In 1987, 'thirtysomething' Brought Baby Boomer Problems to Primetime

5 hours ago

thirtysomething has turned 30. Yes, Michael, Hope and the gang now qualify for Social Security.

The Emmy-winning show, which ran for four seasons, was part of ABC's effort to reach that demo, and the network promoted it with an ad that said, "Real life is an acquired taste."

When thirtysomething first aired Sept. 29, 1987, The Hollywood Reporter's review was a bit harsh. It sounded like a grizzled World War II veteran describing the younger generation as self-indulgent, whining yuppies. ("You have to care for someone other than yourself, »
