Question: What was the number-one television show for 1984? I would like to know for my homework. Thanks. — Dawn, Burbank, Calif.
Televisionary: The only reason I'm answering this is because I'm sure that by the time it appears, you'll have done the right thing and looked it up yourself, Dawn. (And I'm betting the local librarian knows a little about the entertainment biz there in Burbank.) But for everyone else's benefit, Dallas was tops in the Nielsens from September 1983 to April 1984, while Dynasty took the crown for the following fall-to-spring TV season.
