Pick: What would you watch on TV in 1994?

It's Matlock vs. Seinfeld; The Nanny vs. The Fresh Prince. You pick who wins!

We dug through the network lineups from the fall of '94 to give you the choice all over again. Let's pretend you jump back 25 years. What would you watch on television? It's an important question.

What about for Saturday morning in 1994: Power Rangers on FOX Kids or Sonic the Hedgehog on ABC Kids or Beethoven the Animated Series on CBS Kids or Saturday Today on NBC?

If you jump 24 hours ahead from Monday, it'd be Tuesday, not Wednesday. Do you people ever check your content or research what you're posting? Seems like every week there's at least a handful of stupid errors. Or, to put it in your own vernacular, "it looks like you spent way too much time watching TV instead of going to school. Better luck next time."

3. Wings.
5. My older brother watched My So-Called Life religiously.
6. Watched too many Seinfeld episodes. My sanity hasn't recovered since then.
8. Homicide: Life on the Street one of my all-time favorites. Detective Bayliss played by Kyle Secor. Lauren Tom was the goth who made love in coffins.
9. Nightline usually 30 minutes, so probably caught The Cranberries in back half of Late Show. Al Green's best late-night TV appearances were on Letterman's show.
11. Sisters (just a handful of episodes).
Didn't watch any of the shows on this quiz not mentioned in my comment.

Question #3: I've only seen the commercial for it a couple of times, {so I am not 100% certain. For those of you that are interested in viewing any/all things William Shatner, next month Heroes & Icons are supposed to be airing Rescue 911. Like I said, I'm not 100% certain When I saw it listed, I immediately remembered this.
Shatner also has a new series called The UnXplained on the History channel.

43% similar because there was no choice labeled "I like to read". Honestly, I fudged the quiz with a couple choices that I would NEVER have watched, plus a few shows I wasn't really "into" back then unlike today. But the only one for sure we were watching was Lois and Clark. Never missed it.

67% similar.Agreed needs none of the above opton.Melrose Place only getting 10%,and Seinfeld just barely beating out Matlock tells me most people on here are a lot older then I thought.Funny though back then I would never consider watching Matlock instead of Seinfeld.I'm not sure if I knew it even exsisted.Today I would rather watch Matlock.😄 70% for Bugs Bunny.The man is timeless.😋

Big Mistake on Matlock! It started on NBC in 1986 but was on ABC in 1994! The closest Matlock came to being on CBS was a guest appearance on Diagnosis:Murder several years later!
