Flashback Monday: Full Nielsen Ratings From The 1989-90 TV Season

I got out some of my old TV Guides and decided to upload a pic of the full Nielsen ratings for the 1989-90 TV season that TV used to publish (or they not do this anymore?).

This was the season that features 3 then new television shows that are still running today!

1. The Simpson's
2. America's Funniest Home Videos
3. Primetime

We get the debut of some successful shows that ran 4 seasons or longer, among them:

–Empty Nest
–Family Matters
–Doogie Howser, M.D
–Major Dad
–Life Goes On
–Rescue 911
–COPS

Sadly, this is the was the last year of Newhart, Mr. Belvedere, It's Garry Shandling's Show, 227, My Two Dads and ALF.

In the drama category, we have also have the exit of cult favorite Beauty and the Beast (back when CBS was interesting) and long running soap Falcon's Crest.

Chicken Soup is heralded by TV Critics as the FLOP OF THE YEAR, ABC debuts Twin Peaks in April and after NBC cancels Baywatch the show (the show becomes a major international hit in syndication).

Blast from the past. There were some great shows back in the day.

Re: Flashback Monday: Full Nielsen Ratings From The 1989-90 TV Season

I agree.

It's funny..

I see more "Matlock" and "Murder, She Wrote" on my Grid Guide than I do "The Office".

Same goes with "Seinfeld" and "Everybody Loves Raymond.

Also see more "Family Matters" then any single camera comedy on TBS.

Thinking of it now…

Same goes with "Modern Family".

The 90s were the best for comedy.
