Top 10: Best TGIF Shows
For a period of about 10 years, ABC's Friday-night programming held sway in America, and we were glued to the couch or VCR every week. Hell, what else were we going to do? We couldn't drive, drink, shave, and we hated girls. Granted we were five years old in 1988, but you get the idea.
Still chasin' Topanga: the only reason we watched Boy Meets World
TGIF was one of the most-loved blocks of programming ever to hit us '80s babies. The families and situations typified what we all wanted in America in the late '80s: big families full of love, odd romantic triangles, nannies, nerds, dweebs, flashback episodes, and people getting pies thrown in their faces (and minorities whenever you could fit them in there somewhere too were always good).
Here are our favorite TGIF shows from 1988 to 1999, when it officially started sucking. You don't remember Baby Talk?
10. Sabrina The Teenage Witch
Melissa Joan Hart followed up her success on Nickelodeon's Clarissa Explains It All with this show about a teen witch, a talking cat, and two witch aunts. Remember when MJH was in Maxim? Oh man, that ruled.
