List Rules Upvote the TGIF programs you wish were still on today. Shows that aired during the original run of ABC's TGIF programming block only.

The original TGIF programming block on ABC was a staple of the 1990s and introduced viewers to some of the best sitcoms of all time, including Full House and Step by Step, among many others. From 1988 to 2000, the TGIF block entertained viewers of all ages, but which of these classic TGIF shows do you wish were still going strong today?

Fans of Boy Meets World were thrilled when the spinoff series Girl Meets World began its run in 2014, but a spinoff just isn't quite the same. Which TGIF characters do you miss the most? Do you wish that Sabrina and the family in Dinosaurs were still airing each Friday, with new stories? The TGIF block encouraged viewers to tune in for the entire evening of programming, rather than just their favorite show.

From Family Matters to lesser known favorites like Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, TGIF shows still hold a special place in the hearts of many '90s kids and television addicts alike. Cast your votes for the TGIF shows you wish were still on today!
