  1. Well let's have it ...

    This is tough. My vote was close - between Hawaii Five-O and Cheers - but ultimately, I went with Cheers.


    * This should be limited to only songs written specifically for TV shows (like Cheers and Friends) and not shows that borrowed songs for a show (like Greatest American Hero and Bosom Buddies).

    I stand corrected on GMH ... I'll change it.

    This list is built to fail. It has to be at least 50 choices.

    No Rockford Files?

    No WKRP?

    No Welcome Back Kotter?

    No Greatest American Hero? I think the show came before the song.

    Gotta go with "Home to Emily", the theme from the original Bob Newhart Show followed closely by the theme from "Mannix".

    Vocals
    The closing theme from "WKRP". Incoherent and fabulous.

    I just voted "Other".

    No F Troop?

    I'm sensing a theme
