the top 20

When I was in 6th Grade, my teacher, Mr. Howard, used to give out "computer cards" every morning if we could guess the top 20 Nielson Rating TV Shows. Computer cards were sought after by every 6th Grader at Irving because at the end of the year, there was a huge auction and you could buy the coolest stuff. I don't even know what they used these cards for!
I rarely won. I was terrible at this game. Some kids would study the Nielson's just so they could get the cards and buy the big stuff at the end of the year. I usually gave mine away, or used them to buy candy.

Anyway, here are the top 20 of the year from when I was in 6th grade!

04. M*A*S*H
05. Alice

I remember some of those shows... from reruns. Just kidding. I watched a lot of those growing up, too.

I remember "the cards!!!!!" I had Miss Werecamp (who is now Mrs. Egli lol, not sure i spelled her name right.) I remember the auctions. This one group of boys would put all their cards together and buy EVERYTHING. I remember one of the really "hot" items was a bottle of pop LOL!!!!
