Must See TV

Even before there was Must See TV, there were great prime-time shows lined up on the major networks, back-to-back-to-back…

See how well you know your TV history by putting the shows in order from 8-11pm. The networks often juggle shows around mid-season, but these stayed put during the seasons indicated (more or less) - they’re amazing lineups that have been cemented in television history.
