Let's be real, the '90s had some of the best TV shows! We were feeling a little bit nostalgic, so we're counting down some of the best shows of the decade: 

1. Friends

Friends was probably one of the best TV shows to air in the '90s. We fell in love with Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe. We watched the group as they fell in love, fought, laughed and sipped coffee at Central Perk. The show's first episode aired on September 22, 1994 and lasted 10 seasons. Thankfully, you can watch the series all over on Netflix! 

2. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Will Smith starred in the show as a street-smart kid that was sent away to live with his aunt and uncle in Bel Air. The theme song which was performed by Smith, set the tone for the show. Will's working class background collided with his extended family's wealthy upbringing in a funny way.  The series first aired on September 10, 1990 and lasted six seasons. 

3. Saved by the Bell

Saved by the Bell followed around a group of high school at Bayside High School and their principal. The show touched on some serious topics in a light-hearted way. AOL TV named it one of the "20 Best School Shows of all Time." Saved by the Bell was so popular, it had two spin-offs; Saved by the Bell: The College Years and Saved by the Bell: The New Class. Jimmy Fallon just recently came out with a skit from when he was at Bayside High and brought back most of the original cast to help him. The show aired from August 20, 1989 to May 22, 1993. 

4.  Full House

Full House shares the story of Danny Tanner who raises his three daughters with the help of his best friend and brother-in-law. The show is known for its famous catch phrases, "how rude," "have mercy," "cut it out" and "you got it dude." Netflix recently brought the cast back for Fuller House and are currently taping a second season of that show. The original show aired from September 22, 1987, to May 23, 1995, lasting eight seasons.

5. Boy Meets World

Boy Meets World follows Cory Matthews from his middle school days, through high school. In middle school, he has a crush on his friend, Topanga, but hides it by picking on her. As they grow up, we watch as Cory and Topanga start to fall an love and go through the struggles of being in high school. In the final seasons, the two get married and share one of TV's best love stories. The show had a spin off, Girl Meets World, which follows their daughter Riley. The show first aired on September 24, 1993 and lasted seven seasons. 

6. Seinfeld

Seinfeld has been known as the "show about nothing," but for nine season it made us laugh. The show is set in Manhattan's Upper West Side and follows the everyday life of Jerry, his best friend George, former girlfriend Elaine and the neighbor across the hall, Cosmo. In 2002, TV Guide named Seinfeld the "best TV program of all time." The show debuted on July 5, 1989 and ended on May 14, 1998. 

7. Beverly Hills, 90210

A show about the nation's most well-known zip code aired throughout the 1990s. The show told the story of twins Brandon and Brenda who experienced culture shock when their parents moved the family from Minneapolis to Beverly Hills. AOL TV named the show one of the "Best School Shows of All Time." The show lasted 10 seasons and premiered on October 4, 1990. 

8. The X-Files

The X-Files is about FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. Special Agent Mulder is a beliver in the supernatural and has the nickname "Spooky." He's assigned to handle unsolved cases, known as the X-Files. The show's suspense was based off other shows like Alfred Hitchcock PresentsThe Twilight Zone and Kolchak: The Night Stalker. The show first aired on September 10, 1993 and lasted nine seasons. Don't worry, it's back! To celebrate, Jimmy Kimmel acted in a skit of one of his favorite shows. 

9. Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Melissa Joan Hart stars as Sabrina, who in her 16th birthday, discovers she has magical powers. She lives with her 600-year-old aunts who are also witches and her black cat Salem. The series originally aired on September 27, 1996 and lasted seven seasons.
