Seasons:
1985-86 1986-87 1987-88 - 1988-89 - 1989-90 1990-91 1991-92

This was the television schedule on all four networks for the fall season beginning in September 1988. All times are Eastern and Pacific, with certain exceptions, such as Monday Night Football.
The highest-rated show for the year is colored in lime.

Note: A writers' strike hindered the ability to start airing shows in a timely manner. The shows in the tables were the first to air new episodes in their respective slots. Some of the new shows debuted as late as November 1988.

PBS, the Public Broadcasting Service, was in operation but the schedule was set by each local station.
