TV shows of the 1980s/90s with POV voice-over narration

I have two characters discuss US TV shows of the 1980s and 1990s that are similar to contemporary shows like Sex and the City, Scrubs or Desperate Housewives in terms of having one character narrate the events seen on the screen with his or her personal POV. Unfortunately, I just can't think of any good examples, so I'm hoping for further ideas.

I've already googled the keywords from my subject line, went through lists of TV shows of that period on Wikipedia and done an IMDB keyword search, but all of that didn't come up with anything I didn't know already and it's difficult to judge when you're not 100% familiar with the show.

So far, the only really fitting example I could think of was "The Wonder Years". I was also considering "Quantum Leap", "Star Trek" or "Dukes of Hazzard", but neither of those really have a POV narration but rather just a voice-over commentary, so that's not perfect either. It's just important that it has this sorta personal, reflective quality to it.

I know this is a bit strange, but maybe you guys have an idea! Thanks!

Edit to add: Actually, shows older than that would be fine too! At this point I'm taking anything I can get! >.>;
