Desparate Housewives - Upgrade

I've been quite happy with Desparate Housewives this year, except the period of reruns in late winter. I say kudos to the show for the finale tonight - I won't give anything away for those of you on the Left Coast who are about to watch the show in 40 min... I thought it did a great job of closing up a several of the holes in the story, but leaving enough ? to make you excited for next fall's season premiere. All together, a fine job NBC.

And, I might add, that Grey's Anatomy closed quite well as well - I enjoyed the syphillis storyline (v. funny) and also am looking forward to this show coming back in the fall. Hopefully they'll keep them both on Sunday nights - unless Sopranos is coming back this fall? - but I like Sunday night TV better than any other night esp. on CST.

Question - has Sunday night been a good TV night for years and years? I can't remember it being a keynote night for shows prior to HBO initiating Sex and the City and Sopranos. What night were the old, big shows on? I think Dallas, Dynasty, Melrose Place, and all the sitcoms were always on weeknights. Examples of popular Sunday night shows from the 80s/90s?

Dallas was every Friday night at 9 pm for years! We used to go out to dinner early enough to be home before it started. I think Dynasty was also on a weeknight - maybe Wednesday?
