Did that ever bring back memories. Some of my favorites were:

Battlestar Galactica was a must see (this ended up coming back but is totally different than the original)
The ATeam was another must see.
Three's Company was so funny.
Alf was great as well.
Facts of Life was also fun as well.
I loved the game shows, especially Lets Make a Deal, The Price is Right and The Dating Game. I also thought the Newlywed Game was hilarious.

Cartoons: Smurfs, GI Joe (such a girl am I, huh?), Hercules (before school), Transformers (again...such a girl...my brother controlled the cartoons), Looney Tunes (favorite is still Bugs & Elmer Fudd when they did the opera music)

Dramas: MacGyver, Dukes of Hazzard, Airwolf, Greatest American Hero, Automan, Knight Rider, All Creatures Great and Small, The A-Team, Simon & Simon (absolutely adored AJ Simon)

There are probably more but this was 20 years ago...not too shabby if I do say so myself.

The only 80s show I watched without fail was Miami Vice. The first season was awesome. The last season sucked. But always great music and neat guest stars. Sonny and Rico in a reprisal? Sure, but who would play them?

Oh, wow, this brings back memories. I could never get enough of Richard Dean Anderson. I don't remember watching many game shows in those days. I was hooked on the soaps.
