1982-83 Top 30 Ratings -- Soap Bubbles Rise, Several Veterans Part


Written Asking Where Cheers is by Bridger Cunningham

Ratings Data prior to 1984 is scarce, to TV Ratings Guide will post what is available and may update overall network ranks and sitcom scorecards when available.

CBS again claimed a victory this season, despite losing three sitcoms in the top 30.  Soaps raised the bar, with all four entries in the top 20.  ABC experienced declines of its aging sitcom franchises, and NBC held few top 30 entries.  Newfound A-Team came in strong, while Little House On the Prairie bid adieu to the beloved homestead.
