You might have missed it with the revelry and boozing surrounding New Year’s Eve, but before the ball dropped on another year, the world lost Betty White, a few months shy of her 100th birthday. The American institution had a ridiculous career that spanned nine decades (yes, you read that right). Her first work was in radio, and she went on to host shows and act in countless TV shows and movies.
It’s hard to pinpoint her most memorable work. But, in our opinion, it’s really difficult to top her role of Rose Nyland on ‘The Golden Girls.’ This show that aired from 1985 to 1992 deserves a revisit. Thanks to streaming services, you can. This makes us think of other ‘80s-era shows that deserve another watch. Below, in honor of Betty White, we ranked the best 1980s sitcoms you can stream right now.
