Must see TV no more

Remember the days of must see TV on NBC? The peacock network used to rule the ratings, especially on Thursday night. Shows like Seinfeld, Friends, and ER garnered monster ratings for NBC, but the best lineup on NBC had to be in the 1980s. Will this lineup ever be matched again?

  • 8:00PM The Cosby Show
  • 8:30PM Family Ties
  • 9:00PM Cheers
  • 9:30PM Night Court
  • 10:00PM LA Law
  • 11:30PM The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson
  • 12:30AM Late Night with David Letterman
  • 1:30AM Later with Bob Costas

Now the #4 network out of 6, I'm sure NBC wishes they could recapture some of the magic from the 1980s. Thursday nights are now ruled by CBS with the #1 show, CSI.
