

Nice one!

Robin L. Rotham said...

I must be a few years older than you are -- you lost me at about number four. But I watched and loved a lot of the others as an adult. :D

R.G. ALEXANDER said...

I'm now singing all the theme songs in my head. lol

Diana Castilleja said...

I can't believe how many of those I watched and remember... wow... Make me feel old there, will ya'? LOL

Wasn't a huge fan of the sitcoms of the 80's, but I know I watched them. Cosby, yes. Night Court. Oh man yes.. :)

Okay, I'm going to count my gray hairs again. :P

Michelle said...

I probaly watched 11 of those 13 regularly and all of them at one time or another. Great list! :-)

gwen said...

Thursday nights rocked! Cosby, Family Ties, Cheers, and Night Court.

Lyric said...

I've watched each and everyone one of those shows. Night Court was my hubbies favorite. The Cosby Show is mine.

Jennifer McK said...

See, in my house, we were watching ChiPs and The Bionic Woman. Go figure.

Shari said...

You've gotta add Soap and MASH.

*imagine me singing the theme song to Laverne and Shriley here*

Heather said...

Babe ~ LOL, I imagine you get a lot more American programs now than when we were growing up. Of course, we also have Nic at Nite for those we missed (or just plain miss).

Grace & Rhonda ~ Night Court was one of my all-time faves, too.

Loribelle ~ I vaguely remember Soap, but think I saw more of that one in late night reruns than when it originally aired.

R.G. ~ Yes, that was the downside of this list. I've had theme songs playing in my head the last 24 hours. LOL

Heather said...

Gwen ~ Thursday and Friday nights used to rock. I remember some of these airing that night, too.

Jennifer McK ~ LOL, we used to watch CHiPs, too, but wasn't that on Sunday night?

Shari ~ I'm singing right along with you. So are Wayne and Garth. Hehe...

Annalee Blysse said...

Bensen is probably the only one I can't really remember. The rest I recall fondly. :)

Heather said...

Annalee~ Benson was sort of the "Spin City" of the 70s/early 80s, except it featured a bungling governor instead of a bungling mayor. ;)
