Bad TV Show Description Round

We had a lot of fun with this wild card round this past week. Special shout out to Denver Dicker for giving me this idea (and a few of the questions). I give you the year a show debuted and description not of the show but of the show’s title. For example if I said “1978-An explosive expose of the private life of Philly’s favorite quizmaster” you would answer “Good Times” (since that’s the show that came out in 1978.) Got it? Good. Here ya go. Answers after the jump.
