Ranking The Best Television Shows from the 1980’s

25. The Love Boat (1977-87)

More than 30 years before Below Deck became one of America’s favorite reality shows, The Love Boat swept the nation thanks to its humorous tone and wild antics that took place on the ship. Starring MacLeod as Captain Merrill Stubing, the entirety of Love Boat took place on a real-life cruise ship — S.S. Pacific Princess. The ABC comedy drama took place over nine seasons, and was a big enough hit to spawn five specials. In 2017, the original main cast received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
