1970 which is ok with me. Some of these were hard to pick for various reasons. Any list with Laverne & Shirley or Welcome Back Kotter were automatically disqualified. I can't stand those shows.

1978 but none of those lineups were exactly like the quiz where I lived. So I picked the ones that had the most of my fav

1974 - I was 8-years-old and sadly, TV probably was at it's best then. Looking at what's on currently I can truly say it hasn't gotten better since then. Loved the 70s detective shows the best.

I got 1975.
There were so many of these with shows in multiple groups per question that I really liked matched with others I either didn't like or never heard of, so I didn't know which to pick.

1972.... okay... I guess... although we all were forced to pick from groupings of shows where I only liked one or two of them in the batch.

Same here. It could also use the option of None Of The Above.

Loved just about everyone of them. Greatest decade for family television time hands down in my humble opinion. lol
But the T.V. Gods gave me a 1971? But I was more of a late 70’s guy 77, 78, 79.

The best year for TV was 1979

They saved the best for last, eh? You couldn't wait for '80s television to kick in.

🤣🤣🤣🤣 yes! I’m an 80’s girl!!

I was skeptical about the accuracy of the quiz, since I had to pick combos which included shows I don't like, but I got "The best year for TV was 1970. In your opinion, the beginning was the best! Probably because there were still a lot of holdovers from the Sixties." I think the quiz would be better if it listed a number of individual shows under each day and let us pick our top 5.
The point was to pick a YEAR. Picking just the shows you liked wouldn't do that since most of the were on over various years.
