    Hi there! My name's Sean! I'm 26 years old, and I've got autism. I've posted here before, and I'm just curious, since NBC is my all time favorite television network, and since I like the television shows and television commercials that originally aired on NBC from December 31, 1993 and before (before both "Friends" and "ER" both premiered on NBC in September of 1994) while Johnny Carson and Jay Leno were hosting "The Tonight Show" on NBC (before anybody even heard of Jimmy Fallon), what are your favorite NBC television shows that originally aired on NBC from December 31, 1993 and before? The reason I ask is because (and this may sound very weird, but then again like I said, I have autism), personally, in my honest opinion, that there was life before Joey, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, and Dr. John Carter! LOL! I liked most of the NBC television shows that originally aired on NBC from December 31, 1993 and before except for "The Cosby Show", for reasons I won't go into! And by the way, here's my all time-favorite NBC "Must See TV" Thursday Night Lineup from September 1, 1993 to December 31, 1993! Even though I was only just a baby at just 2 years old! LOL!
    7:00 PM - first 11 episodes of the 2nd season of "Mad About You"
    7:30 PM - first 11 episode of the 5th season of "Wings"
    8:00 PM - first 11 episodes of the 5th season of "Seinfeld" *
    8:30 PM - first 12 episodes of the very 1st season of "Fraiser"
    9:00 PM - first 9 episodes of the 8th and final season of "L.A. Law"

    * Fun fact about the first 11 episodes of the 5th season of "Seinfeld" from September 1, 1993 to December 31, 1993: The episode "The Puffy Shirt" (which is a classic! LOL!) which originally aired on NBC on September 23, 1993 was Jerry Stiller's very first appearance as George Costanza's dad Frank Constanza! LOL!

    Thanks!
    Sean

    Raw Toonage, Marsupilami, The Super Mario Bros Super Show, and The Legend of Zelda did not air on NBC. You always keep saying Marsupilami, your favorite cartoon, aired on NBC. Why is that?

    Also, Chuck came out WAY after Friends and ER.

    I was correct but CBS recently aired Raw Toonage (with the iconic CBS StereoSound logo underneath) during the 90s (along with Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy)
